Default First bike attempt

Never shot biking before but they were coming right by my house!! 3-day Stage race with hundreds of bikes...

1. Leader of the pack
2. No barriers or security=access!!

#1 is nice, really isolates the leader from the pack.

I agree, i like number one but i think that number two could have used a slower shutter speed so as to get a wee bit of motion blur of the spokes and his legs.

Thanks for the c&c....I'll try the spokes idea next time. I was blown away by the detail in the 2nd shot using the 5D....(check out the hairs on the riders arm) not visible here because I have to beat the shots down pretty well to get under the attachment rules.

Number one is good shot, however the background with the car frustrates me and the big RED traffic light But your right about the detail in 2nd shot! Good old 5d
