Hi all,

It seems every year I do one of these wrap-ups they get closer and closer together :( I must be old now. It's coming up to 10 years now since I picked up my first DSLR and a lot has happened in those years - hopefully the pictures continue to improve :D

Anyway, here's a selection from 2018, shooting British GT and WEC trackside with a couple of speccy trips to the F1 and Blancpain.

C&C more than welcome as always...

1. It started out in March with the British GT Media Day

Really liking your pit shots this year and considering the conditions and dispite the fact it's one of your trademark angles no 10 still just suprised me. (y)

As always great images and unreal processing skills. Hard to pick a favourite from these but your pitlane shots are excellent.

Hahaha I think it's marginal gains, still have a lot of points through year where I kick myself for not doing something better... haha glad you're not blighted with neck ache ;)

No 9 blows me away.
Glad you like it :D

Very kind of you... it's all just practice, I still feel like that looking at my contemporaries too :)

As always great images and unreal processing skills. Hard to pick a favourite from these but your pitlane shots are excellent.
Thanks mate, the pit stuff is always nice to do for variety but I'm still not very consistant when it comes to getting the shot I set out to.

You have skills. Shots are great and the processing excellent.
Hahaha thanks very much

Another great year Jonny, you go from strength to strength.
Cheers Neil, here's hoping :D

These are mind blowingly good :D
CHeers :D

Excellent set, love the pit shots. :)
Thanks very much :)

Stunning. Very stunning.
Thanks mate

I concur with everyone else; stunning shots.
Very kind of you sir!

Stunningly good work.

Cheers Pal

Thanks mate, I appreciate the feedback :) Glad you like them

Fantastic, 9,11 and 16 shade it for me, I'd love to see 5 in colour :)
Hahaha thanks... sadly the tones dont work as well so prefered the impact of the B+W

Well done Jonny another cracking year for you. Your processing has always stood out to me as well as your panning skills with the long lenses, would love to se some wider action too.

Cheers Paul, I did work some wider stuff this year but I didnt wanna go too overboard filling the thread with images XD

I think that's your best work yet!

Like all of those - particularly the McLaren and Samantha.

Is it me, or is the colour of the 95 Aston a bit... Off?
