    A small rally event at Cyprus that took place last month.
    Photos with A6000 and sel16f2.8 (not the best lens for this situation).

    Yeah those are great indeed Alex! I cant stop laughing when I visualize the scene with how the pro photographers looked at you shooting a tiny pocketable a6000 16 2.8 combo while they struggled with their heavy DSLRs and huge 300mm lenses :p

    That's true, among of ~10 photographers, I was the only with mirrorless !!! (You know how it goes here in Cyprus, "bigger is better"...)

    Great results, just the right amount of speed blur and off focused background to give a feel of action! Cool cars....brave spectators! :D

    Thanks Matt!!

    Thank you Will!! (brave spectators and brave photographers). This was the first time for me at rally event and sometimes little scary (one of the cars hit the brake right in front of me)

    Great shots Alex, but those spectators are waaaaaaaaaay to trusting of the driver's for my liking. I hope you get to attend more rally's but hope you don't find out the hard way that the cars don't always make it around the corners.
