OK, let me open this edition.

Flamethrower recut.


I've recut the last picture of the previous version. The previous I liked because the setting but it made the picture a bit flat, now the flames and red color of the car are more popping out.

Ah found the issue why 'photobucket' was ruining my colors. My browser (IE something) could not handle my color profile (adobeRGB). Now I've changed it to sRGB and that seems to work.

EK, first shot turned out very nice, as you already said for a 1/30 shutter. You must have a very steady hand and lots of panning practice. What kind of car is this, some sort of Mazda formula 3 car?

EK - Some cracking good images in here; loved the combination of the Lotus and Mini, and the pan of the single seater does come across exceptionally well. Take out for me though was the last one with the RX-7 and the Sports racer; loved the combination of the lead-in of the track to the cars and then up into the stands and layers caused by the seating. Probably a lucky combination but for me the whole thing works very well on more than one level.

Thanks for these and hope to see some more soon (I'm also off to Brands Hatch on Monday for this years Historic Festival so hopefully a real glut of images to come - the entrance list is just amazing.....)

Kind regards, Neil.

OK as promised I've edited my shots from the DTM (Deutsche Toeringwagen Meisterschaft, German salooncar championships) on the fantastic circuit of Zandvoort (F1 raced here till 1985). The track is situated in the Dunes near to Amsterdam which gives it a great athmosphere but due to the fences and commercial stuff a lousy place to take pictures. Only suitable actually for panning shots if you don't have a pass to get near the track.

So the following will all be panning shot, which I now reasonably master, but they get a bit boring in the end. So to get some extra tension in the shots I did some extreme cropping which (e.g. tilted or lots of air, which is beautifull in Holland). If you have more tips to get these type of shots more exciting please let me know.

All shot with an A700 using a 80-200APO or a 50mm F/1.4 at shutterspeeds between 1/80 to 1/125, iso100 and manual focus. Comments are ofcourse welcome.

1. High speed overtake in the Porsche supercup support series.


2. Porsche supercup winner from Holland (Jeroen Bleekemolen), ofcourse he has the home advantage but is a very reknown Porsche works driver.


3. F3 Euroseries support series, extreme crop to show the clouds.


4. Another F3 car with a slightly differend crop.


Then some pictures of the main series, the DTM. Don't get fooled by the saloon car looks, these are full racecars. They have a tubular frame with a big V8 4 liter engine producing around 490HP weighing a totall of around 1000kg. This year is a transition year for the new car set-up for next year which will consist of a carbon monocoque design. Next to Audi and Mercedes also BMW and maybe Seat will then enter the series.

5. Gravel excursion.


6. Scheider in the ABT audi car.


7. Suzie Stoddard, daughter of Paul who previous owned the Minardi F1 team and the Minardi USA CART team.


8. Red Bull is everywhere.


9. Chrome Mercedes.


10. Local hero Van der Zande with a badly tuned Mercedes (repost in which I updated the color profile and tweaked the colors slightly).


11. Maiden victory for Mike Rockenfeller in the Audi.

@paso144 - It's an Formula Atlantic, the fastest of the SCCA Formula classes. As far as steady hands, I only started shooting motor sports last year but I've shot match rifle and pistol since I was a kid. I've also been blessed with a good job and money to tune my equipment. I've settled in on the A700, Tokina AT-X Pro II 28-70 f2.6 - 2.8 and Minolta 80-200 f2.8 APO HS G, with a Tokina AT-X 100-300 f4 + Kenko DGX 1.4x TC for longer shots. I used to use a MinO 35-105 like you (I may yet replace it) but it got struck by some debris at a race (hazard of getting as close as I do) which scratched the lens.

I've also challenged myself to see how slow I can pan just so I can rub it in the noses of the canikon shooters at the track (what with all the fancy features of their cameras that are supposed to make it easy). I can get a few keepers at 1/20s but I'm still working on even slower. It also helps that I have my "special place", the apex of Turn 6, where the cars are less than 10 meters from me, or less, and stay parallel to me for several seconds.

@owenn01 - Thanks. I'm waiting with baited breath for yours. There's always cars I don't get to see in them. The shot with the Mazda and the Spec Racer Ford was actually more planned than you might think. As paso144 noted, panning gets a tad boring after a while so I've been trying to plan my shots to be more interesting.

I have a few more to post but Smugmug appears to be down at the moment so I'll do it tomorrow.

