[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Vitantonio Liuzzi ; Scuderia Toro Rosso

during qualify session on Saturday. He managed to qualify 12th. Note the white line in the center of the tires, is to indicate the soft tires are mounted on the car....

Technically: Panning technique used . I applied a gradient filter to darken the BG. Resized , sharpened and titled.

bonne photo

Nicely done Robert! The sense of speed is felt very well here by the blurred tires and backgroud but also complimented by the livery on the Red Bull ride. I'm sure you enjoyed the weekend witnessing racing history being made. Thanks so much for sharing the event!

Love and Peace Always

Hello Robert.

Glad to see you had a chance to get to a race this year. Great work as usuall with this one, the detail and color in the car is excellent and a good thought to use the filter.

Panning must be quite difficult Robert, specially with such speeds as in the F1.
I like the sharpness here and the colors...
I'm not sure about the use of the gradient filter though... but that's a matter of taste.

All in all I think you must be proud of this result. It looks fine to me!


Wow! . . You did great capturing this fast moving car. Excellent panning shot.
It's not easy to take this kind of quality. I failed to capture right image in the last race at Sepang.
Great shot Robert.


:-))) later

Hi Robert:
Its my type of image:)

Hello Robert,

Very nicely taken car racing shot. Sharp, and in motion. TFS

Hi Robert! i love F1's! i envy your shot and oppurtunity! good use of panning! TFS

Hi Robert,
Excellent sharpness and good colour, you have captured the movement of the car well with blurred background and tyres.
Tfs Andy

Ok, this should go into a MAGAZINE! It's terrific! And it's so appropriately presented...the FONT on the border has a speedy feel to match the race car!
Again, a great shot by Robert.

Nice capture.
Bit blurred but that's because of the motion.

I think this F1 is not very photogenic, but that might be due to it's darkish colours.


hello robert,

well photographed... whew!! what a shot! this is the one I'm most interested with.. taking shots with speed but alas!! somehow I thought what is this panning? would be glad to know about it, perhaps I lack this one in my shots... :)



Hello my friend

Nice shot. Great I must say. The colors are fine saturated and you have catch the moment very well. On the other hand, I found the lighting somewhat low. Especially on the up side of the image.

Excellent panning Robert ! Très bon piqué ! On sent la vitesse, bravo ! Merci !


Hi Rob!

And what an F1 race it was! It almost turned into a tragedy with that super crash but all well in the end! Excellent action photo of the F1 car!

Very well done
