    Hello again, No flowers today! About a month ago I went to Oulton park and photographed the following. It was only my second trip back to Oulton Park since early last year shooting the BTTC. since then I have only been to the Formula 1 GP in July.

    I was disapointed with the results from the previous time (BTTC) I was not sucessful in capturing the sense of speed (I was only starting out back then) I did post them here and I was told that they just looked like static objects (and you were right, they did)

    So here are some ones taken recently with more thought (The weather was terrible so shooting conditions were not great and I was very tired but I was semi pleased with what I came back with)

    A few that I have selected suffer from too much shallow depth of field ( I have included these for that purpose to show others.. To be honest I quite like the effect so I will not be discarding of those)

    A few suffer from a slight miss focus or poor panning skills but they just about scrape the pass box for me.. Anyway, enough chit chat. Here are the products. Please enjoy.

    Hope you enjoyed them. I know some have blurred marshals & forground tires in a few but I wanted to show abit of everything.

    Comments and critic welcomed as always.

    Considering you used very slow shutter speeds, I think you did well. I think you could have used a faster shutter (up to 1/250) and still got sense of speed, and sharper captures.

    I'm loving #2 & #11, but they're all pretty darn good!
    Some of them could perhaps use a bit more space to travel into :)

    Did you go back and strip the EXIF info from the files? It was there earlier, but not anymore!

    That's weird, it showed your shooting settings earlier (1/40s for the first few shots), but now it's gone.

    An all round very good set of photos, definately captured the motion blur this time! Maybe some are a little to over-processed though...some of the reds look a bit to 'red' if that makes sense :confused:

    The Ferrari's ? Yes I boosted the saturation in processing.
