Taken at this years National 25 mile time trial. One of my favourite shots of the day, as I feel it really conveys the speed of the rider.

Thank you for your comments. Some riders are easier to pan with than others as they keep a smooth line with their back and shoulders, only moving the legs, and luckily this chap was one of them.

Voted a while back, came back to say I know how hard it is to do pan shots and this one is exceptional.

If I could pick out a little "flaw" it would just be the tiny patch of white in the greenery at the top left, but that is me being extremely picky. And I was good and waited until a lot of people had time to view it before mentioning it Wink

It doesn't spoil the image or anything, but I just feel like someone said on one of my puffins shots it would be better not there.

Just to show how picky I'm being I've even created a user-award just for this image - your are the first and likely only recipient as I really haven't seen another pan shot as good as this in a very, very long time here on ePZ

Thank you Cheryl, that is very much appreciated. I've had this image on my pc for a few weeks now, and it's one I keep going back to. Not too popular on my website, as it is the top racers who get viewed the most.
The flaw would be easy to correct in this and now I've spotted it, thank you, it will be going in my copy at home.
Thank you very much for your award Smile

Nice shot, THANK YOU !

BUT the whitebalance has to be corrected (less red)
AND the compression curve should be enhanced too (more black).

...THEN it would be PERFECT.

Whoo hooo! Well done Sarah. A great shot and excellent capture of motion. Expect you've been watching the Tour. Sadly we can't afford to go this year. Felt very nostalgic today as the finish is in Foix near where we stayed and saw Lance in 2005!

All the best
