This shot was taken at the local short-track (South Georgia Motorsports Park in Cecil, GA), when the NASCAR South-East Series came to town.

It's taken at:
ISO 3200 (And noise isn't near as bad as I thought it would be)
1/350 second

With my:
Pentax *ist DS
Sigma 70-200 F2.8 Lens

Let me know what you think about it. If you'd like, you can view my other pictures from the race here:

BTW, do y'all have any suggestions about noise-reduction software? I'm looking at Noise Ninja, but before I pay I would like a little more advice.

Thanks alot,

Great shot. You did a really good job especially under the lighting used at race tracks.

As for noise reduction software, I am using Nosieware Professional and it does a pretty good job. it can be found at:


oh yeah, you can donwload a 15 day trial version to see if you like it.

Thank you!

The lighting is pretty tough, but its not totally horrible. The track is pretty new, and I was shooting in one of the bright spots (in the middle of turns 1+2).

The exposure settings ( F3.5, 1/350 second, ISO 3200) were suggested to me by a friend at the track, and they work pretty well. The pictures are shot slightly underexposed however, it takes a bit of Levels or Curves in Photoshop to brighten then up.
