Default Croft...another thread from the BARC meeting...

After suffering major failures to both my old PC and not so old laptop in the last month or so, i thought i'd be late posting these but it seems everyone else has been sleeping too

A bit of BARC formula Renault. A pan for those that like such things....



Sideways Caterham. Wake me up when they've finished please...



The Legends are always good fun..



2 for the price of one !



You can't beat a bit of Pick-up Truck racing.



Breathe in mate, he's coming through !



C&C appreciated as always. I'm on a brand new PC and haven't calibrated the monitor properly as yet so i have no idea how the colours look. The images have had no PP other than resize and a bit of sharpening here & there.

I kept my eyes peeled for you over the weekend, but never spotted you yet .

Sorry to hear about your PC's Geoff. Reminds me that I have some backing up to do .

Nice selection of pictures. The Formula Renault shot is a nice angle, and gives a fairly clean background. Will be a nice shot with a big crowd on the banking in the background.

The second Legends shot is also nice. Might just have to give that angle a go myself.

Pick of the bunch for me is the first of the two Pickup Truck shots. Personally, I might have gone slightly (and I mean slightly) wider, but it is a great angle to show some close racing. I like that shot a lot.

I shot the first two laps of that Caterham race, and then spent the rest of the time making sure that the onions didn't fall out my cheeseburger and I didn't spill my bottle of pop

Cheers,

Simon.

Yup the legend is really nice, as were the cheeseburgers.

I spotted yourself and Ian from the opposite side of the track at one point but i was feeling lazy . I bumped into KevB and his brother over at Sunny out on Sunday afternoon though. Given the choice between Caterhams and a Burger i'd go for indigestion every time

Fortunately i didn't lose anything when the PC's failed. I stick all my RAW's on a Portable HD as soon as i get home from a day out with the camera. I also have a mega DVD burning session once a month as added security.

Thanks for the comments
