ONK spring races at Assen. Superstock class front row, just before the warming up lap. Race around the worst sun time, so difficult to get the right exposure. Subjects look good, surroundings way overexposed.

Cropped, resampled, sharpened.

Good color.

This subject has great potential. I would have moved to the right, bent down, and zoomed in more. This would have concentrated on the colorful subjects and excluded the extra people. Would also have been cool to be on the "sunny" side rather than the "shadow" side - but that cannot always be controlled.

I'm not sure what that yellowish spot is on the bottom left. To clean up the picture, you should crop the bottom of the photo, getting rid of the grass too.

Ah this is original! These guys always looks very colorful, you have a good idea here and you captured it well too. What is that yellow blur in the bottom left hand corner? It's a little disturbing, but overall very good.

This is a wonderful example of not just bright color, but of the IMPORTANCE of color.

Extremely distracting background, white spot on the lower left, too (maybe crop below the last bike?) Great variety of colors, but are colors controlling the picture or are they the fortunate accident here?

Good. But the spectators are a distraction. A different angle or a tighter zoom might help

Nice photograph at the races. lots of color here, good idea for the challenge, it's a really busy photograph, a lot of things happening; what's that nasty flash at the bottom right corner of the photo? Could you not have cropped it out? Going to cost you some points, maybe.

Maybe should have cropped it a little tighter. Or zoomed in from a lower angle. Nice shot!

Very nice lineup; line draws my eye across the frame very well. I would recommend cropping out the spot at the lower left corner of the frame (lens flare?)-- spectators also draw away from the overall impact, as well. Overall, though, quite nicely done!

They need more space on the left.

An excellent photo but maybe cropped the lower left corner .The eye is lead right down the line and then around the scene.
