Ironicly I didn't grow to appreciate the wide-end until I SOLD my Tokina 12-24mm. I sold it because I wasn't using it, got $400 for it here on the Cafe (no hood or box) and picked up a Sigma 15-30mm f/3.5-4.5 EX DG for $200 on eBay just to have something wider than my standard zoom... well since then I've been so impressed with the build and sharpness of the Sigma that I'v eactually started purposefully using it. These don't compare to littlewing's shot (in quality or danger!) but they are the kind of shots I missed out on by not making myself use the Tokina but am lucky to still be able to get with the Sigma (which I'm seeing go between $350 and $450 now).

Chris: That is an impressive shot! My son would also love this since he's so into sport cars, racing, and drifting although he is only 5 yo. He started at 3 with NASCARs and Forumula 1. And yes please enlighten us by answering Stephen's question.

Stephen: I really like the first two pics! The composition and the colors.

well i'll be at most all other Pro/Pro-Am drift events this year (NOPI, Formula D and D1)...come find me if you make it to anymore. I'll be with S3 magazine so either find the S3 booth or the guy with the S3 hat and branded camera bag :D

Quick question... is the background out of focus from DOF or panning? If panning then that's some darn good panning!
its a mix of both. i was at the hairpin so the cars werent moving extremely fast so i was having some difficulties getting some good pans. i believe i shot this at f5 1/250. so i think the blurred background is a mix of both dof and panning since i was tracking the car as it passed by me

I like the shots here and I like some of the shots I have taken personally with my 10-20mm but I am just not sold on the super-wide concept. I fear I may part with mine very shortly - I have been thinking about it for a long time.

At the same time, enjoy yours and keep taking great shots like this! :smile:
