Great pictures Keith!!!

Did you edit them to look like panoramic pics or is that how they were taken?? Looks like you got the setting down to get the wheels in motion.

I cropped them down. Being that I'm taking 12.9 MP pics now, I can crop and still get a decent quality pic. Barry helped me with the settings, but I still ended up with a lot of trashed pics.

Photos looked good keith, with a bit more practice you will get a higher precentage of keepers.. Nice job.

A bit more practice and a new lens. Now I'm shopping for a 70-200mm L 2.8 IS. Of course, all those Blue GT500's makes me want to shop for one of those also....in my dreams.

One of my mom/step-dad's friends just got a blue w/blk stripes, gonna try to get him to come out to a meet.

I really want to see one of the orange ones....would love to have that color or yellow w/no stripes....

Im telling you, skip the 70-200mm L 2.8 IS and go for the 100-400L IS... Much better lens for what your shooting and cheaper as well.

Cool PICS

Cool Pics.
Can you send me high res versions of a couple shots if I PM you an email address?
Particularly the one that just has "SPEED" above my car, and of course the one of me passing Carl

I've got the 'good' Nikon 70-200. It is a great lens, but it is WAY too short for these types of pictures. You just can't get close enough to the cars - even with the DX sensor 'multiplication' factor. I end up cropping down heavily.

Agreed 100%... Also Keith is shooting with a full framed camera so there is no 'multiplication factor'. 100-400L would be a great fit for this type of shooting.

I've got my IS 75-300mm and that's a nice lense. Sometimes too small, but I'm not about to spend the amount of money my step-dad spends on his camera equipment for a "hobby"....