Regards,
EK

No 2 is a Holden Commodore. The V8 supercars are basically a Ford vs Holden (General Motors) event. In Australia, you're either a "Ford man" or a "Holden man", sort of like Canon vs Nikon. There's a great deal of rivalry between the teams and the racing is very good to watch. The cars have lots of grunt with lots of very close racing. The car belongs to Jamie Whincup. See his website http://www.jamiewhincup.com.au/" rel="nofollow - here .

Hi EK - Yes; I believe forced cooling for the driver - no a/c and temperatures get pretty high in there. Mind you, he also has the window open as well so it does look a little 'odd'... It may also be to cool other parts held in the passenger compartment of the vehicle as well - electronic boxes and even possibly piped to anyy rear diff's to help increase the cooling effect.

Nice image and unusual to see one of these racing - not a 'typical' GT racer over here in the UK!

Kind regards, Neil.

Hi Neil - an excellent set. The only thing I can suggest is to use a slightly slower shutter speed to see if you can get some blur in the wheels. This will accentuate the sense of motion. I like to go to the track an see how slow I can pan .

Fabulous car and it's good to see someone else out there that knows what this is! Unfortunately whilst a leader early on it suffered problems (this was a 2 hour 'Gentlemans Race') and retired on lap 23. I've more to come from this meeting so keep your eyes peeled!

Yep, that'd be the one. Great shot of a great car! And is that a Kiwi flag I spotted on it? (I'm an expat Aussie). It wasn't http://www.autointhenews.com/video-rod-millen-builds-worlds-coolest-driveway/" rel="nofollow - this Kiwi, was it?...

Hi Owen, Wow, that certainly is impressive! Perhaps if I'd realised early, like he presumably did, that to get the things I coveted I'd need to get into finance things may have been different. But then again, probably not - oh well... Did he get sideways in the Cyclone, like the shot on his website?

Hi EK,

Some really varied machinery buried in there - love the mix in the first 'waiting for the start'; BMW 2002 and a Porsche 914 along with a load of other interesting stuff, then some fine pit images as well. I suppose I should 'trade images' with some from the other weekend (so many still to go through..... ):

1. 'Bad Boy' Intimidating an Elan



2. TR4 leads MGB



3. Contrasts



4. Marcos 1800GT rounding Druids



5. Five Abreast!



Finally - quiz of the day (but no prizes!); do you or anyone know what this is...?

6. Mystery car



And no, for a start, it's not an MG Midget derivative either....

Thanks for the link as well; you know, I reckon if this isn't the same car then I'm Jenson Button. Looking at that image I do believe the 'tow' label is in the same place and as the image was taken at the Silverstone Hstoric Masters in 2010 then I think it's pretty much a cert...

Thanks. Tried that, couldn't get a good angle. This car (a Lola Mk I, I think) is only about a meter high. I had to go prone to get this shot. The sacrifices we make for our art.

Already more then a week no posts here so let me update the thread . Went to the MotoGP training at the Assen TT circuit last weekend. First made some panning shots of the riders hanging off in the ridiculous fast 'Ramshoek' corner and then checked out the famous 'Geert Timmer' corner before start/finish. Did an experiment with layering in photoshop so all comments are welcome. Most were shot with the 80-200APO and a few with the 100-400APO.

1. Current champion Lorenzo almost beside the bike.


2. Crashking DePuniet.


3. Hayden in front of his shadow.


4. Carl Crutchlow on the satelite Yamaha.


5. Lorenzo showing some more speed.


6. Mister 'bad attitude' Simoncelli, crashking to be?


7. Some other guy on a Ducati .


8. Packed circuit even on qualifying day (overview GT corner).


9. Not the sharpest picture but a nice move and the crop is ok.


10. Experiment, Rossi through the GT corner.

@paso144,

Cracking series and made by the excellent combination of viewing point and panning technique - the latter is really first class given the speed of these machines and riders. I think the conditions were also difficult to manage and that is perhaps where i have a minor problem with these - they are very bright and lack an element of really deep blacks, even in the shadows, but I can live with that for the overall feeling of speed and fluidity that these convey so clearly.

Pick outs? #1 for the placement and for the presence of mind of Lorenzo to wear a clear face shield ( ), and the last one of the composite of Rossi through the corner; yes, it's been done before but this is a great example for the demonstration of the change ion direction and the fact these are so regularly spaced as well.

Fabulous set and I hope the racing was worth it (I have it recorded but haven't had chance to watch it yet!).

Thanks for sharing these and kind regards, Neil.

