    Tell me you are not jealous of somebody who can casually bang a $10,000 lens on the ground,

    We are talking F1 here not Indy Cars but that could start a whole Europe vs USA argument.
    Yes I will post some pictures. I've got about 220 to get through and see what is any good.

    Here's the camera policy for the Scottrade Center, our NHL and college basketball building in St. Louis, MO...

    "CAMERAS AND VIDEOS
    Camera policies vary by event, are determined solely at the discretion of the show and are subject to change without notice. As of January 1, 2006, our new camera policy defines professional lens cameras as a camera with a lens greater than 200 mm. A camera with a lens greater than 200 mm will never be allowed at Scottrade Center. Cameras with a detachable lens are prohibited. For most concerts, still, digital and video cameras are prohibited. For Blues games, most other sporting events and family shows, still cameras are permitted but video cameras are prohibited. Unauthorized or prohibited photography of an event may result in film or videotape being confiscated by show representatives. In all cases, the resale of photography or video is strictly prohibited. For details regarding the camera policy for a specific event, please call 314-622-5400."

    Contrast this with Busch Stadium, home of the World Champion Cardinals (!!!...sorry)

    "Cameras/Video Equipment
    Both still and video cameras are allowed in Busch Stadium, as long as they do not obstruct another guest's view. Credentialed professional news crews/cameras are only allowed on the concourses and are not to film any game action unless given permission by the Cardinals."

    I have NEVER been hassled by ushers for shooting pictures at Busch, even with my 80-200 f2.8 on a good monopod.

    I caught some of the practice on the SPEED Channel last night. And though some may not care for Indy/Champ cars, I'm looking forward to taking photos of the Las Vegas Grand Prix next month, especially since that race will run through downtown Las Vegas.

    See the conflict? The lens doesn't even have to be "greater than 200 mm" if it is detachable--that would include a dSLR with a 10.5mm for that matter.

    Shouldn't we be trying to keep this thread for posting IMAGES? That was the original purpose after all.
    Surely discussions about whether or not you are allowed to take photos should be on their own thread?

    Ummm, I am well aware what F1 is, I assume you know Michael Andretti raced F1 for a year? I guess since I am "USA" I dont know what F1 is. Sorry I asked, nevermind. I'll stick to my "Indy Cars"

    Kellie, I prefer the color more in this instance. I am glad to see you are posting here, you take very lovely pictures!

    I agree. Very nice picture Kellie. Her eyes really come out great in both the coloured version and the black and white.

    I also like the coloured version better than the black and white version. I think the reason for that is that in your conversion the blurred background is too smooth. In the coloured version you can clearly distinct your daughters clothes with the floor, while in the black and white the division between these parts is much less apparant. In that way you see less clearly that your daughter is lying on the ground.

    Here's an attempt at converting your image. I hope you don't mind me posting it, if you do I'll remove it.

    I converted it with a channel mixer and the following settings:
    red channel: 10%
    green channel 20%
    blue channel: 70%
    You can do this in photoshop or almost any other image editor. I think using these settings, the conversion is a bit better.

    Thanks for the compliments.

    Prospero - I see what mean about the background and that conversion does look better. (and I don't mind you posting it)
