    A few from Goodwood.

    Another one of my favourite things to photograph is motor racing, and living about a 5 minute drive from goodwood motor circuit has it's advantages..

    Thanks for looking Steve.

    They look good to me, Steve. The only slight thing I might consider altering is a little crop from the bottom and right side of the last image.

    Super set of images. Note what Geoff says .. and agree. I particularly like the first one. The bands of tone (I count 6) that run across the image (road-grass-road-grass-hillside-sky) just work perfectly with the lines of the car and make for a wonderful balance.

    Thanks for the replies Geoff & Donald, after having another look I can see you are right about cropping a bit more off, I have done a quick edit, and also took the white lines out as after the crop they didn't look right... I had a bit more of a play about with the levels/saturation as well..

    This is another shot of the same car coming into woodcote corner which I converted to mono to give a bit of a older feel ...

    Steve: I like them all, but with the last image (B&W), I might have
    considered cropping a bit closer to the car on the right side, as that
    would remove that white block. Maintaining the same aspect ratio
    would bring the bottom up just a bit, as well.

    I was always a Chevy and Mopar fan, but those Mustang GT's had it
    all going for them. Power and balance that will hook up to the road
    and yank your head back in the seat...gotta love it!

    Thanks for the advice Mike, I have taken a bit from the right hand side and top and think it looks much better.. I guess sometimes another set of eyes can see things I miss..

    Have you slightly sharpened that last edit, Steve, or is it just the crop making it appear sharper?

    Nice edit Steve, as now my eyes are focused on that incredible machine
    drifting through the corner..
