Hello all, welcome to my first post.
I am a complete photography newbie, and am enjoying learning all I can.
Thought I would share with you my first attempt at motor sport photography with this shot I took from the British Formula 1 GP this weekend:
Shot with my Fujifilm HS10. Maximum zoom (30X), and through a fence.
I found it very tough to shoot the cars as they are obviously moving very quickly, so I found a spot where they were coming straight at me to give myself a fighting chance.
As the weather was overcast most of the weekend, I found it tough to get a balance between a fast enough shutter speed to freeze the cars and setting the ISO low enough to prevent noise.
I have increased the red and saturation slightly to compensate for the rain that was in the air between me and the car, and to make it pop out more, and also increased the contrast slightly.
What does everyone think?
