    went shooting motorsport yesterday, had a good day, missed loads of shots, got in the way of some big lenses, took loads of rubbish shots of the backs/fronts of cars but eventually got the hang of it, need to try it in AI focus next time..shots can be found HERE

    some of the better ones...

    Not too bad at all, what body are you using? I assume it's a Canon as you mention using AI next time, any reason you didn't chop and change throughout the day? I'm spoilt with AI having moved from a Sigma body where i had to use manual focus for most shots, it makes a HUGE difference, and as long as the subject is moving in some kind of predictable fashion, your focus will be spot on for every shot :)

    The only other thing i would say is to lower your shutter speeds and practice those panning shots if you dare!

    yeah some of these are sharp, the ones i havent shown are a bit soft, i have done USM on all the ones above, and some cropping here and there....still need to learn how to post process for colour and lightness though, never really play with that too much
