A police car crashed during a high speed maneuver. I heard the smash about midnight right out front and grabbed my camera. The deputy was uninjured, though rather shook up. Picture was taken using infrared settings with no flash. The infrared image was converted to black and white in PhotoShop and enhanced slightly. I didn’t see the deputy in the darkness and was surprised later to find him in the picture.

    Great work! It’s got a real “just happened” look to it. Thought about cropping the bottom?

  • Thank you Peter! Actually, I did crop the bottom and left side quite a bit. The problem is I was shooting eBay stuff at 1 MP when the accident occurred. I ran outside with my adrenaline pumping and never thought about it. Cropping any closer I get too much loss of resolution. Any ideas about that?

    awsome !!!!!!!!

  • Thanks! Every cop in the county showed up at this wreck and immediately threatened to arrest me for taking pictures! Otherwise I couldn’t have gotten more. The police were out of line with their threats, and the chief called the next day to appologize, but by then of course it was too late…

    great shot, the poor cop looks distraught

  • The cop was distraught. He’d just run over another car during a high speed maneuver. The other driver was hurt. Thanx for making a comment!
