    GTS PMC 09 Winner: @FerrellJ - (click for full-size)

    This Week's Theme
    Allow me the opportunity to get personal this week: I love a good artistic theme. This week's judge, @FerrellJ, has provided just that with "Deliberate Focus". Read on:

    "The locations in GT Sport contain a lot of details besides just the cars on track. Photo mode provides an incredibly accurate simulation of real camera controls, allowing you to adjust focal length, shutter speed and aperture as you would on a real camera. Time to leverage those elements and compose a shot in which something besides a car is your primary subject. Here's the catch though- a car (or some part of it) still has to be somewhere in the frame."

    CARS: Any
    LIVERIES: Any
    LOCATIONS: Any
    SCAPES: Yes
    UNIQUE RESTRICTIONS: The subject of the photo can not be a car but a car must still be somewhere in the frame

    Damn, @FerrellJ, awesome theme. Definitely worth the wait! :D

    Once again, props to @SlipZtrEm for keeping this going without any help whatsoever. I’d totally lend a hand if I had the time, but that’s the one thing I lack at the moment. :lol:

    You don't have to go completely off the rails. For what it's worth, that shot is pretty similar to shots I was going through and taking while coming up with this theme. The intent was to simply compel people to consciously play around with the camera controls and get a feel for what effect they have on the message your photo conveys (or give people that already have a grasp of that concept a chance to show off a little).

    It was really hard coming up with the wording for this theme- I was originally going to restrict it to just using motion blur or just using depth of field but I could not come up with a way to convey the intent without allowing both tools- and then I had a super wide shot of Willow Springs with cars off in the distance and realized that even framing had a role to play...

    I don’t think I have a shot, but at least I get to show pictures I like.
    If there’s something wrong, please let me know. My idea was to focus the sparks.

    I think scapes take all the fun to this week's theme. It's basically cropping a photograph taken by someone else (because the car is supposed to be secondary).

    Props to the entries that were shot on track. :tup:

    "Watching Over The Eifel Coaster"

    Funnily enough, my list of ideas for photo themes contained something very similar, just in case I ever win one of these :sly:
    I also decided this was an opportunity to give an unloved safety car a bit of spotlight.

    Get what you're saying but there are some beautiful scapes and I for one wanted to try and capture something that stood out to me. There are better photos from the on track submissions no doubt.

    Yeah, I think scapes actually make this theme harder in certain respects because there is only so much depth and range of movement to work with on most of them. That said, scapes allow you to adjust the shutter speed far beyond the 1/60th of a second race mode allows, which is the main reason I left them in.
