Picture Perfect : Russian Grand Prix

A good photograph is all about using the light to your benefit and some beautiful low autumnal sunlight fell on the Sochi Autodrom during qualifying on Saturday evening. This image was captured as Carlos attacks the final corner of the circuit. He is appearing out of the shadows and by exposing for the bright sunlight, the background is thrown into total darkness.
