Ferrari Dino - re-visited:

Anthony -

Even though all four corners of this Ferrari are on the ground there is a tremendous amount of motion in this image. Again, like the Maserati 250F, the wire wheels and hubs are a blur, and your panning with the Ferrari left the background with those horizontal dark green lines along with the dark gray lines on the tarmac.

Also, while the nose of the Ferrari is sharp, the driver's helmet and the rear of the car are a bit a-blur. I don't know what caused this but it lends to the motion of this image.

Fortunately, this driver opted for a traditional helmet and attire that doesn't distract from the ambiance of this classic formula racer. Great shot!

Steady-on Leon, you're making me blush here.

I think the in-focus at the front end only is the result of me focusing on a spot on the track and the car not being quite at that point when I squeezed the trigger. I think both kit lenses are more than adequate and this shot is heavily cropped.
