You may like it, you may disagree it, but it is still the fact - Michael Schumacher, the most talented Formula 1 driver ever (I am McLaren Mercedes fan, but admit his talent). His nickname is the 'Red Baron' after a very successive WWI pilot.
The photo was taken in Hockenheim. I was enjoying this magnificent sport and also tried 'panning' technique to take photos in motion with so cool blurred background. The cars were running at apr 120-140 kmp at the point where I was capturing them (sitting 150 meters from the track:)
Postprocessing: cropped, levels adjusted, frame added.

I don't anything about who is or who is not the best Formula I driver (I did appreciate the information) however, I do know a great capture when I see one. Good job panning and cropping. Did you get others. Post some more.

Awesome shot!!! Considering you were 150 meters away, I would say that this is a perfect shot!!! I was there too !!!

A clear car on a blurred background. This is an excellent example of photo panning.
