Flickr a Day 146: ‘V8 Supercars Pitstop’

Leave a comment

I wouldn’t have guessed today’s selection, when first opening the photostream of Dave Wilson. Self-titled “V8 Supercars Pitstop” wins the Day for color, composition, and drama. You can feel the intensity and drive (no pun intended) of the men. He explains: “Mechanics from the Norton 360 Racing team practice a pitstop during V8 Supercars ‘Austin 400’ weekend at Circuit of the Americas, Austin, Texas, on May 17th, 2013”.

The pic was no easy pick, because there are some superb shots to choose from. Dave’s photostream is magnificent. He used the Nikon D700 and 14-24mm f/2.8 lens. Vitals: f/8, ISO 200, 1/180 sec, and 20mm.

“Scottish software engineer now living in Austin” is how he describes himself. “Most of my favorite images stress bold shapes and high contrast or high saturation. I enjoy macro photography and do a fair bit of HDR work”. Today’s selection captures “bold shapes” and, unless I am mistaken, “HDR work”. He joined Flickr in September 2006.
