    I will be back at the end of January shooting the 24. I will have my M9 and I will also be shooting with a Monochrom. All the pictures above were shot with M9 @ 50mm (Noctilux)

    Scott, I like the series. They provide a more personal viewpoint of the racing scene. The thin DOF works well in most cases, but it can be tough to get in the correct place with a rangefinder. For example, in the last photo the plane of focus is on the neck instead of the eyes unless that was intentional.

    I'm jealous. 🙂 More please!

    Nice stuff Scott! I can't wait to see some of the photos from the actual race weekend. I'll agree with Mark that the focus on the last shot is a bit off, but for someone who JUST got a Noctilux and is really new to the M system, you are doing amazing things with it. Keep it up!

    Josh,
    It was one single shot of one of my favorite drivers. I was fortunate enough to get him at the right time! It is still a usable image and I stand by it.

    Thanks Pete,
    Here's a few more.
