Im certainly not doubting you were there...But if you look at your own picture his right hand is on the brake, his head is up (MotoGP riders dont do that on the straight), The fairing has dived into the front mudguard meaning the front forks are fully loaded, combine this with the front tyre squishing nicely and looking flat and the arse end of the bike up in the air.....You Have a Braking Situation...Not a Flat Out run down the straightWink

I'm an avid fan of motorcycle racing and he's certainly braking very hard, it was all the things that Lawbert's spotted that made me click on this.
I'm not going to get into a dispute over his whereabouts on the straight although I'd expect to see this on the approach to a corner.
It was only qualifying though so perhaps he's slowing for another reason.

Well sorry to keep this thread going but how fast do you think these guys are doing past the start finish line at Jerez gee then being pedantic there is a corner. Maybe if you study the circuit you will see that after the straight you have a corner ..... But at the speeds these guys are going and blink you don't make the corner. Like. Stated not for argument but the picture is takenjust aced they cross the start finish line, but what do I know ....

I know Jerez very well......If you want to get some half tidy shots of tmw's race then sit where you were today and and drop the iso on your camera to lose that hideous chroma noise and just hope that you and and your kit can keep up with the actionWink

Well mr lewd bert you don't now Jerez as well as you want us to believe, as we weren't sat down as there arnt any stands where we were. By your constuctive critique you are an odious man who should get a life. People I now have stopped using this site because of jumped up little people like yourself who somehow think they are right even when they are sadly wrong , but you just show yourself for what you are.

If Honesty is Odius then so be it.....I am happy to be Odius but leaning on the honesty side of things!

If people leave the site beacause of honest comments...Then it really is thier problem and not mine.

I also think you will find that I have been nothing but polite in my critique on your photograph so maybe you should take on board constructive critique.

All the Best

well panned image with excellent colour capture and splendid detail. I don't ride a motor cycle but I can recognise an excellent motor cycling photographer.
