Given the crowds you did very well to get the shots at all. Good sense of movement in both the riders and the crowd. The sign on the road is great and I can see 2 more bike signs - intended or not, it adds to a very good photo in difficult conditions. I did think about going toward Yorkshire but it would have cost quite a bit in diesel and the like for a narrow window of opportunity - I would have liked to have taken a panoramic shot of the Dales as the peloton wended their way through (at speed!). Although I am well past my 'use-by date' I still cycle for fun, but these guys travel at twice my speed and over 5 times the distance up-and-down Dale - crikey!!
Was this the 'brakes on' moment after your last beautiful shot. The photo really does show the hare as a beautiful creature which few of us get near. I have to say if this was my shot (along with the last) I would be entering them into every top competition I could. The light, composition and technical detail is as good as it gets for me. Brilliant. Chris
Moira, if you have seen my UA before the text or a vote, it is because I have had to rewrite my comments again having lost the page! I arrived at the first photo from a modification you had done on a 'trials' motorbike and couldn't make head or tail of the photo; I just didn't see the face. Then I saw the second photo and it all made sense. The chef with the Trex hat brought back memories of shopping with my mum in the 50s, so many shops had such figures I recall.
Tim, I like this photo. I agree that Cadwell is a lovely race track but I find it quite challenging; I think you have done really well with this shot with your different take on the 'Mountain' shot. Was this the Auto 66 meeting? I am sure I saw you there (not many photographers on that day) and, perhaps, also at the sand-racing event at Mablethorpe. I like your shot from that meeting as well. Chris
A cracking shot - version 2 for me; was this taken at Brands on the bend before the long straight beyond the bridge? The depth of field and focus are spot on. Did you allow the bike to move into the frame and allow the shutter speed to freeze the action, or did you pan? I have yet to get one so sharp I have to say; hope to try harder this season! Chris
Great to see you back with your marvellous photos of butterflies. Disappointing for me though, as having the same combination of kit that you took this shot with now means there is no excuse for me not to achieve similar excellence; however, my 100mm lens doesn't have USM so that could be the reason for my failures. Look forward to seeing more. Chris
