OK peoples,

Now that you've looked, you have to play...haha

I'm looking for some opinions.
I need to narrow down these eight pics to just two.

I have my own thoughts, just wanting some extra independent, non biased input to see what others think.

There's no right or wrong.

Which two would you keep.

If you wish to comment, go for it.

There's no question in my mind - #3 and #6. Those two show the action almost as if they were videos. All the rest are a bit on the static-looking side to me.

For me... toss up on 4 or 6. I like 4 because it shows more of the car body and has a shadow (unlike 5 which looks like it's floating :p). I like 6 because the dust conveys action.

AND

8 - Flames! :cool:

An extremely interesting - and probably very unplanned - thing about image #3 is what the out-of-focus foreground grasses do for the image. Two of the blur streaks actually look like they are tire tracks in the air. That couldn't have worked out any better.

Thanks all -
That seems pretty definitive - and not quite what I was expecting.
Anyone else want to weigh in.

I like 1 best, too close a call for a second shot.
