Why has 35 got so many votes, Lozza registered a few extra times me thinks cause its one of the worst shots IMO Has to be between 33 & 26

I would def fall under the looking category…
Photo’s 15, 18 & 26 were what stood out the best for me, unfortunately it was a hard decision as all 3 were different scenarios..

35 is just a lucky snapshot that happened to catch the flame spit . Its flat and soft and not even composed properly. Sorry, but there are some stunners in this group but it doesn’t compute why 35 has so many votes. I know this is the amateur cat so maybe that why there are so many votes for the most amateur looking pic.

Well it is an amatuer class, im no pro photographer. It wasnt even my camera, i dont have one.
Not really a lucky snapshot either, i was on the start line at Silverstone all day helping run BDC and i noticed Scotty kept getting some good flames so i made a point of trying to get that shot.
I do agree there are better photos though but also pleased mine has so many votes 🙂

Has to be 26 for me as the picture says a lot.
35 close second though for capturing the moment, not every shot has to be bang on.
30 looks fake to me (IMO)
