Hi Ciara, firstly may I say I simply love good old Donegal with a passion. This shot was a excellent idea and oppertunity to capture a wonderful shot. Its good Ciara, but perhaps a little out of focus. Detail and focus really makes a picture and action shots are not always easy. Timing and preparation are so important in all situations. I do hope you dont mind my comments I just hope they help a little. looking forward to seeing more of your work,

Trees in the background are nicely sharp, so it appears to me that the cam focused behind the riders. I like the sense of movement, but would be better if the riders were in focus(they might well be a little blurred still, but in focus, if you understand what I mean). Since you camera was not moving with the action, you may well have got a better shot with a much higher shutter speed too? Moving subjects need practice, and a good approach to this type of shat is to use panning, - i.e focus on a cyclist as he moves into and through the shot, move the camera with him, then press the shutter. You would then have trees blurred and cyclist sharper. Practice, practice and after that, practice.


regards
