View Full Version : Rally New Zealand 2008 - WRC and PWRC cars
6th of September 2008 (Sat), 05:11
Here are some of my photos from Rally New Zealand. All photos were taken with a Canon 20D.
The first one is the Citroen C4 of Dani Sordo...
I played around with my EF-S 10-22mm lens, and here are three similar photos. The first one is Dani Sordo again, then two photos of the Ford Focus RS WRC 07's of Jari-Matti Latvala and Henning Solberg...
Another wide-angle, this time Petter Solberg in the Subaru Impreza WRC 2008...
The Ford Focus of Matthew Wilson...
and finally a couple of the PWRC cars, the Subaru Imprezas of Ken Block and Naren Kumar (I know they could have done with slower shutter speeds, but I like them!)...

Wow...I gotta get some wide angle shot going at WRC. I normaly just use my 400 which is fairly tight. My kit lens dont really cut it in close quarters...great shots :)

I still find it ironic where the organisers dictate the small areas to stand in, and quite often it's on the outside of a bend

Great shots with some nice angles. Love the first shot with the cowering fans :)

Those are excellent! As a huge fan of rallying those really compliment the sport, was it worth while watching?

Great shots. I like the first one with the photogs on background. Great WA shots of Latvala and Solberg. Dont see this type of pics too often

Awesome shots! Love the feeling of motion in them and the not so usual angles in 2,3 and 4.

Thanks for all the good comments. I'm glad you all liked the wide-angles; it was a bit of an experiment!. I had a bit of difficulty choosing which ones to put in as I took quite a few. If you would like to see more, my Rally New Zealand photos are at...
(I still need to put some captions on them).

For what it's worth, I think 2,3 and 4 a very saleable shots... might be worth contacting some publications?
