Hello all,

Just got back from a very wet and cold Silverstone today for the Superleague Formula race meeting. Which included, "dutch supercar challenge" Grand Prix Masters" World Sports car masters" "Speed series" "Caterham R300 Superlights" "FIA-CIK superkarts"

Shot taken in the afternoon practice for the V12 superleague cars! These beasts have a Ferrari F1 chassis" And a V12 engine that provides to much power for what they are.

The rain was bad enough to aquaplane most of the cars off the circuit. I had just moved from were I took this and two spun off into the gravel infront of me Sad

Anyway, thanks for looking and I will be back their tomorrow and Sunday for more action Grin

PS: the shot on here doesn't look as good as my larger file which I love Grin

A very nice shot taken in what looks like very difficult conditions. I like this alot as you have the bright colours of the car contrasting nicely with what looks like a dismal day.

You also have plenty of drama in all that spray which even if the werent going very faster because of the conditions makes it look like there is speed.

What I like the most and am most impressed with is that you have captured some raindrop splashes in the foreground. The water on the track as then made the last thing possible to make the shot and that is the distorted reflection.

Excellent take

Ian

A cracking shot in what looks like extremely difficult weather conditions for both the driver and the photographer

A great shot Scott, especially given the conditions.
Just for once though, I think I can improve it slightly and it's not often you hear me say that!
A slight tweak in shadows/highlights brings out the red and white a little whilst retaining all the greyness elsewhere and a slight push with contrast makes the car stand out slightly more.
Just my opinion. Hope you don't mind.

This is a fantastic shot, especially ion what look like torrential rain. This shot captures so much drama and action with the spray from the tyres. Superb shot.

Thanks Jester,

I sort of agree with you, but this was straight from the camera, didn't really want to do anything to it. Ill have a go and see what it looks like.

Thanks
Scott

I know you rarely modify your images Scott. It's not as if they need it.
I rarely comment on any images unless I feel there's something to say and in the case of yours, that's unusual. In my case, no comment is a good comment!
I always vote though.
Jester.

Looks like a really good capture Scott. Thruxton was pretty much the same weatherwise yesterday.
