    I agree #4 is poster material..but so is #5! These are just about pefect shots!
    Great composition, focus, color...just superb!
  5. Many thanks for the comments Jeff:smile::smile::smile:
  6. Nice shots again Jason.

    Just reading that the Superstars are complaining about it being very slippy ??

    Should make sunday interesting then.
  7. Hi Sparkey, Heard the same, they were talking about it on Eurosport last night..something about not much drainage to let the water run away...!!
    When we were there yesterday it looked like it could of rained at any moment, hope the rain stays away today...Should be a great race..First time into the Craner Curves should be interesting.....
    A lot of the pics I have posted were taken at McLeans a 90mph left/right in case you wondered...
    All pics D20+80-400vr (handheld)


  8. Jason,

    Just watching Steve Parrish taking bus round Donington. Fantastic.

    My money is on Wizard of Oz today...:biggrin:

    How could you forget Catalunya.
  9. These images are really nice and sharp; bringing excitement to the viewer.

    I am not a sports / action specialist but it looks like image #2, 3 and 8 are less sharp / colorful than the others. Perhaps the focus or panning is not as sharp??
  10. Many thanks for the comments.. It was quite difficult to shoot. The weather was constantly changing, one minute bright sunshine, next overcast, then dull.It was also the first time that I had to shoot through fences. But I know a little more than I did yesterday, so hopefully next time I'll be better:smile:
  11. Hi Sparkey, What a ride from the Wizard....Rossi did'nt have a lot of luck with his tyres though...:smile:
  12. Should have put money on it. Just finished watching on my new Sky Plus system. Busy this afternoon trying to buy extra CF cards for hols.

    Very nice photos Jewson, you did a very good job there.

    I really must visit a GP-race sometime soon, it´s been at least 10 years since I saw one live.
    And too bad it was nearly all up to the tyres this time, it´s allways very hard to choose the right ones when it´s wet but not raining at the start of the race.
  14. Thanks for the comments Nikhe, pity the weather was'nt the same as on Saturday....That would of been even better...

  15. You did well and the images are just what I expected. Spectacular! I like the first Suzuki shot and "painted" Rossi the most.
  16. Thanks Ales:biggrin::smile:

  17. This is classic...well done

    Jason , Great series
    Nice panning and colors, always look forward to your post keep them coming
  19. Excellent this is one sport I would love to shoot
  20. For what it's worth I prefer the images that are slanted up as opposed to down. Upward to me is positive, downward makes it look like the rider is going to bite.
