Great first attempt, James! Just need to slow down the shutter a little.

Did you try IS Mode 2?

I used 1/500 for panning shot, but with practice I should be able to go for a slower shutter speed and get a more blurred background and wheels. But happy with this for a first attempt with a new camer and lens.

When you get down to the nuts and bolts of photography, the results depend on the 'nut' behind the camera!

See the 'Gear List' in my 'Profile' for my current equipment.
