About a year ago I posted a photo with the same title. It was a mock photo of Michael Schumacher's Ferrari created as a macro shot of a scale version my son had given me. But of course, the dream was one day to get a shot at the man himself. This year I got it. Standing with 10000 other F1 fans at the German Grand Prix greeting the World Champion, he actually turned around and waved in our direction. I find his general pose quite typical of the man - and I also find it quite humorous to see him in a Ferrari - and not at the wheel.
As photographs go, it is of course just a snapshot, and as it has been cropped out of a much bigger shot, I tried to enhance it slightly in PS.

What an event! The great driver himself - and look at the expression on his face :)
Well framed shot with good colors. Well captured.
