Excellent timing and anticipation. Only crit is the DoF is too deep as there is a little too much detail in the background. Worth a click nonetheless for a good motorsport shot.

Its a well timed action shot with a great sense of speed and movement.

It can benefit with a little more sharpening (remember to sharpen after you re size for the web), and also a touch more contrast as in the mod.

For decent background blur you would have needed to use a more expensive piece of glass with a larger max aperture than the one you used, but I have loaded a mod with some blurring as an example.

Hope this is helpful

Excellent shot,i used to do Motorsports photography years ago(80's) and i always used to burn in the front of the car when printing to reduce the effect of glare from the sky.It's even easier now with image editing software.I have posted a mod hope you think it's an improvement,i've also chpped a little off the left too.

Good effort, I like it. Nicely timed and well worth the effort. Possibly a touch of extra sharpening just on the car and darken the light object on the left a bit by burning in.
