Brands Hatch truck racing

By zigga  
On a visit to Brands Hatch this weekend to see the truck racing I took a series of images which tried to capture the action, of which this one was my favourite. I tried to fill as much of the frame as I could and happy to have caught to smoke off the tyres as they came round the corner.

Its a very good action shot, nice exposure, capturing the tyre smoke is a bonus.

Getting in tight to capture the action is a normal urge, however if there was a little more space on the left, it would add to the sense that the trucks are moving in that direction. Its a small point, but makes a difference.

Ive uploaded a mod where Ive done this at the left and top, - faked in some more space, and in the process sharpened it overall.

Hope this helps,

Hi Willie,

Thanks for the mod. It's funny you should mention the space on the left as I took another photo (I think on the next lap) which does leave a little room on the left hand side. I've uploaded it as a mod, although it's not a mod, just to show you.

It's on an angle as well which I am not sure whether it works or not?! I'm a bit in 2 minds...

I like V2. The angle can add a touch of excitement,

Very good as presented. Tight crop ideal here. Just lift the contrast a bit.
