Excellent capture in mid flight! I am amazed at the sharpness of the car, especially with how fast these things go. The blur of the background adds a nice touch of kinetic feel to the image.

Knowing how colorful these cars can be, I would love to see the original in color...

Excellent. Well seen, captured and presented. And at 1/100 sec, it's incredibly sharp. Well done!

Wow, very sharp image. I like the contrast between the car and the white line. The blur on the top portion of the photo really gives the feel of super fast movement.

Love the composition and although I understand the comment about cropping I prefer this with the blurred background as it enhances the speed (was it luck getting the car's main sponsor as the advertising in the bg?)

Would have done well in the panning challenge methinks ;)

I was gonna ask, but everyone congratulated you on the panning. Looks great! The car looks almost like it was painted into your photo. I bet it has some rich tones. Good shot!

Cool shot! Though I suspect with the way they paint these babies, it probably looks quite good in color. Great job with the panning!

Really awesome. I am very jealous of this shot! Need to get myself to Durban to catch the race.

Great photo excellent panning motion and the framing, with the diagonal lines, really help it jump out.

Precision in viewing and preparation is what you remind me about when I look at this photo.

That is one cool car! The top side of the photo is really distracting..I would replace that with the road from the bottom giving this car front and center attention.

Really nice capture. This looks good in b/w.

You got the panning perfectly. Like the rich dark greys.

Fantastic job of panning. And the lack of color lets us focus on the car, not all the bright stickers and ads.

Great panning and not your typical angle for a car shot. The BW also adds another element to it, as we are used to colorful photos of this type. Good work and the greys are great

de-sat-u-rate.... I'm writing that down 'cause I've got to figure that out and try it! I love the rich blacks and yet it still has many shades and tones! Excellent!
