Taken at the Renault World Series today this is the version of F1 car Alonso's took the world championship with being given a demo run. It was a lot faster than I expected and gave me and my Sigma a fair bit of trouble.

the plan was to catch the car going past the Renault Board. I was luck to capture the car far less anything else with the reactions of me and my camera. I may edit one later. Here is the shot as is with a mild crop

Taken at 270mm, f8, 1/1000 ISO 400.

Very sharp image of the car - and the sign behind conveys the sense of speed. I have difficulty shooting a ground squirrel, let alone a 200 mph car. Congratulations on this - it's awesome!

Thanks believe me I have about 20 with bits of a nose or tail or blur, and even one or two with no car at all Smile

Nice and sharp John. Did you try any panning shots ?? that would have given even more sense of movement.

well thought out John, but if you'd been panning at 1/1000th, you'd have had the car in shot every time and the option to press the shutter as you passed the sign. Least thats how I would have approached it. Then you'd just choose the sharpest / one with the best inclusion of 'RENAULT' in it.

One minor niggle would be cloning out that little slither of white, top left.
