Yes, it did turn out really good!! It was my first shot of a competitor on this corner, and I had no idea how it would turn out. It's also my best shot from that location..!

Awesome shot. Looks like dirt and dust is coming out of the vehicle. haha.

I like how the car just jumps out and the background is neat.

Yeah its crazy how the negative pressure on the inside-facing part of the car sucks the dust right up against it.

One of our local drivers was just gifted a new impreza from subaru, and it is ugly. haha. he seems to be doing ok with it. he is a slow and steady driver anyways who wins from being consistent.

pomeroy has plenty of dust.

I had mud form in my ears and nose and dirt between my toes.

I miss the rallies in the woods!!

Yeah my old AE-1 that has been going to rallies since I was 12 or so decided it has had enough dust. Haha. It's totally messed up now.

oh right...I love how you can see the driver and.. (:P forgot the name :|) anyway, is it still Travis and Christian? I'm too lazy to look =P. and wow, another funny thing I just noticed is how you've kinda got the Cingular / AT&T bars theme going on in the background :giggle: :D

cool shot... but i think the shutter speed is too low!
Reply
:iconqmorley:
qmorley Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2008
I was using ISO 100 and wanted sharpness out of my lens. Something has to go, and in this case, it was the shutter speed.

Most rally photographers use a lower shutter speed than I do, anyway!

a rally shot doesn't really need much higer sutters than 320 or 400!

any higher than that and the pic will loose all the action and action will be "freezed"

ur shutter speed is just fine .. tough you could go much lower and extreme sometimes ;D

Some of my best shots were with 1/1000 on film, I love freezing giant rocks in the air. :D

well ... me as mainly a tarmac rally shooter is kinda hard to get any action at all at tarmac with that kind of speed ...

anyway the pic is good and keep up with the good work ;D
