Default 2008 Philip Island MotoGP

I know they are late, but i finally got some spare time (The time i really should have been sleeping) and got through some of my MotoGP photos from the weekend







Im still undecided on the treatment i gave this photo, i love the way the Ducati and the Number one have come up in the shot though


An Idea of the Steepness of Lukey Heights




I love how you can see Lorenzo's eyes in this shot




More Here in the http://drmphotography.net/?page_id=105

C&C appreciated and encouraged on all photos, not just the shots here, be as harsh as you like!

Good stuff - real shame about the shadows in #1, that would be an awesome shot if you can get rid of them

Nice work. I like the Ducati shot, I think it works well IMO. I agree with Big Ant in regards to removing the shadow on the 1st Doc shot and might even be worth a try on the Stoner shot also. Liked the website. Hope that's harsh enough!

I dont' know if you've seen this set, but I think you'd agree the difference in the impact of the pictures are significant.

Taken at the same event no less.

An Amazing Set, and there is more punch to those photos, they also have some angles ill never achieve without accreditation, i had enough trouble getting the 100-400 into the track let along getting accreditation for such an event, but thanks for the link Having shot all these from general admission areas and competed for space with plenty of other people trying to shoot as well, ill give it another go when i get a chance to head back, but it was my first attempt at shooting bikes as well as being my first real outing with the 100-400. I would have loved to have been on the other side of the fence with a prime of some sort just to see what i could have achieved, but maybe another event

lol I was looking at a photo before and noticed at least 3 grey lenses in the background.... I was surprised there were so many people with fairly decent DSLR's at the track with big lenses

Saturday was the day i shot the most, got a few good ones Friday too.

I shot Sunday, mainly because that was the reason i was there, but no where near as many as i had on the previous two days, will throw up Friday and Sunday photos tonight, i got some ok ones on Sunday on the small victory lap that Stoner had.

I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend, Def heading back!

I would have prefered this one back further in the frame, but this is what i got....


I quite like this shot and the disappointment that the riders body language gives off
