10. This very nearly became the "top 10 photos from the Monaco GP" this week. There were some real stunning scene-setters from our friends at XPB Images, who provided over 2,300 images over the course of five days of coverage. Lovely reflection, pleasing light.

9. Emotions always run high at the Indy 500. Congratulations to Ryan Hunter-Reay who fought hard and clean with Helio Castroneves to claim victory. Nice moment captured.

8. Something a little different for the oft-shot hairpin at Monaco. A good example of using a foreground to add to the image. A pop of flash to light the palm trees and bingo.

7. We love start shots. Other than the obvious (power, cars, danger, etc.) the interesting part of start photos is that it's the exact moment when everyone pictured has equal chance at winning the race.

5. Kurt Busch gets the nod for doing a very good job taking on the Double (Indy 500 and Coca-Cola 600 in the same day). Finished sixth at Indy before suffering a blown engine in the NASCAR portion of his day after completing 910 miles. Next year, Kurt?
