Picture Perfect : Mexican Grand Prix

An early morning in Mexico see’s the mechanics doing pit stop practice just as the sun rises, this gives the photographers a chance to play around with different settings. This image is taken with a long exposure of two seconds which is only possible in this low light. The timing is everything in this shot as the car needs to be at a standstill with the mechanics still busy moving around. This image was the last one in a sequence of 20 images, you know what they say; practice makes perfect!
