    Here are some shots from last weekend. It was one of the last races of the season. I plan on shooting a 30 club Corvette race not this weekend, but next weekend that I'm really looking forward to.

    Dude these are nice. The wrinkle in the rubber is amazing. Wish I saw spin on the tires though. Was this taken by an action that didn't need a $1900 lens? ;) That bokeh is too perfect.

    The shutter speed was 1/160 in these shots... that's pretty slow. I didn't want to go much lower than that and risk getting motion blur in the body of the cars which were obviously lurching forward.

    As for the bokeh... you tell me. :)

    These look really good! I love how the cars pop off the background.

    I'm gonna make a bet, I call PS (haha get it?) on the bokeh and great pen tool skills! I would love to be wrong here...lol

    Regardless, nice job.

    Doesn't seem to looks right because it looks like the cars just got pasted in there. And if you were shooting wide open it looks weird how the background blur is too even where the background pans out. I say a lens blur function in photoshop.

    data on the website says the flash was fired, which leads me to believe it was a 50mm on the 1dmk3 for the shots and the bokeh was from the low fstop, however the last one was taken at 4.5 which is small, but not for the 50mm L listed in his sig....I'd say it was the 50mmL and there is no photoshopping of the blur

    Well how about looking at the bokeh itself if it make sense. You see how abrupt it transitions are in the foreground and in the background. And if it was that abrupt how could the bokeh come out so even in the background where the different displacement of objects turn out to be blurred evenly. To me it's a blur function. I like the shots but there's just no way you can get that shot out of SOOC. The shutter speed was shot too slow and flash was fired, can't shoot wide open with those specs considering how much light there would be.
