    It was my first time out to this track so I did not try and waste time and hit all the spots. The weather was over cast all day but the rain stayed away. I felt I did well with my shots being only the 2nd time using my new D300 so I was lucky I learned where the right buttons were as far as modes lol.. I did have to take a few minutes to find the button to open the door for the card when I needed to do a change.. and yeah I felt stupid lol.. :confused:

    Ahha wow , I like your pictures! The last one looks like the kind of picture you see in magazines ( in my humble opinion at least).

    May I ask , how did you do the second picture?

    The 2nd photo is just a plain old panning shot at 1/80 sutter at F10. The trick was to find a spot where the car passed some foreground bushes that were on the hill where I was standing.. I seen maybe this could be a good shot and it was planned. That said I did lose about 50 shots trying to get one like it. Just cuz I knew what I wanted to do don't mean I can just go get it in a few shots lol. Search panning for more info if you don't know how to do it.. Thanks

    last one is awesome! Sell that to a magazine! All are beautiful, nicely done. The last one you may want to make the road horizontal.

    I had to listen to this my whole entire field hockey practice (my HS is a couple miles away from limerock). DAMN it can get really hard to concentrate with all that noise after a while. :lol:
    to think I was considering working there... :meh:

    anywho, great shots. last panning shot is definitely my favorite.

    Wow!
    Those are alot better then the shots I got there today. But then again I didn't have anywhere near the equipment you have.
    Did you get access to the areas that only the pro photographers can get to? Because I can't figure out where you where to get the pictures of the 3 Mustangs and the Aston Martin?

    I'll have to post some of my better ones later even thought they won't be anywhere close to the quality of yours.
    You should got the American Le Mans series race there next year. Thats always a fun event to got to.

    It was my first time at track but I seen it on tv and in videos for years.. They did a repave and changed some things around. The spot your speaking of is a new area they opened up just before the bridge at the main gate.. I spent most of my time there. And I was told that from turns 3 and 4 they set up a 2nd fence where they let you go in and get a bit closer to the action. All shots were taken were no special access was needed.

    The last shot in the original post is the far and away best of the series. It's splendid. Overall a very nice series.
