Laying it over by 10delboy

Laying it over

That is a cracker. Chris

Fast

My vote as it caught my eye and you have caught the speed and it is sharp - so, good panning. However, for me, it doesn't benefit from the tight crop. Chris

Class act, class shot - and just as I thought motorsports was dying, a few shots come along! Chris

Finally...... by rickie

Finally......

Good to see this excellent shot, Rickie. I was wondering recently, as you do, whether motorsports had all but died on the site; only a few shots now and very few from the road-racing fraternity. I have not attended as many events this year so I am hardly helping things. Chris

The Anglo American by javam

The Anglo American

I think it's fair to say you have these well and truly sorted. Excellent shot, I can even see the pilot's eyes! One question if I may, do you pan your shot or do you allow the aircraft to move across your frame and shoot? From your shutter speed I would guess at panning but my shots can be hit and miss. Your last 3 shots have been spot on. The weather wasn't the best for you but `i think the sky adds to the drama. Chris

A wonderful set of photos. I would have given the award for V1 alone. Chris

Building Steam by chris-p

Building Steam

Very well observed. I do like the first shot - a lot, tremendous atmosphere and memories of trying to get into Crewe engine sheds in the 60s - with some success - and they always looked murky even in the daytime. But the reflection of the porter or guard in the second, along with the young lad in the carriage in the third, are beautifully observed. Great stuff. Chris

One Knight Many Horses (2015)

Excellent, perfectly caught with movement in the wheels and it looks great in Black and White; an award for this from me. I missed the first two but will have a look. I really must get to Goodwood one day. Chris

Agility Dog by cuffit

Agility Dog

Thanks for the votes and comments, much appreciated; I am glad the shot caught your eye(s). Leadsman and Relic, it was a bit hit and miss as the but glad to get this one, the shooting angle was a little high due to the fence to keep the dogs in! I was a little way away and that helped lower the angle - great eyes though as you say. Chris

Wow, you don't see many of these. Well taken and a brave shot if it was taken with a wide-angle and close!!

A Soldier Returns by cuffit

A Soldier Returns

Peekay, Split, thank you for your comments, it was kind of you to comment and vote.

Split, you are right, I had to adjust the distortion of the wide angle and went for the vertical tower over the dead straight horizontal but, on reflection, I agree that the horizon is too far out of line too. I may have another go in a while when this one fades in the memory and darken it a bit as well.

Thanks to all who voted.

Tight Turn by cuffit

Tight Turn

Don, thanks for your comment - you are quite right, wheel movement would have been nice but with his speed, the light changing every minute or less (mostly very bright to slightly less bright!) I opted for a higher shutter speed. I opened my comments with the admission Smile. There is plenty of crud at the back though!

Thanks also to any who voted - if you pop back.

Start Sign by cuffit

Start Sign

Reg, thanks for your comment and vote - reverse humour! I was actually using the starter to set the focus for my first shot at the start of the motocross race. The the two lovely women then walked onto the track to hold up the countdown boards for the riders (who I hope were concentrating on the boards!). I thought mentioning the sign rather than the glamorous women was worth a go.

Also, to any who voted and popped back - many thanks

Clipper Albert Docks  Liverpool by gunner44

Clipper Albert Docks Liverpool

Gunner44, you have put yourself in a very good position for this shot but, as has been said, it is not in focus. Of course we were not there and you may have only a minute to have a go at it. If you were without a tripod, I might have used a camera bag, the lifebuoy as a rest or the dock itself - or whatever might have been to hand. The 10-20 gives you plenty of depth of field. Also, F22 is a very small aperture and halving that might have given you more of a chance hand-held - but it would still have been a difficult shot. Chris

Tuscan light.

A lovely shot, we are off to Tuscany in September; we can only hope for light as good. Chris

St Peter's Basilica by marshfam19

St Peter's Basilica

I took the same photo in the 70s while fortunate enough to work in Italy for several months (the queues were nowhere near as bad as they are today and there was greater access); however, yours is so much better! You have done well to keep everything steady at a 1/15 of a second.

Sunshine and Valor by IainHamer

Sunshine and Valor

Great shot, it hardly seems possible that they could be anchored there. There must be quite a shelf beyond the pier or perhaps the ship's draft is less than we might think. Makes you think. Cracking colour, scale and composition. Chris

Chinga, many thanks for your kind comments and to all those who took time to look and vote - much appreciated. Chris
