Here are some shots taken on Monday morning at Croft. It was the DDMC Easter Sprint and one or 2 pals of mine were competing.

The morning was the practice and was a very slow affair with plenty time to pop to the bacon buttie van and talk to other photographer.

I started near to where simon, Sunny Out,was which is usually a great place to photograph but there was not much excitement so the bacon buttie van lured me avay.

Once refules I ended up pearing thro a very large cap in the wire mesh fence. It was a great place to watch the cars but as you can see my composition is very poor having tyres and bolllard in every shot :( I stayed tho as it was a very entertaining place to be, see second thread (https://photography-on-the.net …php?p=3016831#p​ost3016831)

So here are the pics. BTW the Escort was very quick and spectacular

Well I don't think you need worry about the performance of your lens / camera combo Peter. Some very nicely exposed shots here. They maybe look a tad oversharpened, but the colours etc are spot on.

Cheers,

Simon

Looks promising Peter. It's a big old beast of a lens so just give it time.

I saw the white 911 being towed up the A1M on Sunday afternoon, i guessed he was heading for Croft. What a lovely lump of old metal :)

Yes, thats PSP. Its not very good at resizing tends to make them look a bit weird and I was feeling lazy. I normally use Photoshop

I would like to get to the point that I feel I don't need to sharpen at all. I sometimes wonder if we have become obsessed with sharpening?

Yes its the 2.8. Its a heavy bugger and takes a bit of getting used to compared to the f/4.
