@Shreyas,
Well, before you think of cropping in PS, I guess you could compose the shots a bit better. Like framing the full car, avoiding laymen in the shots etc

Here is one I clicked at the Drift race, Oh man I am addicted to panning these days...Blame goes to to Samu and Rudra!

@Tortoisenhare
This shot is cool, but as you can see it is a little over exposed. Maybe you could reduce the exposure value a little bit. What camera did you use for this? Whatever camera, it will have an option for Exposure compensation for sure. Try it out, all the best.

Some more panning from my 50mm prime lens:

@TorqueGuru - your photos are really really good. Loved the drifting ones. The CLS photo is wallpaper material if I may say so. Only thing puzzling me is does it have light blue tinted windows ? Or is there something blue behind it.

@anekho
Thanks man, much appreciated. I have received a lot of input form 2 old men in this thread, probably that helped more than any photography forum out there! So you are at the right place to enhance your skills man! Keep clicking!

@btirthankar
Probably, you get a lot of closed roads on NH60 and that's when you stop sitting behind the wheel and get behind the camera! Hhehe..

This Accord coupe was parked right near where I live. Oh I love these cars! So sleek!

Thank you for your generous tip, Torqueguru. I made the mistake of using one of the pre-set modes in the camera (Panasonic DMC FZ8, 12x Leica zoom lens). In fact, being a novice, I have all along been hesitant to fiddle with the exposure value etc. I promise to experiment more from now on.

Mukul, Great panning shots. Gurus have spoken so no point in my comments.

Nice shot of the bike jump as well.

As for your single parked shots I feel they are a bit too glazed, sorry not sure of the PS name for that effect.
