Ok, so we have a "best of motorsport 2012", lets have a "worst of motorsport"

Rules:

1) ONE image, your worst.

2) Got to be REALLY BAD not just average :bonk:

3) Feel free to say just how truly bad someone's image is... but only if you have put one up yourself.

4) I don't believe you if you haven't got a REALLY BAD IMAGE from 2012 :D

5) No prizes will be awarded :wacky:

6) This is supposed to be fun PLEASE try to get with the plan :rules:

Gary please sticky!

Wouldn't say that one is that bad!

Look at the lovely out of focusness and fencing!

Soooo here we go, looking through Lightroom I had sooo many that could be posted in here, but for maximum fail...

The concept: Make slow boring trucks look quick with a very slow pan from the centre of Druids - you have to stand back a fair bit to get the HUGE things in

The execution: Big sweeping pan all the way up the hill.... where the **** did you two come from!



Bonus points if any of you are actually in my photo :D

And I thought it was going sooo well.
The Plan.... attempt at a photogenic slowish pan through the trees at Cadwell, manual focus, nice afternoon lighting, I thought I was onto a winner. :naughty:

The result a black blob with a white claw, (there is a bike in there somewhere) :LOL:
It did make me smile when I saw this on the screen of the camera. A strikingly obvious result that I somehow didnt see coming at the time :wacky:

I thought I did quite well at cocking this one up. Apart from having a decent shutter speed to show some pace in the wheels. I managed to get a fence post right in the middle of Schuey's car. And just a little bit of some bloke in front of me:LOL:

I reckon this is one of my worst that I didn't delete in camera:

I had been tracking Matt Neal into the hairpin at Knockhill as he had been locking up a bit with the front brakes glowing nicely for a couple of laps. Waited until the perfect time to press the shutter, and ....

I think thats a beautiful bokeh you have achieved there Alan, so lovely in fact you've had to use it for the entire image and not waste it just on the background.

Top bombing :cool:

We all learn from mistakes, therefore we must all be geniuses by now :bonk:

Any more for any more? We've still got a few weeks of nothing on to kill :D

Probably the worst of the published keepers (mainly because of the content). I do have others that very few people want to see.


Excuse me.... by dicktay2000, on Flickr

Tasman Revival 2012, from the spectator side of the fence.
Sydney, Australia.
Part of a sequence.
Both drivers shook hands when they finally came to a stop at the tyre wall about 100m away.

Thought Id deleted all my dufferes but have been looking through my previous rallycross pics and came across this absolute cracker.
Saw the driver coming in to fast for the corner, fired off a burst off pics, 1st two in focus then some TV guys have put this TV gantry in the way :bonk:
