Looks a little soft on the focus and a bit overexposed on the nose of the car but nicely framed.

Thanks Boyd.
It probably is a bit soft on focus but it was the first time I had used my D70 at a sporting event and was using the continuous focus mode. Perhaps I should have with hindsight focused manually on one part of the circuit and taken the shot at that point but there is always next time I go.
Also the image was a bit noisy and I don't think getting rid of the noise with elements 3 helped either.
I Cropped some of the image from the bottom of the photo but kept part of the white line on the outside of the track as I thought that helped with the framing.

One of my favourite corners, I've rode the GP circuit a few times on my bike and club is a nice flat out in 3rd knee on the deck corner.

The soft focus was due to camera shake not the AF, I use AF all the time for my bikes shots, but then again I do use a Canon camera... Smile Lol.

Nice shot.

Good shot eddie, it's not easy taking these shots i know i struggle too sometimes, and don't even get the whole of the car in so well done!

Any tony mine's a nikon, maybe that's where i'm going wrong LOL!

I like the motion effect too. Sharp in the right places, though Boyd did spot some slight problems. His dad was very picky you know...

Love the car, hate the white line at the bottom, it's too distracting. Try putting a frame around your picture instead. You can do this in photoshop. It makes a real difference. I've discovered it recently as you'll notice if you look at my portfolio. Keep up the good work, had a look at your other pics, Spent many anight at black tie masons events.Get more pics loaded. glen x
