Always try to position yourself with the light (sun) at your back. That way you will not have dark faces or subjects.

The rest looks ok. But 2 things.

1. Show movement
2. Show movement

You can get this with a slower shutter speed and panning.   :thumleft:

Thanks, it's impossible to move around as you are confined to the track run off, thus was shooting into the sun whole time :/
