    I love pics made from, and of, cars in motion.

    I agree with McReis, a bit of fill flash would've made it brilliant, but still a great shot Rob!

    Both cars holding steady, a steady pair of hands, and a fast shutter I imagine.

    These are from a local Canberra shooter I know:

    Oh, and no sideways means no vote...

    IMHO I think the lighting is perfect, since you can still see all the contours down the driver side. It might be a difference in monitor settings too. Just a thought.

    My sideways action photos became a joke here because, for months, I have always entered pics of different cars, in different places, going sideways. Apparently that is boring for some.

    I arranged that personally with Jim on Friday. I knew when he would be leaving, so we stuck around Moroso until then. He cooperated real nice down the Beeline, and it thankfully didn't end up like a Princess Diana incident. My buddy was driving our rental Jeep, so I got shots out the back and out the side. Lots more shots of it to come next week. There will be a report on the Cavallino Classic, and the Palm Beach Supercar Weekend next week when W returns from the french fluffy stuff.

    Not all my criticism is bad

    I don't mean you are saying it's a bad photo. I just think the rarity of the subject ahs nothing to do with the quality of the shot. If it's a good photo it's because it's well done. I see no rarity on shooting a car in movement, and since the car is not what we're voting for...
