Hi All,

Rattled off a few shots of both the Mens & Womens National Road Races yesterday round the rolling roads of Norfolk. I knew most of the route fairly well as some roads are only a few mins from where I live. Hats off to anyone doing this for a living as you really have to have an idea of what shot you want before they are gone in a flash. Most pleased with number 4 as i had this shot in mind and it turned out ok.

Any feedback appreciated!

4 is neatly done.
I tend to crop when there is an out-of-focus athlete in front of the one who is the effective subject of the picture. eg 5
Out-of-focus behind is fine. I don't assert it makes sense.

All bright, colourful and a great focus in each.
No5, with all in a line is a great image for dynamics

I get exactly what you mean about 5 however i wasn't really happy when i cropped the first rider out as it all became a bit tight and had half an arm of the first rider or it had half of the face of the rider to right so settled with the first rider in the shot.

Thanks, appreciate it!
