Please note that this is not an area for you to showcase your images, nor is this a place for you to show-off where you have been. This is an area for you to post images so that you may share with us a technique that you have mastered, or are trying to master.

Please note that image critiquing is a matter of give and take: if you post images for critique, and you then expect to receive criticism, then it is also reasonable, fair and appropriate that, in return, you post your critique of the images of other members here as a matter of courtesy.

Also please note that, unless you state something to the contrary, other members might attempt to repost your image with their own post processing applied. We see this as an acceptable form of critique, but should you prefer that others not modify your work, this is perfectly ok, and you should state this, either within your post, or within your signature.

Images posted here should conform with the general forum guidelines. Image sizes should not exceed 950 pixels along the largest side (height or width) and typically no more than four images per post or thread.

The first two of these literally yump out at you.

And the fourth one, with the chopper, car and person, give a great insight into how the sport is run these days.

Actually Gary you're close to the truth I think. I like watching the astonishing drivers parade their considerable skills, but the ever greedy money side of things spoiled a lot of the day. I won't talk about the pro photographers antics in the bush, but down at the special stage in town, there were so many photogs blocking the paying public's view, that it wasn't funny. I guess 5000-6000 attended the early evening stage, but the views were very limited simply because of the numbers of photographers grouped right in front of the jump etc. I said to my son at the time, why not let them have the first run to get their press photos, but then have them all nick off and let the paying mugs actually see something?

I'm not a pro photographer. I wouldn't want to be. Rant over. Normal communications have resumed.

We will now return you to your scheduled round of the NSW state rally championship.

It's been a very long time since I spent a night in a dusty forest, checking cars as they came through the control at way-past-my-bedtime-o'clock ... And even longer since I navigated one of them thar motor vee-hick-les.

Tsk tsk. State rally championships? My dear Mr Stark, this is World Rally Championship, the pinnacle of vee-hick-les racing throughout the world. Or at least northern NSW.

In all seriousness, these blokes are N-U-T-Z. Driving at 200 kph+ right next to giant trees is not logical. But they do it anyway. And the difference between Australia's best rally cars and the pro teams is amazing. Not saying the Aussie drivers are no good, but the cars themselves are something else.
