You did great for your first time. I was hooked too the first time I saw these guys. The course change this year made photography more difficult, as did the winds from the east (not typical here).
Thank you! Yeah it doesn't sound like too many people like the new layout lol For photography, it didn't seem to make sense either that they didn't initially allow you around the horseshoe. Are you going to be able to make it to FL?

the Aasbo angle is a bit much, but everything is pretty straight forward here. most are tack sharp, the colors and contrast seem pretty spot on so you're about 10 levels better than the typical fanboy drift photographer. only other thing I'd say is that I'd prefer to see all of both cars in shot 5.
Thank you! I didn't realize that angled shot had a name, it is a bit much I agree. Think I was trying to mix up the shots and that was one of them. I would've loved to get both cars in #5 too, pretty sure that was taken with the 300 so a little limited there. I was off on lens selection though. when I'd use the 70-200 for the closer stuff, the action happened further away. Then I'd switch and the action would be too close lol A learning experience, unfortunately I don't have 4 arms and 2 pairs of eyes
I have a few more on my blog site if you guys don't mind checking them out. I think the ones I'm so-so just don't seem to have that "pop" I see in others photos. I'm sure its a mixture of my lack experience and shooting around 1/40 sec without IS but maybe you guys can find other things I need to work on