@Neill,

Thanks for the positive comment on my set. You actually nailed exactly the issues I have with this set. The picture ares to bright and lack depth. I've managed to tune up de bikes and riders by adding contrast and saturation but still the track, curbs and grass are a bit washed to my opinion. Circumstances for sure were not easy with intens sunlight from the left upper corner. Since I'm not able to walk the track within the fences I need to pick a spot on the grandstands and that will bring compromises, like sun and the slightly to heigh position (you can't see Lorenzo's eyes). Also lenses with 'state of art coatings' would probably help but these are out of budget and I think the 80-200APO is still delivering.

@paso144,

Have you tried working these images in Curves at all? You may find that you have some additional flexibility to lighten/darken tones using this where contrast/saturation are perhaps cruder ways of getting what you want to achieve. Still great images though, especially so given the comments about positioning and lenses!

Kind regards, Neil.

@EK Starzinger, thanks for that tip. I don't have one of those and I think they might be pretty expensive at 72mm. I have a circular polarization which will give me 2 stops so I will give that a try next time. By the way I've fiddled around in PS with a not perfectly sharp pic of Rossi and found out that the posterizing option is quite fun. Also Rossi's blocked livery lends itself for it.

Cracking images, Frank - beautiful clarity to them; you must have had some lovely light at the meeting. The two Porsche's and the RS2000 are particularly nice (though I do have the equivalent of lens lust after the former....).

@EK - sorry about that; but at least it gives you a chance to lower those shutter speedds and practice that panning.. I like the Batmobile and nice to see it in Alpina White rather than some of the other, more vibrant, European colours we often see over here.

@modelman66 - nice capture of the Drifting and the Elvington images are something different - the second one is made slightly more interesting by the lift of the front wheel off the start line. I'm always amazed they manage to hold on....

Anyway, to keep the thread going, a few more Hillclimb images:

The weather did have its good points. We've had over 90 days of highs over 33C this summer. That's a bit much even for me, Neil. Anyhow, I'm hoping we'll be clear and cool for the Petit LeMans next weekend.

I did get a lot of panning practice though - looking at your posts I need it...

Hi EK,

Well, I've got to keep you on your toes I think! Really like 'The Pass' - nice feeling of the extra speed going up the inside of the orange Porsche; hope he made it! Shame you just clipped the back off the Yamaha shot though - nice angle to this one and looks pretty crisp in the rider area for sharpness, whilst still having plenty of movement blur.

@modelman66 - Some really good bike images in this set from you - the Kawasaki one is a cracking good shot and I do like the last from the following four images; good use of angle in the image and the panning has been well executed to give speed and sharpness just where it's warranted.

A couple of minor points - try and separate the images when you post them - makes it easier to split the images apart, especially if they all have grass in them! And also number the images as well - makes commenting on them so much easier for me and much more useful for you as well!

Thanks for the postings and kind regards, Neil.

Just to keep the ball rolling.... All from a recent Brands Hatch meeting and taken late in the day:

1. Joss Ronchetti's Lotus Sunbeam


A700; SAL18250; 1/60th sec; f/8.0; 75 mm; ISO 100; Hand-held

2. Approaching Druids


A700; SAL18250; 1/250th sec; f/8.0; 55 mm; ISO 100; Hand-held

3. Rounding Druids!


A700; SAL18250; 1/125th sec; f/8.0; 75 mm; ISO 100; Hand-held

4. Bill Richards - Mini Clubman


A700; SAL18250; 1/90th sec; f/8.0; 60 mm; ISO 100; Hand-held

5. Rounding Druids #2


A700; SAL18250; 1/90th sec; f/9.5; 85 mm; ISO 100; Hand-held

BTW - since these were taken I have heard that following the recent visit of the DTM Series to Brands and their safety concerns, significant catch fencing has now been installed on the run-up the hill from Paddock to Druids, so images such as #'s 2 and 4 will, I suspect, be almost impossible to achieve now. Glad to have made the most of it whilst it was available...

Kind regards, Neil.

Thanks Neil. I was a little bummed about the Yamaha shot too. That angle is hard to shoot. The bikes pass behind the fence around the corner marshall's hut and I've only a fraction of a second to get focus lock once they clear the obstruction before they're by me. Oh by the way, I rather like #2 with a play of reflections and shadows on the track.

Here's a few more.

@Jamal_PL: Very nice shot (and that comming from a Ducati fan). Already loved your MX shots but this one has a nice touch of speed and good composition. I think it's usable for Honda advertising. Also like the touch with the clear visor so you can see the concentration in the drivers eye.
