  8. I realize that nothing is perfect, but after examining this photo in great detail, I found no imperfections when it comes to shutter speed, drama, driver's eyes, perspective, etc., etc.

    I LOVE this image! It tells such a powerful story! Excellent processing!
     
  12. This image has such intensity everywhere, with so much going on it amazing that I still get drawn into the drivers eye. One can feel it. Great shot!
     
  13. Randy summed it up................ WOW!!!!!!
     
  14. What others have said. Everyone would be proud to have this image. Has the driver seen it?
     
  15. This is one of my favourite sports, and I have attended many meetings and shot many frames hoping to capture an image that portrayed the somewhat furious and explosive action of the 1000cc sidecars.

    Thanks for the many positive comments.
     
  16. Simply terrific action shot!
     
  17. Stellar, dynamic image. So much to see, it has so much going on in it, I like how the driver is caught looking at the viewer. Would hang it on my wall any day. Skillfully done.
