    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.

    This was taken at Sebring this March, and shows the Highcroft HPD passing the GT2 Corvette, entering turn 10. My username is Bullitt5435, the picture was taken March 19, 2011, and my camera is a Fuji finepix S5000, and the picture has not been edited in any way.

    cropping

    Hey Henke,

    You need to crop a bit more. The car is lost in the photo. IMHO it would be more interesting to see more of the car. In this case, the background doesn't tell much of a story, its all about just what the heck is that thing?

    regards

    I know that technically the shot is incorrect, but I was waiting along the road to be picked by Juniour after the Quail event, and I only had a 17-40 lens available. I know I can crop the shot, but this is how I saw it. The car is the Cunningham Le Mans Cadillac, aka Le Monstre.
    Edit: I was actually looking for a shot of several E-Type noses that I made earlier that day, with several Veyrons in the background. When I saw this one again , I thought, what the heck....
