Looks good, maybe check out a faster shutter speed. It will help get the rider with better sharpness, and still have the blurring in the background. Nice work

I like the pics. Who the hell wants to see vehicles just frozen in time? The background blur gives you a sense that the rider is actually moving, a sense of speed.

Great pics!


Some have mentioned increasing the shutter speed next time, I wouldn't recommend that unless you want it to look like the bike isn't moving at all. Depending on what you are going for, a faster shutter speed can work. It looks like your buddy went for the slower shutter speed for a more blurred background. Some pics will come out blurry with a slower shutter speed if you haven't practiced a lot at panning. Take the pic above for example, the rider and the middle of the bike is in focus while everything else is out of focus. If you want more of the bike in focus next time, keep the shutter speed the same, but increase the aperture up to around F8. This way more of the subject will be in focus while the background is still blurred and out focus. The pics still turned out great.

You can achieve a blurred background but have a focused subject with a faster shutter speed and/or panning.

With the following pic, I captured the motion effect while keeping it in focus. IIRC the shutter speed was a mere 1/125 and I could probably have gone down a bit. (please ignore the noise).
