Blitz Racing Nissan Skyline R34

Well, since there has been no Canon EOS 40D announced at PMA (yet, fingers crossed), I figure I’d post a picture (you guys probably didnt think I actually shot pictures, huh?).

This image was shot during the NASCAR vs D1: “Drift vs Grip” exhibition promoted by Kasey Kahne for his charity foundation. This was back in August 31st 2006, but its one of my favorite pictures.

Its not as (consistently) sharp as it could’ve been, but thats probably due to the combination of:

. shallow depth of field due to being forced to shoot at f2.8
. shooting at ISO1250 or 1600, maybe 3200.. too lazy to look it up, but it was Noise Ninja’ed.. or maybe it was Noiseware Pro’ed..
. shooting at 1/100 shutter because thats all I could muster given the poor night time lighting at Irwindale

In any case, its one of my favorite, thus far..

I posted this using the “Blog This Photo” feature on Flickr.. pretty cool.. maybe I’ll make more use of it in the future..
EDIT: Photo was shot at ISO1600, 70mm, 1/100, noise reduction by Noiseware Pro in Photoshop CS2, cropped
