Fresh from his podium placing at Spa, Jenson Button took to the centre of Manchester today in his 2008 & 2011 McLaren F1 cars.
This was the first chance to use the K5 in 'burst mode'. It was also the first time I'd used the TAv mode.
Due to the crowds, all the shots were taken at arms length with the help of Live-view!
Oh and not surprisingly, it was raining!

Nice set, like 2 and 4 especially.

Interesting processing ... Topaz?

Thanks Mike. I do use Topaz, but these were done with the Nik 'color efex' & 'silver efex' plugins.

Nice set Stopher - I was down by the start line and had a slightly better view, ironically that meant I saw much less of the track action.

#4 really captures the essence of the event.

#2 is great. I might guess at silver Efex pro for the processing on #2.

Some nice captures there
I remember when the F1 cars used to race at Oulton Park in the
days of Emerson Fitipaldi etc.
