Nice use of framing (trees) and off-camera strobes to light the car as it passes. Just a nice landscape painting of Rally Sweden.

A pop of strobe, the sun, nice framing. This all combines to make a great rally photo.

Capturing the moment a car goes airborne is oddly easy and difficult at the same time. It all happens so fast, so you pray you're in focus and just mash the button. It also feels very slow, especially if you were watching the incident start (initial contact, etc.) In some ways the photographer experiences the weird tunnel-vision/time bending moment as the drivers crashing. Without the physical danger (most of the time).
