Derek,

Love the third one. It's a textbook shot of the rider's head and must have been quite hard to get.

Re: British Superbikes Oulton Park

All three are great shots but I like the first one best; a real impression of speed, he's using all of the track and you've timed it well to catch him popping the front wheel. Very nice

Cheers,

JohnGG

Re: British Superbikes Oulton Park

Thanks for the comments. All taken from the the spectator enclosure. The second and third shots were at the same place, the third shot took a bit of practice panning to get right. But thats the advantage of digital you can check and correct your mistakes. I only went on the saturday practice day so I could walk around at ease with no problems getting postions to photograph from.
