Thanks for your kind words.
The line under the wheels are the kurbstones. The line isn't straight because I held the camera at an angle to create an angled line. When you shoot it straight on, the scene looks flat and dull. This way you create a bit of depth and flow trough the frame.
It's not hard to straighten it out but it looks a lot duller.

Amazing shot - the shutter speed and aperture was set perfectly. Incredible detail in the rider, great motion on the wheels and blurred background. You HAVE to put this one on DPCPrints.


Thanks.
I might try DPC prints. The thing that held me back with all my MC shots (I also have similar MotoGP work) is the portrait right of the riders. I don't know how DPC will handle that, but I can try. If you want a print of this let me know. I will try to put it up at DPC or maybe make one myself on good paper if you are seriously interested.

This is an awesome photograph - and I have no interest in motorbikes. However, it would probably get DQ'd from a challenge ... due to the no add text rule. ;>þ
