    V8 Supertourers

    I was invited to the media day for a new motor racing series about to get underway here in New Zealand. I had a bit of fun putting together a few images. The first race is next weekend.

    Mark .... all I can say is WOW, you've got them spot on.

    Definitely my favourite is the first. I was just scrolling up and down and looking again at the first image; it is definitely working on me
    The other two are great images, spot on as well but missing the "zing" factor.

    Awesome job.

    Good stuff Mark. If you ever get an invite to Formula 1 and want someone to hold your spare lenses ...

    I also quite like the first one - it came together quite nicely. I've been having a go at a few composite shots lately. It's pretty hard to get it all so it looks like it all belongs together. I shot the car in broad daylight. It was a bit of a challenge getting all the shadows right and putting a bit of motion blur on the back of the car and blending it as seemlessly as possible. I've got plenty of other ideas but it all takes time. I don't think I saw the sun today.

    I think I'll give birth to triplets before that happens. The media criteria for formula one are incredibly stringent. Circulation has to be a minimum of something like 100000 plus for print issues and who knows what for web based content. Bernie isn't famous for giving anything away I hear.

    I read a little around the movie "Driven" ... Bernie said of Sylvester Stallone "Nice guy" - Sylvester said of Bernie "With that guy, it's always about the money ... every time we talked, the price had gone up". Hmmm - think I'll stick to watching it on TV!

    Very well done Mark. I think your composites are coming along great.

    Re: V8 Supertourers

    Mark,

    I'm "shocked"! Case-in-point - that Ford / speedo composite is without-a-doubt professional quality. You might have found your true calling in life! Bloody well done mate!

    On a different note however, I wish they'd stop calling them "super-cars" or "super-tourers" - as a Formula 1 fan, I find the performance of these "super cars" somewhat "amusing". Someone told me that at one track they lapped at 2:15 ... and the F1 cars were doing it in about 1:30 (in other words lapping them every 3 laps!).
