Think my PC is now finally how I want it so things are back to normal now *touch wood*. Was at Castle Combe on Saturday, my first visit and was quite impressed. Very good viewing and easy access to different parts of the circuit. Nice selection of cars too. I think i'll be back soon.

Photography wise I was a little concerned about things getting a bit "samey" so tried a few different things to vary it up a bit.

Anyway here's a few compressed "forum friendly sized" photos...

#1 Approaching Camp

#2 Always love these visors

Note: I was accredited for the day, shooting for FF1600.co.uk. A full race report (including some of my photos) will be found on the site soon...

As always comments/suggestions etc welcomed.

Cheers
:D

Thanks :)

Thanks deggimatt, they are both some of my attepted "different" shots. Sometimes things can get a bit samey so I thought it'd be good to try something other then the norm'.

Cheers

#5 is my favorite, the Midget looks like it's hitting panic mode with the tape on the headlights giving an "I can't bear to look!" look to it.

They're all good pics, but I think B&W does sport photography a disservice. Racing is a very colorful sport, the pics should reflect that (it doesn't help that I'm just naturally biased against B&W photography in the first place).

Thanks guys :)

Yes Claff the driver in #5 did seem to "slam on the anchors" rather accessively. Left his braking to the very last second ;)

Interested in your opinion on B&W motorsport photography. Generally I would agree with you. I decided to use it in this instance because it was "classic" racing and I wanted something a bit different.

Cheers again.

Well I'm anti-B&W photography in the first place, not just for motorsports. I just think it's a crutch, a cheap way to turn a regular old photo into instant drama, and maybe a bit pretentious at the same time. But that's just me, judging from what's posted here I'm waaaaaaaaay in the minority and it certainly isn't the first time that's happened to me.
