French rallye championchip. Specification in France we have two differents championchip. First on road and the second on dirt. This is the reason we have good drivers, remember Sebastian Loeb

Very good capture and processing for a Single Image file. Chris, I would encourage you to shoot and post multiple exposure images. This could have been a 3 Exposure and processed in Photomatix using the non- ghosting effect to rid the image of any Ghosting the car would have created in the shot. Size and Placement of Watermark is a bit distracting IMHO. The image shows the action of the composition by the dirt flying in the air Top Right of screen as the car makes the turn. Very Cool. Thanks for posting and keep posting.

@digicam thanks for your comment, I'am more confident with static capture and a tripod. Mooving subjets are not always easy.

@decrig , I know they are not easy. But next time try shooting at least one moving subject and try the De-Ghosting program built into Photomatix Pro. You just may surprise your self as to how easy it is to navigate. Plus improve your skills along the way. What have you got to loose? Good Luck.

Congrats on POTD for the second straight day.

I remember Sebastian Loeb. Pretty talented driver. Nice image. I agree single shot are much easier for fast moving scenes like this one but the result is just a pseudo-HDR image. Congrats!

@digicam , for sure nothing to loose, maybee just my arm cause my old tripod is very very large and heavy. I will post here this week a shot with my tripod. Otherwise, thank you for the second POTD.

@carlo Yes Carlo, I agree with you. I tried few times different processing with Photomatix singe raw and multiple raw. Result is not the same and of course, we obtain a pseudo HDR. Also pseudo HDR or nothing, I prefer pseudo HDR. Better than that, with a landscape, from time to time, I process two times on Photomatix, first time for the sky, and second for landscape. Result is fantastic!

@decrig I do the same. Usually 2 different tone-mapping with Photomatix merged in Photoshop. Then I make final adjustments with Lightroom. It's great for cropping, vignetting and removing chromatic aberrations (you have some on the horizon - left side of image). Glad to hear we have similar process.

@decrig , Not sure if you even need a Tripod with this Sony Camera seeing as it has Super SteadyShot Image Stabilization. What ever blur may occur in a 3 Exposure capture can be fixed quite fast in Photomatix Pro's De-Ghosting. Just One Man's Opinion. Have A Great Day!

@digicam, thank you for your message, I will try without a tripod, have a nice day too thanks
