Black 5s at Harringworth by cuffit

Black 5s at Harringworth

Andy, Ray and Dave, thanks for taking the time to comment and thanks to all for the votes; I am not currently an e2 member so no longer can tell who has kindly voted.

Andy, it is nice to know that the photo brought back some memories - probably the first time I have managed to do that here! I watched these engines in the 60s but, of course, spurned them for the more glamorous Jubilee Class - and dreamed of seeing A4 Pacifics and the like on the East Coast, if we ever went there. My grandad was a signalman and station master on the Great Western Railway and I spent visits to his home waiting for the Castle and Hall class to steam past. It is great to see many of them still running and a tribute to all those that have helped that happen.

Once again you have managed to get the 'eyes' clearly; makes all the difference. Sharp as a tack as well. Chris

Thanks to all who voted for this photo, it is appreciated.

Phil, good to see at Cadder's Hill. The shot above was taken late morning when still dull, have some brighter ones from the afternoon - taken in much the same spots as you! Chris

BSB Croft 2005

Your landscapes are superb but your motorsports pics with a 10D goes to show that it is technique rather than the camera that is important! I have not been to Croft but you appear to have got really close. All well composed and pin sharp. Excellent. Chris

Velocity by TimMunsey


Tim, I like this photo. I agree that Cadwell is a lovely race track but I find it quite challenging; I think you have done really well with this shot with your different take on the 'Mountain' shot. Was this the Auto 66 meeting? I am sure I saw you there (not many photographers on that day) and, perhaps, also at the sand-racing event at Mablethorpe. I like your shot from that meeting as well.

Still looking by rickie

Still looking

A cracking shot - version 2 for me; was this taken at Brands on the bend before the long straight beyond the bridge? The depth of field and focus are spot on. Did you allow the bike to move into the frame and allow the shutter speed to freeze the action, or did you pan? I have yet to get one so sharp I have to say; hope to try harder this season! Chris

Sunset Orange by celestun

Sunset Orange

Great to see you back with your marvellous photos of butterflies. Disappointing for me though, as having the same combination of kit that you took this shot with now means there is no excuse for me not to achieve similar excellence; however, my 100mm lens doesn't have USM so that could be the reason for my failuresWink. Look forward to seeing more. Chris

The Runner by Gearoidmuar

The Runner

I spent quite a bit of time looking at this photo and it has my vote. I really like the contrasty style, the clarity and the square composition which all show the effort and concentration of the runner; the black and white make it all the more powerful. Having said that, I wanted to see more of her face. I know much depends on whether you had that opportunity or whether this was your only chance of a shot at the moment you had to take it, but I think it would be even stronger for it. Still a good photo though. Chris

Lincoln Cathedral by Neil_Jackson

Lincoln Cathedral

Given all the physical distractions surrounding it, I have never done very well at trying to photograph this cathedral from a distance; I think this is a very good shot. I would only add that just a bit more space at the top to see the very top of the cathedral, at the expense of the foot of the photo, would have topped off (if you'll pardon the expression) your photo.

Lights Ablaze by martin.w

Lights Ablaze

A real eye catcher. Interestingly, I love to include the crowd as well to set the context of the event or a bit of atmosphere, but entered into a competition, such a background is usually viewed as a distraction. Good shot.

Great shot, captures the power of the aircraft in every respect. Late vote but haven't ploughed through the pages for a while. Chris

Grass track racer. by 10delboy

Grass track racer.

Nicely panned, it is devilishly difficult to cut out the clutter behind the riders and outfits at these meetings and you have the subject spot on. I found myself going as low as 1/30th to blur the backgrounds but with lower strike rate. Good shot. Chris

Brügge, Old city by aldasack1957

Brügge, Old city

Very good and gets my vote. I wonder though if a bit more space top and bottom might have made it even more powerful; I guess it may have all depending on the position you found yourself in. Chris

Missing the gate by 10delboy

Missing the gate

What a fantastic shot. Sharp and the water droplets around the canoe add to the action. Although I am not good at Photoshop myself, I wonder if you and thought of blurring the top left area which does draw the eye. A stunning shot nonetheless. Chris

Guy Martin by EOS_fan

Guy Martin

Great shot and as crisp as you like and I know the bend! Always good to see Guy Martin and his wise choice of visor reveals that 'stare of concentration' - does he ever blink!? I wonder though if a slightly slower shutter speed might have given a hint of speed blur in the tyre even though the action is in the angle of lean and the water from the tyre - a really minor point really as I like the shot.

It threw it down last time I was there earlier this year and the weather forecast predicted more of the same so I didn't make the trip this time. Even so, your photo above is far better than anything I managed from the same place! Chris

An excellent photo - I wonder if my vote might just nudge you toward the magic 30; it is worth it. Chris

TF funny car by colin beeley

TF funny car

Good shot, looks pretty difficult to capture these guys as I recall they move at fearsome speed right from the off. Were you part of the crowd - panning a challenge? I like the composition which shows off the event well - intersting to see the media photographers getting close! Chris

Thank you all for your support. Mike, it is Druids - well spotted despite the blur and induced incline! Chris

Jason O'Halloran by cuffit

Jason O'Halloran

Thanks for the coments and votes; much Appreciated. Colin I did think about taking the top third out but then it becomes very much like all the other shots taken at the same point as we all try and avoid the high mesh fences, the TV advert boards and other obstacles etc. Technically, it would make for a better shot and the bike would appear bigger in the frame - no distractions for club judges to home in on, but then not that exciting either. The top bit doesn't make it any more exciting so I have to agree with you; it just seems a bit different and a bit more pleasing to me. Anyway, I have a few more without the white bits and will post one soon. Chris

Sorry Mr Bird....... by brownstonechip

Sorry Mr Bird.......

You have a knack of being in the right place at the right time! I understand that Mr Bird saw a few of his bikes go down the road at this event and I amnot sure he is always in the best of humour as it is! I wouldn't have liked to have been the one to tell him - or that close when he heard! Chris
