Picture Perfect : Australian Grand Prix

Nico blasts his way around Albert Park lake during qualifying. This photo is taken from high up on a tower at turn 8, and requires a steady hand to follow the car with a very slow shutter speed as it flashes past the packed crowds watching on. By using the bright colours of the fans in the foreground blurred with the movement of the camera whilst keeping the sharpness of the car, you get thevision of Nico at maximum attack as he claims 8th place on the grid.
