My first attempt to get some shots at the track. I learned a lot in the process. I could do much better if I were to go back for another day, but alas, the submission deadline is tonight.

Nice idea, though many others had the same. The light is a bit harsh.

This is a beautiful shot - if ever I manage to capture one like this, I'll be well chuffed.

But the blur doesn't feature strongly enough for it to stand out as a "motion blur" photo. If it had been at a slightly different angle, and there had been, say, some obvious blur in the wheel spokes to impart a real sense of speed, then it would have been a different story.

A lovely photo, but not a "speed blur" photo.

This is a beautiful shot of this motorcycle. Great stop action and clarity on the rider and his bike. The background definitely shows motion blur. Great overall shot.

if you had of focused on the track and let the bikes speed blur the motion, you could have been on a winner as the Orange would have looked superb.
As it stands its just another good bike shot
