G'day Everyone,

I thought, for my first post on the Forums, I'd share some of my recent photo's from a Historic Race meeting I attended last weekend down here in Sydney, Australia.

I've been using Pentax camera's for a few years now and I've recently been trying more than just 'point and click' type photography. I'm slowly getting the hang of how to get the best out of my cameras and lenses and the photo's below are some of my better efforts over the weekend.

I hope you enjoy them

1974 Lola T332 Formula 5000, taken with K3, Sigma 18-200 Lens. 1/320sec, f/9, 320 ISO

1990 Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 Group A, taken with K3, Pentax DA* 300 Lens. 1/250sec, f/6.3, 160 ISO

1964 Holden EH, taken with K-50, Sigma 18-200 Lens. 1/100sec, f/5.6, 400 ISO

Even the local wildlife came to watch the racing! Taken with K-50, Sigma 18-200 Lens. 1/160sec, f/8, 500 ISO

All comments and suggestions on how to improve are welcomed

great panning shot of the RS500 - used to love watching the Bathurst race over here in the UK when you had all the group A racers on the mountain
