Go Speed Racer Go!

Our next theme day on January 1 will feature our "Photo of the year" from our 2007 postings. While I have not posted today's photo yet this year [until now], it is one of my personal favorites I've taken. Mainly because it was a very difficult shot to get, but it will not be my choice for photo of the year. There were many failed attempts to get this one shot. I had to try many different settings, learn how to pan and shot from where I was sitting without a tripod. I took about 20 shots on the night to get this one. It was also my second night at the races of shooting photos. I did learn, the shorter the exposure, the less chance of unwanted movement in the photo. My settings for this one ended up at f/2.8 and a shutter speed of 1/6 seconds.

I think that picture turned out great. I havent been to the stock car races in years.
