LOL.... I should not have said anything!! It is a great tool and very useful as it will work with any shot on the web that has not had the Exif stripped out.

I was just looking at some pics taken at a local motocross track to me and the guy is getting some quite good shots (better than I was able to on my only attempt so far).

Have a look at http://www.landrakemotoparc.com/MXDN...s_daverich.htm

Also if you download a prog called Opanda iExif it will allow you to right click on a picture and find out what settings were used for each one..... very helpful to allow you to learn (that is how I knew what camera you had).

Before shooting an event I always try to find shots from other people to see the sort of thing I like/don't like.
Great shots...although I do believe that first one seemed a bit "soft"...all except a couple of parts, anyways. :-)There were a couple of instances where the dirt was blurry in the foreground which seemed to distract. When it was in focus I barely noticed it.One thing Ive learned by talking to other MX shooters is to you a flash to get that extra pop in the details. Hadnt learned that tip when I shotthe pics I posted.

Nice Lotus 7, marc.....is this vintage racing stuff, or can you still get new Lotus 7 kits in the UK?

Hi Kita, yes the Lotus 7 is still a popular kit and there are plenty of options available. Caterham are the company who bought the rights to the original http://www.caterham.co.uk/and I have been fortunate to drive a few of their babies. The second larges manufacturer is Westfield (as in the pic above) http://www.westfield-sportscars.co.uk/but I have never had a drive. My fave is the Quantum Extreme http://www.quantumcars.co.uk/as they are far better for me at 6'5" tall and I can't put the seat right back otherwise I can't reach the peddles properly . The last one of theirs I drove was just over 200bhp in a car that weighs not very much making for a lot of fun. There are plenty of other Lotus 7 inspired cars but these are my 3 fave.

Hey Mark (sorry for the miss spelling the first time)....

Thanks for the info. I have always loved the Lotus 7...I owned an Elan for a while... I see a couple of these companies have US dealers.

I am seriously going to look into a kit! This adventure might put photography on the back burner for awhile! :-)

Thanks, again!
