Its a very good action shot thats a little tight in the frame. Though its hard to do, try to leave some space in front of the car when shooting if you can, it make for a more dynamic shot with space for the car to move into.

Mono is a good choice too. Theres some glare on the bonnet and windscreen, but not enough to spoil the shot.

It can be quite a bit sharpener, with a little more contrast, - remember to check your re sized image for sharpness before uploading.


Ive loaded a mod with sharpening; toned down highlights; made more room at the right and top of the car to place it as suggested. I did some quick cloning, but if you spend a little time you will get a better result.




Hope this helps,



regards



Willie

Willie has covered it quite comprehensively. Just a wee extra niggle from me...you've rightly used quite a fast speed, but as it's presumably slowed down on a bend it's frozen in time with no real sense of movement. The only thing that says that it's not possibly just parked there is the different weight on the two wheels. A bit of panning to give some motion blur in the background may have helped to get it moving while keeping the car sharp

Hi Moe,
Have to agree with above, yet it is quite a tricky subject to get right, I feel you've done well.
