    And if you'll indulge me, here are the folks who make my job easier. The crew of Home Pylon...enjoying a Hillbilly BBQ....

    Those are really nice shots. It would be a fun challenge to shoot from the home pylon. Very cool perspective.

    Thanks for posting,

    A few more shots. I had some assistance in the post processing from Conner. (Thanks Conner) The dehaze feature in Lightroom CC is an amazing tool. I'm ticked that it wasn't included in the hardcopy version of LR6 (that I paid extra for).





    I really like how this shot came out. Initially it was a borderline throw out because of the haze, but with some work, it really became a great shot. The reflection in the spinner is amazing, as are the rest of the details in the shot. While its a very simple shot, there is a lot to like about it.

    When converted to black and white, it almost looks like a sketch. (I think I might have to print this one out in 20x30)


    The dehaze tool really worked wonders on the Full Noise/Voodoo pass.

    Thanks for the kind words, all. Been away from killing pixels for a couple years (sold the 5D MkII in 2014) and just purchased Canon 5D MkIII and several lenses. Man, it's almost like starting over! Don't remember panning being such a challenge!

    And yes, shooting at Home is a challange. Lighting is horrible (shooting into the sun most of the time) except in the AM when the sun really lightens up the cockpits of the Bip's and F1. Otherwise...not so much.

    Anyway, great work all! I truly enjoy scanning this site after Race Week. Always so impressed with the talent that is on display here!

    Here's to fantastic subject and wondrous light!
