Before the Race: Suzuka, Japan

This was shot just before the 458Challenge race on Sunday morning at the recent Ferrari Racing Days.

Very difficult area to work in as there are cars powering out of the pit-lane from behind you and in front of you. Concentrating too hard on a shot for too long could easily get you into serious trouble. And there are lots of elements to fit into the frame, with some of them changing position quickly.

Big learning-curve shooting at this event. Great experience.

    I love this photo. Did you use an Action in Photoshop or all manual? If so, any idea what it was called? Loved the subtleness of color in the photo.

  6. Hi Cam,

    I have made a collection of presets, picture-controls, for the Nikon and this was made using one of them. A tiny bit of additional colour processing was done using Nik Color Efex Pro3 plugins in Photoshop.
