Lovely flowering and that fly is pin sharp as far as I can see.

Beautiful time of the year.

Thanks but the XT-2 seems to nail the tracking every time, I can't take the credit, took 1200 shots at the weekend and around 95% are in focus.

Just had a play again tonight, straight out of camera JPG's, there was 9 in this burst and it nailed them all, loving the XT-2.

Not bad at all. Hope you both enjoy the new hobbies!

Next time try slower shutter speeds and move the camera with the movement of the car. Start at, say 1/125th and you might get decent blur of the wheels and background. Then try 1/60th, see how you go. You'll end up with a sensation of speed.

Thanks Tony, I had a little play but nothing as slow as 1/60, will give it a go as I like the blurred background. I tried 1/200 and got this.

+1, playing with slower shutter speeds and panning is well worth trying to communicate the essence of movement in motorsport.

These all 35mm fixed lense, so subjects close-up and moving fast!:
1/30th or less




1/15th or less

Thanks - and yes you're right, it's a great time of year to be out with a camera.

Some great motoring pics here. Just one of the things I can't do easily with a phone.

@ PeteMB&D Beauly is in the detail of your pictures. You seem to find something interesting and worthy of showing everywhere where I have to look hard. I also liked 'Reflections' on the other page.
