Great pics of the GP. Where was this?

They were shot in Assen, NL last friday at the World Superbike meeting.

I got myself a TC 1.7 with VR 70 200. This got a focal lenght of
340mm f4.8, although with a pretty IQ loss. Your pics are of very
good quality (sharp). Did you sharpen them afterwards and PP?

These were shot with a D70, NEF, sharpening set to the lowest possible setting. Converted with Capture NX with default settings and edited in CSII. I only sharpened these after downsizing to 800px wide.

Last question, don't you miss the lenghts with 280mm? Do you crop
the pics regulary?

I always want more reach and therefore I have to crop regularly. But I do not want to lose more light and get extra softness. The 1.4x is ok, as long as you can find a good position to shoot from. Without it I always had to crop and could print only small.
