Got my camera back! : )

I know its not the greatest shot in the world but they're still doing 40 - 50 mph through this chicane (Russells, Snetterton, Norfolk).

So trying to get the cars in detail was a bit of a challenge in itself, let alone waiting for a red one.

Nice one, and you got half a car bonus. :-)Typical isn't it, you wait half an hour for a red one then one and a half come at once. :-)

HMMMM! Maybe I should have tried some trickery in photo paint and changed the leading (half) car to another color.

They would need to spend a lot on the circuit,Its in the fine old british tradition of joining two WW2 runways together and sticking a few surprises in. if any of those cars had got it wrong going through that corner they could easily have ended up in my mug of tea (not a lot of safety fence).

That was an all-around challenge! Cripe, I really didn't mean to pun. Anyway, I sat here staring at your photo, knowing you didn't have much, if any, time for composition, and yet, there it is: a curve leading into a triangle with bright red anchoring the eye to the center of attention. You did very well.

The return of the camera is like that of a lost lover, isn't it?:-)

Yes its good to have thecamera back and nowthat I can postphoto's again I feel I can also pass comment on other peoples. (didnt feel right somehow).

As for the composition. I walked round (well inside) alltwo miles of the circuit and the only place that I could capture the cars comingtowardsme happened to be this chicane (once again more luck than judgement).

Ps: I'm surprised at you using those annoying little animated thingy's. darn it!

Doesn't bother me at all. I've got animation turned off in Internet Explorer. They just sit there like little dead things.
