    Default Racing - in the wet again

    Go on - have a guess what the weather was like for racing on Saturday. . . . . . it wasn't bright sunshine

    Few I like - usual problem of picking just a few ;-)

    #1


    #2


    #3


    #4


    #5 - just because I love the Vitesse


    Rest are HERE if you're bored (really REALLY bored ;-) )


    Thanks for looking

    .DAVID.

    Nice set in really trying conditions, have to say the gloom and the lights on do add something to #4.

    Is it my imagination or is it that we as photographers notice it more but here in Lincolnshire, apart from the odd day, it has seemed cloudy and gloomy for weeks and weeks

    Regards Paul

    The gloom makes them more interesting for me :)


    That'll be the mustard cloud then Paul.

    The yuk weather works for me. Much more difficulty compromising on your settings, but you pulled it off.

    Love the Vitesse Estate in the last shot. Don't think I have ever seen one before.

    You've not been lucky with the weather this year have you! Really like the symmetry in #1 and did it really get that dark #4!!

    Hey Paul, just call me Mr Rain god lol. Yes it really did get dark very quickly although to be honest I did have the exposure comp down a tiny bit to keep the iso lower - although the mkII does handle the low light so much better than I'm used to.

    Colin - I have only ever seen this one 'Vitesse estate / van' it really is unbelievably well looked after.

    I really like number 4 and how the rain just lights up in the beam.

    Nice set.
