Thanks for the info. We have a local drag strip near me in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. Oh how I wish it had a "bridge" overlooking the drag strip like the one in your photo. Very unique perspective, especially for drag racing.
Really like the second pic, looks like a tilt-shift but your Flickr page says a 400mm was used. How did you get this perspective?
Thanks, glad you liked it. It's just a little photoshop. http://www.photoshopessentials.com/photo-effects/miniature-tilt-shift-cs6/
The miniature effect look works best with an overhead shot. In this case I am standing on a bridge over the drag strip. A platform that was damned hard to get up onto, and was kind of a boring place to shoot from.
