    I have a friend who races a Miata, and these shots are from a weekend at VIR last October, before I'd sold my Canon 5DmarkIII. I brought my full Fuji kit at the time (X-E1, 18/35/60 and 55-200), and then also brought my 5D3 with a 24mm TS-E and 70-200 f/2.8 IS. After about the first hour, I completely ditched the idea of using the 5D with the 70-200 (though did use it some with the 24mm TS-E), and shot most of the weekend with the X-E1.

    Thought I'd share some of my favorite images from the weekend as I continue to introduce myself. It was this weekend that started the chain reaction that convinced me I didn't need my heavy DSLR gear anymore.

    Cool vantage point in #5 - nice color and texture/feel to the shot there (looks like a lot of Clarity or an HDR effect?).

    Thanks--yes, just cranked clarity slider. I don't do HDR.

    I love #4 - I'm assuming that was with the 35mm?
