Ok, probably going to regret leaving this in as it's not as sharp as I envisioned (motion panning is tricky!). I love his expression, even though it is blurred a little. In a hurry - last chance to get a shot before vacation and the sun is setting fast. :) I predict a 5.15 on this.

Terrific. (But I'm a sucker for little kids). The motion blur and the child's concentration are great. If only the child and bike were a little sharper.

Made me smile! I like the motion - and yes, riding bikes will do that to you, regardless of age!

Ideally the subject would be sharper (for my tastes), but that said, nice colours and motion blur. Well done.
