Dunlop Dubai 24 Hour Race

Postby dubaiphil » Sat Jan 15, 2011 8:22 pm

Here are the first shots I've processed from a visit to the first 2 1/2 hours of the Dubai 24 Hour Race. Lots of different cars on display, and one of the first outings of 3 x Mercedes SLS - they sound better even than they look!

Only another 600 photos to go through, but there are a few keepers so far and here are the first half dozen.

Nice sharp pictures and good colors. Good composing and nice blurring out the background a bit, to make sure the right thing stands out. Only thing i might wish for is being a little more creative, like panning or smth crazy. Not for all of them, but just a couple.
Nice job though :)

Awesome shots! Although i would have liked to see the Mercedes SLS in the first shot, to be perfectly centered...
Well done on your panning technique! :)

btw, i would love to have your climate! Here in Denmark it is so cold :x

Well there is panning in there, or else the cars wouldn't be sharp as they're passing at 140-160km/h!

Anyway, here are a few more:

Nice sets. I do like the panning shots but also like that you've included the pit shots. I'm just a tiny bit jealous :)
