very impressive for someone who's only been shooting 6months, you've definitely got your panning perfected.

not only is there great panning action, technique and composition, but lighting too. from the looks of it your polariser never leaves your lens ^_^

so tell us a bit about the technique on panning? do you just follow the car and take the shot (in a simple term)

Tefu, there is no special techinque to it. Its just lots of practice :) and there all handheld aswel.

That's it Tefu, all people really work out their own technique, some people use monopods, I can't really imagine using something that looks so bulky.
