10. After crashing during practice for the Japanese GP, Daniel Ricciardo managed to make the Red Bull's nose look worse. This makes it worthy of number 10. Out of irony perhaps.

9. A nice view of the departing Viper (Dodge/SRT are pulling out of racing for 2015), from a vantage point that is rarely seen at Road Atlanta - from the public area.

8. Multiple rally champion Sébastien Loeb, a luge, beautiful mountains and the Great Wall (just out of frame). What a cool guy, right?

5. Syncronicity at turn 7 of Road Atlanta. Driver's eyes, golden light, and dark background. Very nice.

4. Everything is right in this photo. The confetti is right, the car is right, and correctly exposed, the light is right on Logano's face, the team in the background is right. Even the TV guy on the right contributes to this frame.

3. Great moment from Petit Le Mans winner Jordan Taylor before being joined by teammates Max Angelelli and brother Ricky Taylor. It's a long race, but the winner always has that extra energy some how...

2. Slow shutter speed and a pop of flash from off-camera. Turns an otherwise normal-looking scene into something special, just like that. When it's done well, it looks simple.

1. We hesitated to include this in our top 10 photos. But in the end, in order to remember our friend Jules Bianchi we've included it. Sometimes, a news photograph is more powerful because of what is going on in the image. Adrian Sutil's body language says it all. Much has been written about this fateful weekend and more talk will surely come of it. Part of photography's role (and art in general) is to arise an emotion from the viewer.

 

Forza Jules.
