Smoking Hamilton

By blackett  
Lewis Hamilton brakes extremely hard in to the Premiere Variante at Monza during qualifying. His brakes front and rear glow as his front wheel locks on the kerbing which provides less grip than the track itself. Although a win didn't come during the weekend, it was enough to seal the championship. 1/125th at F8. I hope you like it. IanSmile

Second vaughar comments, I too would like to see the large version, although this looks good.

Nice work.

Many thanks for the comments. I am not keen on joining e2 because of the costs involved. This shot is not actually pin sharp, the shot immediately after is sharper as the car is off the serated kerb. However, the next shot doesn't have the smoke or such a glow on the brakes. So you have to put up with this oneSmile Ian.
