Best Close up

In the 6 days I've gone to the races for pictures, I have taken just over 4000 shots. A little excessive, maybe. Of all the pictures I consider this one the best overall. It fills the frame nicely, includes action and has good detail. The picture was captured with a 500mm manual focus lens. I've even surprised myself. Although the car was on a curve it was still in motion at the time the picture was taken ( from a distance of about 50 feet).

Canon Xs, with canon 500mm F8 manual focus FD mount lens, FD to EF adapter.

F8, 1/1600sec, ISO 800, hand held
