I'm guessing the first shot was the night practice session, the #20 was unable to finish the race on Saturday, plus, the sun was definitely not out at the end of the race!

Love # 5 as I know that no Tim-Bits were harmed in the creation of that photo.

# 6 makes you ask yourself what is he thinking about?

# 7 has so much sentimental value with it being his final race and going out with a win.


Your camera is alot smarter than the "M" Zealots would have you believe

JT great shots 1,3,8 are super. Love the super wide shots but maybe if the car was placed more to the right of the scene it would make it a bit better.

Sevan

Couple of caveats to that; First when the car was to the right of the frame, your eye drifted over to all of those wankers in that photo hole. See it? :)

Second... to me, the car is not "the story" in this shot... the car within the vista beyond it is really the story. It's an incredible sight.

Lastly.... this car is low enough in the frame, a little to the left or right isn't the deal breaker... it's not like it needs the "mythical" some place to drive into. LOL.

From a "rule of thirds" standpoint, it would have been nice to be a bit off center.. But I think if you saw them side by side, in this particular shot, it's a bit insignifcant.

Thanks,

JT
