Hi Stephen.
Some cool shots, I’d imagine (based on when I shot model aircraft) that they are difficult to shoot, close and fast!
Really like the “oberto” shot, nicely done.

Cheers, Graham.

Cool shots, Stephen. I especially like the 3 and 5th one.

Very much so. Its a decently lit place, but for the pace these cars go I could definitely go for some more. Id ideally like to be in the 1/1000 range but the light is only good enough for 1/640 or 1/800(on the dark side IMO) at 4000iso(much higher and the noise gets a bit to much for me) obviously all at 2.8. The hard part is getting the focus spot on the cars with them being so small(buggies). Its the most challenging Motorsports subject I do and I really enjoy doing it for the shear challenge.

Cool shots, Stephen. I especially like the 3 and 5th one.
The oberto shot was like 1/3 that turned out from that spot. Its a good thing its all digital these days or that spot would have wasted countless rolls of film.
That racing picture was a good spot, wish I'd had spent more time in that area.

Thanks for the comments!

Hi Folks.
I found some folders from when I owned a 5D that I hadn’t processed, I had a look and found a few shots from Goodwood Revival ‘16 that weren’t too small to use, I only had the 24-105 on that body, so many of the shots were cropping toooo small! ::)

Hi Graham, they may be "old" but even back then you managed to make some very nice panned shots! Lots of background (motion) blurring even with no more than 105mm...

Hi Wiebe.
Thanks for the kind words, I really enjoyed that camera, it was my “gateway drug” to FF cameras!  :o ::)

Some of the most unusual racing I have witnessed, much more graceful and flowing than usual, but they were still racing!

Hi Folks.
Some more shots from the Goodwood Members Meeting last weekend, after the first few shots in the snow I went back to the car and removed the 24-105 f4L from the 1DsIII and replaced it with the 70-200 f2.8LII as I was concerned that the extending nature of the 24-105 would draw water from the melting snow in to the inside of the lens as I zoomed in and out, with the 70-200 being an internal zoom and focus lens I felt much safer, I spent the rest of the time shooting with that combo without extra waterproofing with no issues. Well apart from just before this sequence when I picked the camera up to shoot there was a snow drift in the hood! :o :o The camera was on the Black Rapid hanging with the hood facing in to the wind!  ::) ;D ;D

Hi razashaikh.
Yes he was fine, it was a very slow graceful spin, I mean he was going quite quickly but the spin was slow, a couple of seconds to complete! The first shot shows 12:20:19 and the last shot 12:20:21.

This shot is pretty much where he came to rest, there was another shot but it had the rear sharp and the front blurred, (it doesn’t take much speed differential to blur at 1/40th sec ;) ) he waited for a gap and swung around and re-joined the race, however for the next few laps he seemed a bit more cautious! :)

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Wiebe.
Thanks for the compliment, and hmmm, very nice weather, weeell, not so much when you are standing in it watching car racing, though it did make for some different shots from usual!
You do know Goodwood was an old airfield don’t you ;) what airfields have is very open country around them not so much protection from the weathe! ;D

Cheers, Graham.
