Like this it works so well in mono the rider is crisp and sharp and I like how she is placed in the frame Would like to be capable of taking an image of this quality if this is before you practice I can't wait to see next years Tour de France shots - Elizabeth xx

Great cycling shot. It is much harder to get good cycling photos on the level than it is on hills.....and she has that classic look of a cyclist's determination. I ride (but cannot get close to the speed that Tour riders average---that is astounding). We hear that much of what makes a great racer is the ability to endure pain. She has a bit of that look. Pain and determination.

Good mono contrasts and selective focusing are what makes this image sing!

Beautifully framed and captured Les. The out of focus riders behind lead the eye nicely through the top half of the shot.
