    I think such photos are really cool, something creative with WRC in it. I mean there are manny photos of jus plain WRC action. I like when someone tries to do something different with it. Though such photo has been done one or few years ago.

But he is far from lazy, does probably most recce and preparation of all photographers. You can find him in every possible place, beyond where many of the "pros" would ever go, and that with lots of extra baggage to carry his tripods and lightning equipment. His photos often carry an atmosphere that you can rarely find from others. Also technically I think he's the best photographer, he has a lot of knowledge about both natural and artificial light which very few rally photographers have. Also his editing is spot on...

    These are a few other photos he's taken this year:

    https://scontent.fbru1-1.fna.fbcdn.n...84&oe=5C05F0EC
    3 out of 4 of these are taken in spots that are in the official guides...

    the fact that he was a photographer before following the WRC shows because his photos technically are immaculate but the spots he chooses are shit 90% of the time as with every pro.

    The fact that he goes through the stages and still chooses those shit places like the last picture shows that he has not learnt anything from years of following the sport.

    Prefer the old school snappers who's only aids were the techniques they learned rather than the software that was available. Tamotsu Futamura, Reinhard Klein, Maurice Selden, Hugh Bishop are my heroes and their work stands up to anything today especially as the events they covered were longer with little or no repeat stages.

    I somehow fail to see what is wrong on using new technologies available. Of course overdoing postprocessing may lead to a ridiculous result. It's a sort of art after all and people either have the feeling or they don't which means not only that those who create stupidly looking photos today would hardly do good photos in the past but as well that those who did good photos in the past would do them again and they would also use the modern technologies if they could. They didn't use them simply because they were not available.

    Wasn't a criticism just my personal preference. Futamura for certain would have been at the forefront of using new technologies to enhance his work if they had been around at his peak. Biggest problem for me regards images in the current era is that the nature of todays events means there are more snappers chasing fewer good locations especially where the FIA have stipulated they should stand. On the subject of snappers is Massimo Bettiol still on the WRC circuit? Not seen his work for a while and he certainly was a fan of Photoshop and big lenses..

    Everybody fill your glasses and drink a toast to Prodrive, Subaru, Colin McRae and Derek Ringer - it was exactly 25 years ago today each of them claimed their first WRC event wins.
    Now if you will excuse me I have a video I want to go and watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A53pmFxzrdY

    Nice video. Especially as I make an appearance toward the end.
    Never do anything you wouldn't want to explain to a paramedic.
