Easy Rider by qmorley Easy Rider by qmorley
Finally got my glowing rotor shot. I'm so happy!

This guy had to retire from the rally due to brake failiure, unfortunately. He was putting on a really good show!

Great shot! I really like the panning. The noise doesn't bother me. Easy rider huh? Doesn't look like he's taking it easy to me :giggle:

Haha! Well he sure was fast. I had to crop like this because he was so fast I couldn't even get the whole car in the frame!

Great shot!

the noise doesent bother me.. if you print this the noise will probably not show as well as on a crisp LCD or TFT screen..

I actually got my first glowing brakes photo today, I got 2 to be precise :)

They are hard to capture, this one looks good. Its sharper than mine.

link it up man! I wanna see.

I sharpened it with unsharp mask. I also did noise reduction.

Svarci has one that is way better than mine. I am always jealous of him. You guys are lucky you get WRC!

Thank you. I got three or four but I was having issues with focus and stuff since he was the first car through.

I had forgotten how fast they can go.. :)

I love rally!

awesome panning and composition! my only complaint is that its really noisy.

qmorley Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2007
well thats because I used ISO 1600. I really needed it though I promise.

I must have still been messing with it :) I'm not going over 400 again unless my life depends on it, I will just have to suck it up and work on my panning and focusing. :)

It was only a few months ago when I said that about this deviation: [link]

Just keep trying :)

I think 1/50 is the best for doing shots of cars moving an average speed. It's very tricky though sometimes.

he pulled out? I heard they just pulled another alcon caliper out of a box and put it back on. I saw some pictures of the pistons welded to the pad. Cool stuff!
