Alwyn,

Some EXCELLENT stuff, there! I'll make comments underneath.

Oh boy, this one is near and dear to me! However: I believe I have an unfair advantage in this category as I have been fortunate enough to have had a media pass to a couple of Historic Racing events in the Vancouver and Seattle area. Because of this I will only be submitting EXHIBIT images.

Some random examples:

Nice image! Is this a Porsche?

Looks like a Lotus, to me! Admittedly, my knowledge of race cars is certainly FAR from complete! I like these guys, though!

LOVE the spray coming up off the tires!

THIS one almost seems like a selective-color processing was applied with that near-monotone background and the bright-red car and white helmet!

Ah, a nice closeup!

Oops, too close....

Just a TAD too close! Too bad the orange Mustang was so close, as well, and you couldn't better, more easily isolate the rear two cars more!

Nice older 'Stang!

Another beautiful, somewhat older car, I think!

A different era of cars! Man, what it would be like to drive one of these for JUST a few laps! So close to the tarmac, and such speeds!

A work of art, that engine!

Thanks, Alwyn! Wonderful shots, these are! And I JUST shot motocross for the first time, though I've wanted to shoot motorsports for a while, now! I'd LOVE to get into Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX, not too far from me! May have to see if I can work an angle or three on that...

Thanks for sharing!

Sam
