Thought I'd share a few shots of some friends in a local time trial.

I'm finally starting to get the hang of motion blur. Too bad my sensor was dirty and some good pics had to be thrown out.

Some pretty good sports shots, i never tried sports but the motion blur looks great (aka panning)

Thanks for sharing

Nice shots, but yes - clean your sensor!!!! :P The second image in particular has lots of visible dust spots as well as some on the fifth one. The dust is more visible in these two because you shot them at f/22 and f/11 respectively.

Thanks!
But there's no need to worry about the sensor. Got my cleaning kit yesterday and it was surprisingly simple. The before and after tests using my laptop's monitor was a night and day difference.

I promise much cleaner pictures after the next race.
:D

I might for #2, but other than that I'm not going to bother.
This is Texas so we've got good racing weather the majority of the year. There will be plenty more events and soon I'll step up to something much nicer than the kit lens.

just curious what your settings were for that 2nd shot? Obviously you REALLY underexposed the shot seeing as how every other shot was taken in the bright sun daylight so I assume that one was as well.

JB,

Thanks Mark.

And the one thing that the EXIF data won't tell you is that I was also using a polarizing filter in #2. Not really what it was made to do, but I like the effect it had on the clouds.
