Very succesful use of the panning technique. I would prefer a more tight crop in the top of the picture and maybe a little more space in front of the car. I think that would make the action even more intense. The sharpness is perfect.

Hi Dave, welcome to Psig. As has been said good job with the panning and also good choice of shutter speed to get the BG blur. The car is very sharp for a panned shot especially. I think I'd be tempted to crop the top and bottom to get rid of the wall and the fence. Howard

You did a great panning job here. The Ferrari is sharp, but there is plenty of speed blur on the track, wheels and background. The colors are nicely saturated.

The metal thing in the forground is very disturbing, you could clone it out, or make a much tighter crop.
