Great shot. I love how much sharpness you have gotten in the rider while panning.

Excellent panning, works so well in this shot! I can only think of one suggestion for improvement: there's a tiny bit of grass (and a bit of a white line) in the top left-hand corner of the image. I find it slightly distracting, and since it doesn't seem to have any real function in the image, and there's some space to play with at the top of the image, it would be quite easy to just crop it off. But otherwise a great shot - much better than my own panning attempts!

Or clone it out, I should have added.
