    This is a copy and past from another site. I spent the day at an autosolo watching friends. There were 45 entrants but all the ones below are from my club - even if not all of them used Triumphs.

    Here's some quick scans. I get them developed but not printed then scan them in to review before picking what I like and doing a proper job of them. These are from the proof scans.

    Started off shooting into the sun - bad practice. Longer shutter needed me thinks. Still, first time I've tried this sort of thing.

    I only really took shots of CT related things but couldn't resist these two.

    And the Escort. I think this is the straightest line it took all day.

    I'd slow the shutter down and pan to help convey motion. And you did a pretty good job of giving the car room to move forward in the picture, but don't cut the back of the car off.
