Photos from the Watkins Glen Rolex race this weekend

I flew down to see these guys race at Daytona in January, and this last weekend was a race about an hour away from where I live at Watkins Glen (New York). Friday was the Koni Challenge race and Saturday the Rolex DP and GT cars had their race.

Wow! Amazing pics!

Hope you don't mind, but I'm going to have to save a few of those and rotate them as backgrounds on my work computer

Well I was in Tv mode pretty much all day, shooting usually between 1/80th and 1/125th depending on how fast the cars were going and how close they were to me, and I let the camera figure out the ISO and f stop value.

If you look below the photos on the webpage, it gives you the shutter and f stop for each one.

Yep, all in Tv mode, hand held. The IS on the 28-300 really helped let me get more keepers.
