i must second richard on that. i find moving cyclists trickier to shoot than rally, you did a great job, especially for a first try. it takes a hell of a lot of practice i think to get good at this, so no need to be disapointed
Thanks for the positive comments! I found out quickly that AF was a waste of effort. With all those moving bikes/bodies the camera would lock on to the trees in the background. Not good. It was tempting to use flash with a low synch speed, but I was concerned that I might distract or blind the riders. A mass pile-up at those speeds (about 50 mph on the downhill) would be really nasty. So it was a matter of using pre-focus and pan where appropriate.

She is nothing special but gets me off my butt on a daily baisis .

Thanks, Doc. Sometimes I have to buy things from overseas because they are not available here. Sometimes I buy things from overseas because they are much cheaper than here.

Dave, a good bike is one that gets ridden. Yours may not be a top-end road bike, but it looks like a good commuter/recreational bike.

This is what a friend rides round the velodrome. It cost him a few dollars from an op-shop. He was leading a bunch at 38km/h for a while last weekend. The road bike he used to ride was another op-shop special. He used to hit 55 on that one. He's fit

DAVE, You have an excellent walking bicycle, it beautiful. Participants of my bicycle club go by such bicycles on 60-100 km a day. It not fast but very comfortable, especially for the fifth rallying-point Велоклуб "Сороковник" страница 23 - Talks on Mark-ITT

Javier, Your photos from city streets are always delightful! Thanks!

Helicopter!




I'm trying to get used to manual focus and split screen again. I'll agree with trying panning shots. Looks like I need a lot of practise indeed, even with legs as small as these. (I could deflate his tyres a bit, it slows him down)
