    First time motorsport shots

    First time with a decent lens - EF 70-200 USM II - and a 70D with a 430EX speedlight.

    I like this one for the story:

    But some folks didn't like the barrier so a poofteenth of a second later:

    For me this is spoilt by the hivis in the background and loosing some of the dynamic in the driver eyes.

    Of course fast cars attract fast girls:

    Cool shots nice work! Are you using the 2.8 version? I recently purchased the f/4 IS version as the 2.8 was too expensive, and pretty heavy! Haven't had much of a chance to use it yet but apparently it's not far behind the 2.8 which everyone raves about. PS girls with tats don't smile they just walk around looking super cool.

    Yes, is the 2.8. It is heavy and they are expensive. But they perform.
    The girl was with a Sigma 150-600 at full reach when she was behind the car.

    Hi Stephenm,
    Not sure how you got away with using a flash in a sporting event, high risk of blinding the drivers mate, definitely not recommended practice.
    Sorry, girls with tats don't float my boat. :-(
