The first is darn cool in every way, very spectacular.
In #3, though, the perfect recovery of the shadows
is severely haloed… but can still be corrected.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Thank you! Your're right, the contrast filter I've been using caused this issue. I guess the next pictures do not have this imperfection:

These look better in this regard… which appeared to me
to be of brush stroke nature, possibly.

Yes it seems so, but I used the filter 'Dark contrasts' of 'Color Efex Pro4' and the edge around the car is one result - I'm not happy about this.
@Austria: I live in a small town near Steyr / Upper Austria

Thank you for nice compliments!
@Nikon Shooter: Nice village near to the A2 - but reminds me also of a dark hour in Austrian history.
@Alyssa Briggs: Me too, me too :whistle:
@Steve-Nelson: This event is highly recommendable if you are a fan of motor racing.
Maybe I do have a picture for you:

All your images are wonderful ... some are more wonderful than others.  I love them all. I especially love your pan shots.  Well done amarus69!

There are photographs everywhere. It is the call of photographers to see and capture those images.
