Action from last weekend's road races at Cookstown. Awkward spot for metering as the trees left quite a lot of the road in the shade, yet I was shooting into the sun.

Manual focus
1/2000 sec @ f4
ISO400

Camera:Canon EOS-1D MKII N
Lens:300mm f4

It looks like he's got a split in his front tyre. Great timing Steven.

Nicely done! In dodgy areas I always shoot in RAW and composite the images after, as you would with HDRI, though I never knew I was doing something so technical! I find RAW very forgiving, and it could have helped you to bring up the shadows a bit and keep the detail.

Perfectly captured though - just hovering there! Really shows the speed he was going and the skill needed to get such a clean shot.

Click,
Phil

Impeccable timing. And I like the inclusion of the two onlookers - they help to emphasize the context.
