    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I was at a race day sponsered by dad's partner company. They offered to take us for a spin with ford supercar and a subaru impreza wrx 22b. Naturally i took my camera along.

    It was a rainy day and i was not in photography mood i just couldn't wait to get into that passenger seat.

    But since we only got 3 laps in the car i was standing around most of the day so i eventually did reach for the camera.

    A simple snapshot. Let the digicam do the settings cause i couldn't be bothered, turned the auto drive on, and held down the button as the car came screaming around the corner.

    I get home and sure enough most of the pictures look like they were taken by monkeys, but then i found this one:

    That makes up for everything. Fortunatly the driver was in the middle of a gear change which turns a ford v8 into a fantastic looking flame througher.

    Comments?

    /EDIT: Linked for size it's 1024 accross, and 150k sorry i'm out of time and can't resise atm.

    Ok, so someone else is using my techniques huh?
    Terrific shot!
    A little luck in the timing doesn't hurt either.
