    Well this weekend Ben and my self went up to Kelowna British Columbia Canada to the Knox Mountain hill climb. This is the largest/ longest hill climb in the north west i believe.

    the first day way full of trekking up the mountain on trails to the different corners, while i was dieing from exhaustion Ben kept going on the hardest trails he could find. (jerk :p)

    the 2nd day we hung out on the 3rd corner for most of the day, altho we wanted to get to corner 5 since all the action/ crashes were happening there.

    anyways, it was a blast and any one in the northwest needs to check this event out. some badass cars on a really cool coarse.

    on to the photos!!

    Some really great shots of some bad a** cars! I like number 1, but I wish the background were a little better. Nothing you did though!

    Congrats!

    thanks for the suggestion, i tried to go around 125, but the way the cars were coming in it was hard to pan. im going to have to try and get out to some more events in the future to practice panning thats for sure.

    I think they are too tightly cropped, they just look like pictures of cars. Panning would add action to the shot, maybe a couple of them close together, if that would be possible.

    do you mean two cars in one shot? if so thats not possible. this a solo event, so only one car can race up the mountain at a time.

    I think you've got some nice shots here, for example the third one in the first group, and the first one in the second group. Beware of standing with the sun in front of you instead of behind you, a couple in the first group are a bit contrasty/shadowy as a result.

    Nice to see some pics from a hillclimb though, have only been to one myself (long before I got into photography) and it was a short and quite boring course, not very spectator friendly (you couldn't see the final third of the course). They definitely have some interesting cars though :)
