Gary Eastwood going for a spin during the second Formula Palmer Audi qualifying session at Oulton Park.

The shot would have contained the whole of the car if it wasn't for a st00pid pole getting in the way ... I wasn't planning on taking any shots in that direction!

Excellent stop motion shot! The detail on the tire and the back fin of the car are awesome. Good job...

Love the motion blur and smoke. Off center framing works nicely here

Very cool that the rear tire and tail are in focus but the rest of the car isn't due to movement. Neat looking result.

Nice motion blur, too bad more isn't in focus. I'm sure this one was chosen because of the good action though. Specs on the left are annoying.

Seems like it would have worked better if there had been less cropping. i felt like I was missing some of the picture.

Well-framed. Nice catch. And the lines are parallel to the edge of the photo!

I think the crop/composition is awkward on the rear of the car. I realized that this was not a posed shot. Good color and I like this for the action.
