This is a very exciting shot, Thomas. I like the movement in the background, with the stop action of the car. Great image. #133608

Hi Thomas, I really enjoy your work, What a great shot. Did you use a static zoom technique for this shot. #1067990

Thomas McConville January 27, 2005

hi don...thanks. the original image was sharp. I added the zoom effect using photoshop's radial blur filter. I used to zoom the lens for this effect but now with photoshop I have so much more control . #1068029
