Sweet pic, thanks for posting!

Since no one has claimed the car in front, I've got a little extra garage space. When do I pick it up? :tongue:

Somethings wrong with that M1 photo. It's been "enhanced" or photoshopped from scratch; it's just not right. Why does the background have motion blur and the car remains sharp? :confused:

sharp eye mate!
so would this effect be completely impossible in-camera, perhaps... a double exposure?

Plus the shadow is photoshop airbrush. Fake. We do these sort of chops daily at work. Not only that, the reflection on the mirror is blue sky. The picture was taken from higher grounds. M1 is moving "up" & angled upward too....reflection should be of the hill that the cameraman is on or reflection of the ground. Not only that, there should be reflections of trees on the M1 too, not to mention that it should be in the "shade" of the trees. :biggrin: :cool:

All other comments notwithstanding, this happens when the camera follows the car during exposure. Done correctly, this effectively makes the background the moving object relative to the camera - not the car.

I don't see anything really wrong with the photos. The shot was done with an effect called "Panning", you follow the car with your camera at a slow shutter speed and create an effect that makes the background blurred, yet keep the subject in focus. I do agree that the cars are very focused, since you are moving there is a chance that the cars would not be crisp. Since these cars are traveling in excess of 150+mph you could use a higher shutter speed and still get a good pan, this was also probably done with a tripod.
I don't think it is smoke coming out of the back of the cars, I think it is water. You can see that the cars were using wipers and the back of the cars are spraying mist, causing it to look like smoke. Anyways that's my take on the pictures.

HPV100, I believe the previous posters are saying that the M1 pic looks photoshopped, not the Ferrari/Maserati pic originally posted. I agree with them - something is just not right about it.

My bad. I didn't see the M1 picture. My computer at work is really slow and didn't download the pic and I just assumed that you guys were talking about the M12 pic. I have now see the M1 pic and I have to agree that it does look suspicious. At the distance which that pic was created I would think that you would of had to really lower the shutter speed, since you are not moving your camera that much, that would also make the car alittle burred.
The more I look at the picture, I'm sure it is photoshopped. The road and trees are shot out of focus not panned, then the M1 pic is photoshopped on to the road. That is my take.

this is a little Off topic, anyone wonders why Red Bull is all over the Motorsports World nowadays, namely last couple years?? F1, GT, MotoGP, Motorcross, F3, Driver's Search, even my local indoor karting facility... Did they just change their marketing boss who is a gear head or something?

Yup! You're absolutely right in that regard. But this is a wide-angle photo, and the blurring is not consistant with that technique (IMHO). The photographer would have to be a super magician to get the car as sharp as it is in this shot.

What track is the M1 on?
Looks a bit like the back of New Hampshire Int'l.
