    no i hate when the sun is a giant ball of blown out light

    i prefer tiny tiny apertures that make the sun have the long lines of light

    slower shutter speed would just blur the car more. around 1/1000ths is where you stop action... and this picture is at 1/800th. f/22 would be too dark, and slower shutter speed would get you a different effect. I like the picture just the way it is.

    I like that one too Ben. I actually like it more than the one posted. I was on the fence about this one though so thats why I asked the great minds of OTAP

    What he said. The sun is larger and a bigger ball of light because it was shot with a longer lens. Longer lenses enlarge the background more. Small lenses and high apertures will give you the sunbursts because the sun is small in the picture.

    #1: I'd like it better if it cropped a little more off the left, the trailers and tents distract from the car and the way the sunlight reflects off the track. The sun is fine, you never stare into it in real life either.

    i like the first one, i don't love it, but i like it. i think i might actually like it more if it had a different crop. maybe something portrait oriented with the sun at the top and the car below it.

    love the 2nd one :bowdown:

    First is boring. I had no idea what I was supposed to be looking at other than the sun.

    Second FTW

    I see what he was going for in the first one, i just don't think it succeeds... too much dead space on the left side of the frame...

    If it was cropped vertically with the sun on the top left of the frame and the road on the bottom right, i'd like it a lot more...
