This was taken at the Silverstone Grand Prix after the race. I only had a small aps camera which I had to point though a fence to get a shot of Olivier Panis' used tires. They actually write on each tire how many laps it has done, and they all go back to the manufacturer for analysis and improvement. They were loading them into the truck as we walked by. Somewhere along the line I believe that we all benefit from all that research in the end. So I can only approve, if it means I get better tires next winter.
Next time (this year!) I will try to get some shots of the action, though.
I have created a theme for anyone interested in this particular sport.

I'm not so interested in F1 but I like the composition you created here.
The two stacks of tires each has it's own backdrop of containers, sheds etc. effectively dividing the image in two halves.
Putting the walking man right on the border between these two halves is a very good choice.
I also like the way the sense of depth is created only by overlapping vertical planes, there are no perspective lines leading into the distance.
My only critisism would be that the image looks somewhat over-doctored in NeatImage, everything is a bit smeared-out.

Okay - you got me. I've been bitten by the F1 bug for some time, and can't wait for next weekend's races again! I love this view - nice to see what they get up to behind the scenes. Keep on posting, and don't make me too jealous because you can be there - live:-)))

Bonne image qui nous montre bien les plaisir de cette belle competition.
Bien vu la presentation.
L'image penche legerement sur la gauche mais cela ne gene pas.
