    Just an ordinary spectator was I, so just a few photos to share.





  2. well, they're quite extraordinary pics! Love the angle in #2, not as keen as #3 being tilted...great colors & contrast esp #4...w/ nature's natural softbox :biggrin:

    Thanks, all. It was my first GP and I was stoked just to be there. But next year I'll want credentials. :wink:
  8. some of the best ive ever seen of mgp.
  9. OK, I'm sold!! #3 tilted that much is a little much, but still everything is awesome!
  10. I love the shots! I'd love to go to an event like this! Great job!

    Wow, can you imagine racing and turning like that... and on top of that in the rain? Crazy!

    Thanks very much, all.

    IMS doesn't offer many photographic options to the ordinary spectator, so all my shots are from just a few spots. I'm not going to bore you with multiple photos of the same basic scene. Just a few more . . .



  18. Great shots Tim. . :cool: :cool:  Love #4 as well ..

    Motorbike racing is rather addictive. . :wink:

    I agree. What kind of access does an 'ordinary' spectator have to get those kinds of shots? What lens did you shoot these with?

    Access? None. I was shooting over, around, and in the case of #2, through the fence (if you look closely you can see the chain-link :wink: ). #1 was captured from an area that I knew was mistakenly left available to spectators; by Friday afternoon it was roped off. It was still a good spot behind the ropes but from then on it was constantly crowded with guys under the impression full tripods and gimball heads are somehow necessary for shooting motorcycle racing. :rolleyes:  #4 was captured from over the spectator fence and through one of the "pro" photo holes, which happened to be unoccupied at the time.

    Everything here was captured with my D300, AF-S 300 f/4, and TC14.
