    Great job!

    However a tip from photographer to photographer: Next time, try not to stand next to that glass window that says "Robin Guess Action Photo".

    If there was a window that said that then i have a copyright to a lot more photos that i did not take :D

    I did get a chance to take a Cannon EOS Mk2 with a 600 mm lens for a test drive. while it is neat to be able to fire away 6 frames a second for about 10 seconds then pick the best out of that burst of shots on the fly. I dont think it is for me.

    I kinda liken it to hunting with a single shot gun vs an AK-47 in full auto mode

    so i am still on the fence about getting a digital slr right now

    Hehe. With my SLR and the long 600mm Nikkor lens I've often thought, that it is getting too easy. Kinda like shooting fish in a barrel. Basically every picture turns out perfect and eliminating bad ones becomes almost impossible ("Do I like Rubens here better or on this one an inch closer to the apex?").

    OTOH it does save on film and cost to just go digital. I'm instantly deleting what I don't like and hence can cram about an entire F1 day onto one chip. Whereas on analog my pockets were filling up quickly with rolls and rolls of film.

    You do have a point there on the savings in development cost. i shot 16 rolls of film at Indy. what i am doing is having the rolls developed and burned to a CD. then i can look at them on the computer do my cropping etc save the picture to a CF card and then having them printed out. so i guess you could say i am not a film photographer and not a digital photographer more like a "Hybrid photographer" ;)

    That is exactly how I operated before I bought the D-70. With the exception, that I run through 16 rolls in about one day, so a weekend would be more like 50...

    Thanks. I always take offense if a pic from a lesser team (e.g. Jordan or Jag) shows up before one of the Saubers. But then again I'm biased, having grown up a stone throw away from their factory.

    Andreas,

    I can understand that one that is why it is such a delema to choose what race to go to in Europe next year. I want to visit the place of my birth but i also want to live it up in Monaco. and with only a week to play with it would be hard to do both of them in 1 trip

    Oh well i better get off of this board and start sorting thru all of these pictures that i have. so i can post them to my web site also ;)

    Some nice shots there. The one of Ralf is spectacular.

    Don't you just hate the catch fences? That's why I always try to get seats as high up as possible.

    I took a lot, the can be found on my website, www.maxpowered.com. Let me know what you think. I tried to attach some to this post but they are too large.

    As I said, I like the one of Ralf's accident. Rare shot. Reminded me a bit of the one I took of Rubens when he crashed at the same spot a few years ago in qualifying.

    You need to shrink them to 640x480 or smaller to post them here.

    Make sure they're not bigger than 640x480 pixels.

    Those shots of Ralf's crash and his subsequent rescue are spine chilling. Ralf's crash and his rescue efforts (or lack there of) have tarnished my image of the Indianapolis track. I hope they can find a better venue in the USGP in whch the medics can reach the injured driver faster. Those are some great shots.

    Thanks guys, I'm glad you liked them. Ralf's accident was very scary. Especially with the car sitting there for so long while he was still in it. It's amazing in person to see how far his car slid after impact.

    I'm a long time F1 fan and this was the first race I attended. I can't wait till next year!
