    Yes, some good results. But why is there that bad vignetting in several of the photos (1, 3 and 5) - at the top left and top right corners. I would be surprised if the lenses were that bad.

    Yes

    I actually liked no 1 for that reason . So I wouldn't say it was bad.

    It's added in PP - not to everyone's tastes I know but there isn't any in reality.

    Some good stuff there. I, for one, like hte post processing done...but as stated...it is a personal preference.

    I think my laptop needs sorting as the PP looked quite mild on there but on an iPad it looks a bit too heavy handed

    I think it's a great series and the post-processing sets off the shots perfectly, it reflects what drag racing is all about.

    I probably should have explained what I meant by the shots and post-processing reflecting drag racing. Drag racing is usually a few seconds of frenetic activity where the drivers are almost in a tunnel vision mode when the green lights go off.

    The vignetting, I felt, highlighted the focus and tunnel vision that the drivers invariably feel and it put the focus on what drag racing is all about.

    great work

    and this shot:

    is perfect as I always thought drag racing should be men dressed as women driving really fast.

    Great shots. You work well with the 75-300 and the panning shots.
