Finally – pictures!

So here are some long-awaited photos:

1) Motocross @ Sõmerpalu

As some of you might know – I have decided to develop or extend my photography skills. First test: Moving motorcycles.

It is really hard to get a sharp picture using AF so I tried to find a good spot, manually focus a spot where the driver with his bike should be and when it was time – take the shot. Here are the results:

As there were many distractions, I managed to take some other photographs as well.

Oops: AF decided that the driver and his bike are not important. (Shot with AI SERVO).

2) Rally Estonia 2014

Test number two – moving cars, flying rocks and dust. By the way – A historic Porsche that passed me during the 2nd stage threw a rock at me … and broke my glasses. Fortunately they are still usable. Maybe I’ll add a picture of my glasses too.
