Some great shots there @Kae1 - great to see some more bike (and BSB) shotsJust finished editing another meeting from last year. This time the BSB round at Oulton Park in May using the EM1 mk1 and Olympus 75-300. Whilst most of the photos were between 75mm and 200mm I have been pleasantly surprised at the IQ of the lens and shows (to me at least) how a bit of editing improves the SOOC.
Thanks for kind words (and inspiration).I’ve never been to Oulton - must get there one day for BSB or perhaps Thundersports if my stepson makes it back there at some point
What’s it like for vantage points for photos ?
Love that first shot of Irwin on the Honda - great action shot with the front wheel in the air @Kae1 Was that inside of Redgate ?Just finished editing another meeting. The only other BSB round I got to visit in 2019 was Donington Park in May with the Olympus EM1 and 75-300. Because you can't get as near to the track, it showed up the limitations* of the lens at longer lengths, or my technique when using the longer lengths (*that's what I told myself as justification to spend some more money!).

Yes that's right. They are all in that area. It can get busy at the apex but you can usually find a bit of standing space further down and then move back when the superbikes have finished.
I don’t know them all but those I do know I tend to recognise from their Helmet colour scheme rather than from their numbersSniff.
I used to know the names of the Riders/Teams/Bikes in BSB...but no more.
Heck, I used to know them in the WSB.... but still no more. <shrug>
The long hair behind the rider of 57/Triumph (A 675?) reminds me of the Japanese riders of the 250cc GP days... when Rossi was Rossifumi.
Thank you for the Feedback and observation - it is good to get another pair of eyes looking at things.Kae - a query if I may?
Do you do a white-colour balance on your images? I ask because it seems as though the images vary in look - most of them appear to have a blue-tint to them.
Do you use an ND filter or polariser on your lens?
I've only tried a Polariser for landscapes but know that it could cut the reflections off the bodywork, windscreens etc. although I suppose with the lenses I've got I need the extra light in the first place .Even now me relooking at the white fiesta above, I think I could have bumped the exposure a smidge (upwards) - the images were shot with a Hoya Polariser.
