From a great morning last Saturday with Andy Graves (Hailwood) Thanks Andy for a great day, and hope the van is now fixed.
I was unsure about uploading this as my last mono died without trace, and this will no doubt go the same way. Particularly uploading this early on Sunday (going out shortly and evening Internet speed on Sunday is impossible). I just hope this appears as well on the web as it does in print. Yes theres noise (or atmosphere ), this almost disappears in the print.
To say this was a difficult exposure is an understatement, I couldn't increase the DOF anymore and get a sharp image where it matters. Anyone who knows Grosmont this is the outside inspection pit - and yes I did get down and dirty for this - and its very dark in there!
ISO 4000 (yes not 400, one of the main reasons I upgraded from the D300)
F6.3 (max 5.7 @ this range according to EXIF)
All comments welcome (and I do mean all comments) - but please look at the large version if you get chance.
Whoops just realized I forgot to turn on the signature and title on when I finished my final round of sharpening, oh well
