    hey all,

    I just thought i'd share this photo here, took this on Sunday morning at the MotoGP. my shoulder had gotten so sore that i had given up with the shoulder strap and was just carrying the camera by hand. my feet were just about dead from all the walking and standing, and i probably lost a bit of weight due to not having enough time to eat!

    but this photo pretty much makes it all worthwhile to me. I previewed it on the camera just after i got it and had to smile. then when i got back home and had a chance to see it full size i was even more impressed. :D

    enjoy, let me know what you think. :cool:

    Gives you a better idea as to what it would/could most likely be tho :)

    Dont follow the canon range but;

    Lens: 28.0-300.0 mm

    this lens?

    nice sharp shot there - though perhaps cropping the top of the image so it doesnt include the white may help break down the image to simpler shapes

    cheers for the comments all!
    i agree with the cropping, someone else pointed that out to me as well. i'll have a play with that for when i get this printed. (i just upload mostly full size photos to Flickr as a sort of online backup.)

    correct on the lens, 28-300mm. i ended up hiring that lens and having it sent ahead of me to my accommodation at Phillip Island, so i just unpacked it late Thursday night and went at it for the rest of the weekend! a bit of a story behind the lens situation... i won't go into that... but next year i will definitely be taking my 100-400mm. that particular photo above was taken at Turn 1 where you can get really close, but most other spots you can definitely use the extra reach.

    got this shot in a burst of maybe 6 or 7 (one of the few times in the entire weekend that i was using the "high speed" mode), all the ones with sparks after this were partly out of frame. would have been kicking myself if i missed it (the front tyre is close enough to the edge as is!)

    so there you go - patience and persistence is the moral of the story! :D
