wall of death

I got numerous shots here that were perfectly sharp, froze the action or just caught that little hint of it… but none of them really captured the essence of what was going on.

This one, with all its blur and indistinctness, caught it perfectly.

Less is more?
This is something of an experiment; a complete change in my post-processing. No XEL Black and White film simulation, hardly any clarity, very little sharpening above the defaults, none of my usual selenium toning… very little mucking about with anything really. Just a quick correction for highlights and shadows, some contrast and a conversion to monochrome.
