That's why I love a long lens! Too far away and too fast for your own eyes, you'd never be able to see this: The tire that's already made contact with terra firma is spinning like mad while on the front one you can clearly read the tire brand, it's amazing! Check it out, you'll like it I'm sure!

Now that is impressive!! This gives a really dramatic impression of this everyday event that we take so much for granted, yet never normally see. An excellent study of the moment of touchdown.

Photographically very good! Smart idea makes it outstanding first of all. Also very harmonically, I mean the composition of the picture: it is very classical example. Think a photo like this could be offered to tire manufacturer to be used in advertising.
