I took some images at a local cycling competition. It is no Tour de France but I am quite happy with them.

Feedback is welcome!

#1 doesn't work for me as I simply cannot take my off of the out of focus subject in front. #2, the vignette is just too much for my tastes. #3, on the other hand, is very nicely captured and processed. Great tones, conversion, and sharpness on that one.

Thank you all! I have reworked photo 2 a bit. Tighter crop and no vignette. I am still in doubt which version I like better.

I would stick with the first version. I like the composition better the pavement texture, and wheel meeting the road work well the riders turning the bend add visual interest without distracting.
