Stunning Hugo! I really admire your work. I like the shot with the 2 F430 Challenges

To be honest, I had aspected more of these photos. The trick for a good panning-picture is to give the environment a big motion-blur, while keeping the car itself sharp.
The latter is missing on these photos. Maybe because you used a too long shutterspeed, and/or you didn't move the camera exactly right with the car.
The next images show some examples of - in my opinion - better panningshots:


(I just used Google to find these, much better examples must be available

Hugo,

If you would post these on the forum of Frits van Eldik you would be slaughtered... and you know why!

Some part of the object must always be sharp. You have much better pictures.

Maybe the pictures aren't that sharp... but they give a very strong impression of speed!

I like the panning technique but it really takes a lot of pictures to get that right one. Especially when the car is closer to you, or when it's driving very fast taking good panned pictures is difficult. I now use a Image stabilized lens which does it much better. But still lots of misses.

My big question for you, hugo. When panning do you use a monopod? Because I have seen you carrying a long and heavy lens?

Very important is your own interpretation of what is a perfect picture....
Some panned shots of me which I think were one of my better ones. I personally like the tilted cars. Tends to give a dynamic impression... But others think the horizon should be level. First picture is shutterspeed 1/100, second 1/80 (i thank my IS for these speeds

Looked up some of his pictures, and yes some of them are really beautiful. When seeing this post I just couldn't link the pictures with Hugo (and I'm not that good with names..). My opinion about these pictures isn't changed, I don't like them. For me panning shots look best like the way Erik showed, and like Hugo showed in much of his pictures. :

Here are some pix of me in which I " tried" the same thing as Hugo. But I used shorter shutterspeed. (srry Robert for the bugs )

I like Hugo's second pic with the lifting wheel....

What I find strange that in some of the other pics only a small part of the car is in focus... seems like a depth of field issue and not motion related

Actually that is a symptom of the motion with panning. I thought somewhere on this site is another topic about this with an explanation..

I noticed that you cannot Edit an earlier post.

Anyway, Hugo has been around long enough to know what makes a good picture and I am sure he knows what I mean. As a photographer sometimes you try to do things differently and you experiment a lot. As Hugo pointed out in the age before digital camera's you had to sacrifice lots of expensive film to try and get one shot right. Nowadays it is a lot easier, although you still have to make sure that you get your "commercial" pictures first. You're at an event to take pictures of certain cars you get paid for. Only after that you can start experimenting.

When Rainer Schlegelmilch started experimenting with his particular style he received a lot of criticism (of his colleagues). Later he admitted that at least one part of the object in the picture needs to be absolutely sharp. After that he started to further perfect his technique and now it has become his trademark.
For the general public most of the time the object in the picture is more important than the technical quality of the picture itself. That's why I stated "If you would post these on the forum of Frits van Eldik you would be slaughtered". There are mainly photographers on that forum.

Below I added two photos from the analog age and two from the digital age (first two taken with my workhorse the Eos1, latter with Canon 30D). Bear in mind photographs are protected with copyright, although these are only 800x600.

Some elements (like the fence) look familiar to me. Been there with Robert on latest Ferrari Racing Days (sept. 2007), and we also saw that guy in the 360 CS at a gas station, on our trip to the circuit. We stopped there to buy some food, and he came to fill his fueltank. Wonderful car

Robert ... you must know that you gived a flyer to Viken when he was at Paul Ricard too ; but outdoor because he couldn't get into the "buildings" (he didn't make any reservation ...)

Aaaaah!!: how nice!! I always wondered what had become of him. That's very nice. Great! Viken, you are welcome! Amazing, after a few months time that he is here anyway. Fantastic. Why didn't you tell me so Viken!? . It seems to be that in the long run the real F-die-hards end up here. This site attracts them like a magnet. Some can resist it 6 months, maybe a year, others only one hour , anyway, the sooner of later, you got to be here

When I was at Hockenheim during the Ferrari Racing Days, I tried some panningshots also...
I still haven't got the skills yet, but we keep on trying:
