hey POTNers a bit late after the event but just now getting around to sharing 8 here.

but Hey I have no deadlines : ) Still a unpaid behind the ropes shooting through photo holes 20 feet away type of guy haha. Again would like to change that if any of you pro's out there like my looks at the action that want to give me a shot through your contacts. I would love and be grateful for that. just for once would love to have more negative space to work with.

So this was my first outing with my new 100-400L at a racetrack, I was composing rather tight on these shots for testing purposes to see how sharp it is in these situations. rather pleased and think I have a good copy of the lense.

here's 8 along with direct links to some others I liked.

Great shots. I know how you feel about being limited to spectator areas.

a different perspecitve can be had from behind the ropes...makes you work harder for good shots.

#1 would make a good ad, good space on the right for selling something.
#3 is so close to really cool, a touch earlier so the nose isn't clipped by the oof spectator.
#4, if it was sharp, it would be better.
#5 is too tight to me, needs to be a little wider like #7
#7 might be my pick of the group, good tight racing,

yeah on the different perspective part, its just I've been going to Mid Ohio for 20 years viewing races there, I had a GPS on my hip this day and I walked 10.8 miles by the end of the day. I got the same perspective as I've done for 20 years haha again would love to have access to the photo holes and in the pits to have more space. thanks Bud I try to look at every picture different, I try

thanks for the pic comments
yeah on #1 and selling something, I actually was going for the whole car but just caught up to this part of the car with the pan this time.. turned out cool specially if your a Michael Shank racing fan

yeah for sure on #3 being close to coolness and a possible print for me, if that guy in the red was'nt there.

yeah on #4 and the going away car not being sharp, I actually took a bunch of this spot with framing the car with the tree branches and I might have a sharp pic in the bunch have yet to get to the rest of the pics with post processing.

yeah on #5 being to tight, actually the front of the car is exactly where I framed it soo I did'nt have nothing to do but this boring crop, I wanted to tilt it a bit in LR but would have really lost the front of the car, but yeah no negative space here to work with, totally my bad at framing and panning it.

thanks on #7 and thanks for taking the CC time here
cheers
Steve
