The Dust Bowl 2 cr
I love the racing here. Went to the last meeting of the year today, and got quite a nice collection of shots. This just one of them. No noise reduction at all, the original was shot in RAW format.

F 10 - Aperture priority, ISO-400, exposure 1/1600 sec, focal length 46mm.

F 10 - Aperture priority, ISO-400, exposure 1/1600 sec... hmmm

Nice photo but I don't think the yellow frame fits the photo.

Thanks for your comments. With regard to the settings for this shot -

F 10 aperture priority - Firstly I wanted a good depth of field, secondly this Canon kit lense lacks detail and sharpness. A narrow aperture helps improve this. Therefore I need to operate in Aperture Priority with this lense to maintain a reasonable image reproduction.

ISO 400 - This was the variable "adjuster" to ensure a fast enough exposure. Fast exposure was required because it is an action shot. Lower ISO would have significantly reduced the shutter speed to a point maybe too low to freeze the action.

Exposure 1/1600 - I wanted at least 1/1000 because of the speed of the action, and had the AF set on "servo" to ensure a constant and fast focus bracket.

I´m glad you think it´s a nice photo. smile

Oh and the camera was hand held. No tripod. Another reason for requirement of a particularly fast shutter. smile
