    Some nice shots there. Personally I think that on the one with the red car left, you need to blur the background to remove the rather boring station wagon from it. I find my eye being drawn to that area of the picture
    Cheers

    I know what you mean. I'm fairly new to this so i'm learning as I go...how do you suggest I 'blur' the background more, in future? cheers

    The panning shots look good.

    I heard there was a jet vs car showdown, how did that go?

    Camera's include Nikon D7000 plus a 1897 Lancaster Instantograph which still works and a Leica miniature (Minox) digital camera.

    Need to use a wider aperture to blur very distracting background. You've used f10 on the first one, try 5.6 or something.

    On the racing ones you've used f13! That's fine for panning shots to get a slower shutter speed as the background blurs anyway, but use a wider aperture for the fast shutter speed ones.

    T-Bird shot is ok, nice angle, and the stall in the background works...the WRX wagon is ok'ish...
