Never done any cycling shots so had a look to a local event. Got a spot pretty much on my own. Popped the 1D4 in my paws, 24-105 some Lee filters 2stop hard grad, a tweek of the focusing and just over a second burst hand held. Amazingly, it worked. Did a few others to. Wanted a few slow shutter shots but had to go home due to work.

Good work, I like the composite shots :)

Any chance of posting the other two in color? I don't particularly like B+W for cycling - it's such a colorful sport!

B&W is great! Look at the first B&W pic. If it were in colour your eye would wander and not stay on the cyclist.

Thanks guys. The event took place in the most beautifull area imaginable for cycling, the wild moors of County Durham in northern England. It was once a place where a lot on lead mining took place hundreds of years ago but as the mines closed the area got to grow wild and is now the biggest Grouse moors in Europe. Its wild and desolate but now looks totally like nature intended. Its hilly and the cyclists have to work damm hard. Its a route that goes round the second biggest man made resevoir in the UK Derwent Resevoir. #

Great shots!  Upon first glance I thought that the first photo was of a tight peloton, until I looked more closely at the photo and read your post.  Nicely done.  I wonder if you could do this sort of service for pro cyclists and runners so they can more closely examine their form?

First of all Mick, thanks for posting these in color. I can see rpt's point but find myself exploring the color pictures longer - more details better bring out the story. Besides I like the contrast of the synthetically colored cyclists with the earth-tones and gray overcast of the surrounding landscape :)

Great idea to feature some cycling shots - and those first set of images are impressive to say the least.

Time for some more?

Great shot.
Interesting to combine B&W and color. Especially after the little discussion on previous posted photos here in this thread.
I must say, it works very well.

Thanks! The image looks good in full colour but I was looking to enter it in a 'seeing red' competition and making the background monochrome really made the rider standout. It also negated distracting elements such as the guy walking in the background looking straight at the camera :)

What can I say?  It's February.  It's Minnesota.  It's fat tire racing!
