First time doing rolling shots

Just recently got into photography and would like some feedback on these rolling shots I took last night.

Look good but to maximize blur youll have to speed up .

I think they look terrific, especially for a first effort.

I agree with Astheros, I think they'd look even better if the background was blurred by motion.

In order to do that, you've either got to speed up the cars, or slow down the shutter speed. Slowing down the shutter speed will have repercussions in other ways. You may have to close up the aperture or dial down the ISO in order to keep the car exposed well. Also, the lights from out of the frame that are reflecting off the car will start to look blurred as well, which you might not like.

But overall, I think they look nice.

Great for your first try. A good rule is to use shutter priority (TV) and set it to 1/the speed you're going. So 60mph is 1/60th of a second and adjust from there depending on the exposure and blur that you want.
