It is hard to convey just how fast these cars are going – at places, over 190 mph!  For this photo I closed the aperture down as far as I could ( F/32), dropped my ISO to 100, and ended up with a shutter speed of 1/25th of a second.  I then panned with the car – this left the start finish line along with the background in a nice blur.

    Thanks Richard,

    I should mention – this was the only one the turned out!

    Yeah, it was with the 100-400. I figured the IS would help.

  2. Cool. I asked because I tried out the 100-400 on a 50D briefly at the store and really liked that combination. Surprising how low of a shutter you can use and keep it steady w/ that lens.

    If you can find a sharp version, it is a nice lens – a very convenient range, especially on that camera.

  4. I Love You

    I love you
    like dipping bread into salt and eating
    Like waking up at night with high fever
    and drinking water, with the tap in my mouth
    Like unwrapping the heavy box from the postman
    with no clue what it is
    fluttering, happy, doubtful
    I love you
    like flying over the sea in a plane for the first time
    Like something moves inside me
    when it gets dark softly in Istanbul
    I love you
    Like thanking God that we live.

  6. Hey Ron,

    You’re OK, sometimes. 🙂

    The photo is very cool – great job on the panning. 190mph, eh? Keep working at this, and you’ll manage to grab a shot of me snowboarding someday. 🙂

    Cheers

    Carl

    Hey Carl – between the bobsledders and this, I think I’m finally ready to photograph you snowboarding!
