    so i went to the apba gold cup qualifying/testing round to take a few pics. i thought id make a thread on its own (even though so many pics look the same). there really wasnt any other angles so i guess i just tried to be creative with the editing.

    im not looking for comments/critiques so much as i just wanted to share the event with you guys. but if you have any feedback then lmk!

    all were taken with my noobish nikon d40/55-200vr. really wish i had the extra 100mm reach of the 70-300. 1.6 crop factor ftw in the land of telephotos O_O

    anyways enjoy :)

    Some Great shots there... I have been racing hydroplanes for 20 odd years. It's just part of life now. I should post up some of the shots i took this spring. I run outboard hydro and runabout and always love seeing unlimited shots, i don't usually get to their events as the dates conflict with my own.
    Thanks for posting.

    Great shots Tron, cool boats :)

    Graham - nice pics you have too, but start a new thread next time, so Tron doesn't feel like you hijacked his thread :)

    I certianly didn't intend on thread hijacking. the thread wasn't intended as a critique, just a showcase of the event. I thought i would add the perspective to the boat racing world as we are certainly a minority in the sports/racing community. No harm intended.
    Sorry.
    Have a great day.

    Yes I see what you mean, sorry if my comment seemed harsh. I also think it's nice to see some pics from a less well known sport [​IMG]

    thanks for the complimentsguys, i honestly have no idea about the sport i come from a background of racing cars but i got a chance to go to this event and im really glad i did.

    also, graham, dont worry about the thread jack thing im glad you posted those and gave a little more insight into the sport :thumbup:
