I really like the second shot... It may look "simple", but it is so much more than "just a tight shot of a car". Perfect example of using an off-center composition (notice, the car is a the bottom left side of the frame, even has a little more room to drive out-into), non-distracting and interesting backgrounds (the red dirt tells the whole story of Road Atlanta), and slower shutter speeds (notice the wheels aren't parked)... very nicely done!

I like the vertical shot of the esses (#5), again great composition... the DOF is also great. The light is just perfect as well, so warm... it highlights the yellow very nicely. #7 is great as well, lots of motion. I really like #8 as well, great panning job on that one... lots of motion in the wheels/background, yet a sharp car - not easy when they are moving away at 3/4.

Nothing less than expected, very well done! See you at Laguna!

I really like the curb hopping action on #3. They are all very well done though.

I really like the compostion in #5, excellent shot. #7 is pretty neat in that the 31 is sharp while the rest of the car is not. I like the feel of motion in that shot. Thanks for sharing these here JT.
