    I try not too.

    Seriously there's lots of bloopers - the trick is to only show your best work I believe - even if it's just one or two.

    Nobody needs to know how bad we can all be.

    Those are pretty amazing shots. How long did it take to learn to do that? I like your honesty about leaving the bad ones on the cutting room floor. Out of interest, roughly how many shots would you expect to take to get each of those good results? Finally, did you get any sort of press access to the track or were you in amongst the crowd?

    Thanks again Lads.

    Stephen, motor sports are kind of a hobby - but I've had fifteen years pro experience in other photographic disciplines which I guess helps with the basics (particularly composition). I have around 2,000 images from the weekend of which roughly 25% will be thrown away immediately mainly due to camera shake from some of the more hopeful panning shots (ie; pushing the low shutter-speed which is quite hit and miss). I'll throw away a few more that are slightly soft from focus irregularities (I'm a fairly hard-marker here - I like crisp) and some becuse they just plain didn't work from a compositional sense.

    So about half would be 'keepers' (however you measure that), and maybe 50% of these will actually be 'final cuts' (many of a similar shot for instance trying to get the fuel burning out the tail-pipe - just pick the best).

    All these were from the GA area which makes it even harder generally (although this track isn't so hard on long lenses as say Phillip Island or Eastern Creek).

    Christian,

    While these are great photos, they are no better than your standard wedding or family shots. Perhaps one of your sons will get married at a track? "You may now kiss the bride's bumper at 200 km/hr!"

    You consistently raise the bar here.

    Thanks.

    None whatsoever - the V8 Supercar people were totally reasonable.
