    Put an L sticker on the new camera lens... you will be fine as long as you don't bunny hop it when click off a shot.

    Too true Paul! Still learning the camera's capabilities. Although today, the camera does 90% of the work, the cameras are so sophisticated that just like dabbling in Excel spreadsheets, it takes a real expert to get the best out of them. I realise that I have made mistakes with the camera settings so far and could have done better, but the day you stop learning should be the day they screw down the coffin lid!

    A good colour scheme has a lot to do with whether or not you get a good picture. I'm no fan of black cars (particularly matte black) with black wheels and black tyres.

    Agree, black cars dont do much for me either.
    I had a very old Pentax manual body with a case full of lenses, I have still taken my best pics on that camera.
    I to now have a late model Cannon camera with a memory bigger than mine (and likely a brain too!)
    I still need to master it.

    My recent pics have either been with a pocket Canon for most statics (not all) and the moving ones with the Nikon.

    I know purists hate to see these cars modified, but adds a bit of character. Ford Escort with Mazda rotary power.

    On to the Laser 500 meeting. For a so called 'Premier' meeting, it didn't live up to the billing and with about 12 cars making it to the start line come the main race, they maybe should have switched to the original National track? There is nothing that puts off paying spectators more than a handful of cars out of sight for the majority of each lap.

    A very poor entry this year for the feature race and small grids in recent years have been one of the reasons we don't get paying spectators in decent numbers. It takes more than two or three McLarens, Audis and Mercedes to make it worth the visit - and the expense. With virtually no covered viewing for spectators either, HD still has a way to go to get the crowds in.

    I'm no fan of the utes, so why a pic? I'm hugely appreciative of the support from Dayle ITM. Quite frankly, without the huge support from ITM staff as officials, we'd be in dire straits locally, so the least I can do is post a pic in support.

    Why we were one Ferrari short for the actual race - and why I prefer to be at day 1 of a race meeting! More cars. Hate to see cars damaged, but I seem to have a directory/folder titled "Crunched" that is steadily growing.

    Good entry for the annual TACCOCC Christmas at the Downs meeting.

    A steep learning curve first time out with the long lens! Wasn't feeling the best so went home lunch time. (Lack of sleep from overeating Saturday night - not drinking...)

    Just one from the first practice session. Spent a fair bit of time chatting to Nigel, so hopefully, he'll post.

    PS: He has posted! Brilliant shots as always.


    Mike Sexton with a good bit of attitude in the Stanguellini!

    Last meeting of the season over, so the pics I have banked should keep me publishing until the new season kicks in - or I get back to scanning.

    If there was anyone at the meeting who should have revelled in the amount of water, it would have to be Grant Dalton.
