Some really interesting shots, though a little tight. You seem to have done well with the fence, it's only barely noticeable on the Massa shot.

It's awesome that you implement your style into these shots. I barely see any motorsport shots that have a sense of style and these do it amazingly. Thanks for sharing.

just goes to show you that it isn't always about sharp and compelte - these convey real emotion. I love the 1st one the most.

I'd have to agree with Chris for the most part. The first three appear to have already been subjected to a magazine editors crop cleaver... which would be ok if that were the case.

The last two, to my eye, are simply misses.

I guess I'm mixed about the first three. There are some elements I like. #1 is over stylized. #2 is just "meh." #3 I like.

I like the perspective of the first shot but I think it is a bit tight. The Camera tilt in the second doesn't work for me. I like the third. the background in the fourth takes away from the shot and the last one just is a miss.

thanks for sharing the shots.

Thanks for all the valuable feedback! It was a challenge shooting through the safety fencing and the lighting in itself. The framing is deliberate to give a different perspective on the race.

You have to realize that this is a night race with 1000W metal halide lamps all around the track.

I'm amazed that they came out as well as they did in those conditions

I'm curious how high you had to set the ISO


Feel free to use any photo's that I post for any purpose that I don't find offensive. I'd be honored to find my pics used on that world wide web thingy....

ISO alternated between 640 and 800. I was very concious of trying to achieve noise-free pictures in such lighting conditions, so I also bumped up the exposure to +2 EV!

While these type of shots aren't my cup of tea, I like the way you have used the conditions to create some interesting photos. Good work.


Cheers Alex.....

I'm another who likes your images. Far too many F1 images lack any sense of the photographers own identity, and I'd include mine in that category.

Magazine editors use their axe on images so they draw attention, is'nt that what photographs should be doing?

The Jarno Trulli shot is my least favourite. I feel the crop chopping off the front wheel feels wrong. I like the Nick Heidfeld shot. Although it's another tight crop, it seems to convey the closeness of a chasing driver. Great work.
