After two days of fun, drama and skill, the Jamaican pair of Jeffrey Panton and co-driver Mike Fennell Jr were declared provisional winners of the FIA/NACAM/JMMC Rally Jamaica 2015 motorsport event, which concluded yesterday afternoon on the waterfront, downtown Kingston. It underlined another triumphant year for Panton and Fennel, who have had a successful stint in rallying across the region in 2015. The two have had their fair share of successes on the Barbados circuit. “Though it is a win, it is not satisfying for me because one of our main competitors, John Powell, took ill and could take no further part yesterday. We were looking forward to the rivalry,” Panton told The Gleaner, shortly after arriving safely at the Bank of Nova Scotia car park, downtown Kingston. At the lunch halt in Bog Walk yesterday, Panton explained how he had to be extremely cautious negotiating the terrains on the latter stages on Saturday because the course had become slippery as a result of the rain. “We were very cautious, hence we were able to accumulate a comfortable lead coming into this morning (yesterday), said Panton, who drove one of the two WRC Ford Focus cars. According to Panton, he intends to have dialogue with a number of the top drivers in the region, with a view to staging a regional rally championship next year. Up to press time, in second place was the French team of Simon Jean Joseph and co-driver Jack Boyere, driving a 2008 Ford Focus WRC. “It is a pleasure to be here rallying with the boys. The rally has been very good, even though there was not much competition. There was no battle. We had a difficult start on Saturday, but we pulled through. We were expecting a bit more spectators. Among the things that I wanted to achieve today (yesterday) was to demonstrate to the public how we can use a small car like this and do a good job,” Jean-Joseph told The Gleaner during the lunch period. Unofficially, in third place was Jetcon’s Joel Jackson and Dmitri Dawkins, driving a 2008 Subaru STI. Approaching the final stage in Bog Walk, last year’s winners, Kyle Gregg and co-driver Hugh Hutchinson, were occupying third place, but a sudden downpour, combined with other acts of nature, took down a tree, which fell into the path of Gregg’s 2007 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 10. They were on to the final leg in downtown Kingston when this happened. That was the end of the rally for them. The organisers are expected to announce the respective winners, officially, this evening, during the prize-giving ceremony at the Knutsford Court Hotel, New Kingston. Happy overall

Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette 1 The future of Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool target Alexandre Lacazette has been thrown into doubt after the Lyon striker revealed he was ‘hurt and disappointed’ by the actions of the club over his new contract.Lacazette, the free-scoring forward, penned a one-year contract extension during the summer after months of speculation that he was set to leave.The deal made, which now runs to 2019, made him Lyon’s highest paid player after scoring 27 goals in 33 Ligue 1 games last season.But Lacazette was not happy that club president Jean Michel Aulus decided to make it public what terms he was offering the 24-year-old in a bid to keep him at the Stade des Lumieres.“Yes, it is his [Aulas’] attitude,” he told L’Equipe.“When he talks, a lot of fans listen. And when he retells things, seen from his point of view, it makes you think that the player is in the wrong. Yes his behaviour hurt and disappointed me.“It hurt. I think that is a justified word to use. When you are a youngster at the club, in the town, and you have never really behaved in a nasty way to anyone, to be treated like that, yes, it hurts. I had had my best ever season, I really helped the team to reach the Champions League again.”The France international has scored just once in the first six Ligue 1 games so far this term.On the contract speculation, he added: “It affects you, to be honest. You want to think about something else, but you cannot.“Normally, you are happy to come back [to a new season], to see everyone again…but the coaching staff could see that I was not in a good place.“The coaching staff were expecting a lot from me. And to see that I was not in a good way must have annoyed them. It really hurt me.”

Got any tips for working with lens flares? Share your experiences in the comments below! Lens flares are perfect for giving your footage blockbuster atmosphere. But how can you best utilize them when you don’t have a blockbuster budget?Lens flares, though in the past considered a flaw when seen in films, are everywhere now. They’re a great tool to turn to when you want to add depth and atmosphere to your project. How are they created? Basically, lens flares occur when direct light hits a camera’s sensor, creating a stream of shapes and color that washes across the screen. DNews released this exquisite video on how lens flares form and where they come from.Creating Your Own Lens FlaresIn this quick how-to from Olufemii Tutorials, creating light leaks and lens flares is made simple with just a few common inexpensive items found at local hardware and dollar stores. Remember though — the flares you shoot will only be as good as your lens and camera.Using the SunHarnessing the power of the sun is an obvious method for producing lens flares and light leaks. The natural light source can provide an excellent in-camera effect. However, getting the right shot is tricky and can prove rather difficult given that you can’t control the strength of the sun’s light or the timing.Friendly reminder: If your characters are in the same shot as the sun, remember to position your subjects in a way that doesn’t blow your image or colors out. YouTuber Devin Supertramp made this excellent video explaining how to set your f-stop when shooting for lens flares and the different shapes you’ll be able to produce.Lens Flare Packs: The Perfect Post-Production SolutionTo get the type of wide lens flares that you see in the work of J.J. Abrams, you would need to shoot the flares with an anamorphic lens. Of course, you might not have the budget to work with such expensive glass. Additionally, time and available light can be an issue as well.If you find these roadblocks preventing you from capturing perfect lens flares on your own, a reasonable post-production solution might be best — and our friends at RocketStock have got you covered with Radium, a video-asset pack of 120 anamorphic lens flares in 4k, downloadable for Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro and After Effects. Each and every lens flare was captured organically with studio-quality anamorphic lenses. Using Radium will save you time and money — and your project will look like a blockbuster.
