The Cyclist

By Paintman
This was from my first ever go at sports photography and with the Canon 6D, a camera not suited to fast action. The combination of the 6D and the 100-400mm mkii worked very well and produced really sharp photos. If I had used the 7D I owned a few months ago I think 90% would be muddied and virtually unusable. I hated that camera! I love the 6D thoughSmile

The horizon is purposefully tilted at a jaunty angle for creative, dynamic effectGrin

V2 and V3 are from the same day.
