very good shot. I like the blurred spectator saying something to the rider. adds more emotion to his already "emotional" pose of putting the head down and digging deap. the iso noise is there but it's not too bad, actually makes the spectators look cool imo. nice work.

This is very well done, I love the sense of action and the two people in the background. I also absolutely love the shadow from the bike! Great composition here, overall just extremely well done. I'm going to go ahead and give you the -10- I think you deserve :-)

Did well to freeze the 'action' while blurring the background. Nice shot.

I think you did a great job of capturing this sport! would have liked this even more without the distractions in the background...but I am sure you have heard this a least twice before now:) still I like 7

This might have been a little better of a photo if it was taken on the other side of the street for lighting purposes. The calm expression of the rider enhances the appearance of motion.

I love how you froze the primary subject while giving the feeling of speed. Were you in a vehicle when you took this shot?

The motion blur in the background is very effective in isolating the subject and conveying his lonely effort and his concentration. I like the shadow of the bicycle, too, and the overall composition.

Very skillful capture here. A ribbon, or close to it, I'm sure.

Too bad those kids are in the pic. Would be fantastic without them there. Still good. The exposure and panning is perfect.

Excellently panned. Good choice of shutter speed, it's nice to be able to make out some detail of the spectators on the left. Nice composition and crop. Shame about the noise though... could NeatImage have helped? 9

Great panning shot! Wonderful use of natural light! The cyclist's posture says it all! Terrific capture!
