    Thanks
    Ive experimented with the D&B before but it always came out bad, haha. As a result of trying to make the blown out "windscreen" look more normal it gave the rest of the shot that look :x

    But all this editing is just basic stuff in gimp (curves, saturation,croping, sharpening)

    I like 2,4,6,10.

    2) Needs the whole car. But great panning and colours.

    4) Nice shot. Bit hot but sometimes that is out of your control. You caught the reflection.

    6) Interesting take. Probably my favourite shot. Shows speed. Just need a little more balanced crop.

    10) I'd love this shot if it were cropped down to just the bottom right to show the guard rail and pavement dropping off and removing the big tree.

    Looks like a great track. Wish we had something like that around! Our road track is worn out and closing down in a year (City taking over land). It's in the air if they are building a replacement =(
