Expert Critique: Capturing Motorsports

Flame On by Paul Belli

This was my first real use of my Sigma 150-600mm lens for motorsport, I usually use it for wildlife. I'd watched this particular Ford come around for 2 previous laps and saw that it would blow massive flames coming into the corner on the down shift so I tracked it on the next lap to make it my focus, with the intention of capturing the flames, but also trying to achieve a good composition of the car in battle.
