    These were shot last Labour Day at Mosport International raceway during. I'm new to the forum (and photography forums in general) so I'm posting older shots with my current camera until I pick up my DSLR.

    C&C is welcome!

    1) Panoz Esperante GTLM

    2) Formula BMW - Not happy with the sharpness or levels here, but happy with the capture

    3) Corvette C6-R. Not happy with the composition here, but was the best I could get. Colour stylized.

    4) Whoops!

    5) The devastating Porsche RS Spyder

    6) The magnificent R10 - easily the most difficult car to capture, since it's lightning quick and almost dead silent!

    This was my first real attempt at the track. A faster camera and longer zoom would have helped immensely, but it was this particular weekend that proved to me, without a shadow of a doubt, that the Canon S3 is a very capable P&S, especialy considering the shooting conditions (weather was mostly rainy, but it was all over the map).

    I'd love to hear comments from anyone, but specifically tips on bettering my shots when I'm at the track! OODLES of room for improvement here, no question.

    Ill vouch for motorsport photos being hard to take, even with a SLR. Dont you just hate those Fences! Your panning looks good matie, maybe a few alterations with colour and contrast and saturation etc, but when the SLR arrives, you wont be far wrong.
