Heading into the soaking start of the Japanese Grand Prix, there are five races left in the 2014 Formula One World Championship. Lewis Hamilton leads his teammate Nico Rosberg by a slim 3 points. Just a few weeks ago, this scenario seemed unlikely. Rosberg was 29 points ahead of his teammate, and seemed a lock to claim the 2014 World Driver’s Championship (WDC).
I shot this photo over a year ago at Arlington Park Race Track, and just revisited it the other day. Initially, I did nothing with this shot, as I was underwhelmed by it and just did not see much of anything in the shot. Fast forward about a year, and as I was looking through old photos, I saw a different crop, and thought that passing the RAW image through Photomatix to create an HDR image could be something.
