I'm especially proud of how this turned out. It's a photo of Randy's 6 race car from the top of the hill during his practice lap at Lime Rock Park this past weekend. I made a wallpaper of it for you all to enjoy:[/b]
Nice pic, AND as a bonus, fellow SCCA corner workers to boot! :yesnod:

Thanks! Glad you guys enjoy it as much as I do.

If and when possible, I try to incorporate people into my compositions from these events be it the drivers, the fans, the corner workers, the crew, etc. I always try to show the aspect of these events that show the triumvirate of man, machine, and mettle.

Taken with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 w/ Leica Lens
focal length - 45mm
F - 4.5
Exposure time - 1/100s
ISO 80
metering mode - pattern ( not high speed)
shutter priority
zero exposure compensation
Cleaned up via GIMP by a friend (leveled it out a bit, played around to bring out more colors, and sharpened a bit, but the background blur is original)

Isn't that the new '07 grill? I'm just guessing though..[/b]
actually 2006-2007 front bumper/grill. It's just the regular 6 sport bumper, not the Speed6

Sweeet - tried the same thing with ye 'ol Powershot P80...not so successful though :hoho:[/b]
Dude, nice vantage point. Mosport, I presume? God, I hope my schedule works out so that I can make it out there.

Anyways, I have to confess. I'm still an amateur. That photo of Randy's 6 was a lucky shot that afternoon. Damned near filled up a 1 gig mem card trying to get it, which translates to 380-something attempts.

Yep - if you walk south...er...maybe it's east...anyway, down the Andretti straight, on the outside of the track, there is a really nice dirt path through the woods.

It's like walking through a park with 600bhp race cars screaming past you.

There is a small berm along the trail, just before the last uphill section of the straight-away. If you climb up on the berm, the marshalls can't see you and you're FEET from the armco...just don't slip or you'll be DB9-R pizza :yesnod:

I must have sat there for 20 minutes, trying to time the stupid delay with the P80's shutter. Just before breaking through those trees, they would shift into 6th, which must be 150mph-ish...finally got it timed right after about 15 laps!

The Mosport race is August 24th-26th...the more the merrier!!

These are a little old... But whatever... They're probably one of the best "amateur" photos I've ever seen. These were taken by a buddy of mine. So these are only 1024x681 but the originals are 3008x2000...


ENJOY!!
