Re: World Superbikes Donington Park

Thanks for the comments, I thought I would post a selection from different corners. No1 the rider broke his left tibia and fibula less than a month before. He qualified but decided to sit the races out.

Cracking action shots Derek. I like them all but I think No 2 gives a great impression of acceleration. Do you use autofocus or prefocus on a spot and wait for them to arrive?

Great stuff Derek. I'm not usually that fussed about motor sports, but that's proper motor racing! That last one is brilliant, with the "Romeo" above the rider and the blue/white hatchings kind of shadowing of the bike.

Re: World Superbikes Donington Park

We no longer get World Superbikes coverage over here so this thread's just teasing me.

It would be nice if someone could post the top three in the championship please.

Thanks Ron, generally I use C-AF, Ido on occasions use manual and pre focus usually when shooting the the wire fence.

Re: World Superbikes Donington Park

Thanks again for the comments. My photography is about what I enjoy my 1st camera was purchased because of Motor bike racing and a certain Mr Sheene.
I don't enjoy Portraiture and my landscapes are so so. I will stick to Motorsport.
