My first entry, so be gentle!

Taking on the bank of the River Cam here in Cambridge. Bikes are something of a specialty here in Cambridge so a fitting first submission I suppose :)

Not a lot done to the image, RAW import, crop and tone in Lightroom, USM, resize and save for web in editor.

Not expecting to score a lot but I'm here to learn and would appreciate any constructive criticism. Thanks.

Greeting from critique club

Hi, I think that isn't a bad idea. the composition and the exposure are good. I think that this image have two problems. the first is the background, too much distracting, a better out of focus was better. you can obtain this with the focal length near 55 mm and with the subject near the camera. the second problem is that there isn't a strong point in the image, there are the bicycles hence the image meet the contest but there isn't an action or an something that the bikes do.
Sorry for my ugly english :)

Best Regards

Oooh, skinny tires hangin' with fat tires, too. Would like to have seen more of the bikes, but I like the idea - nice time of day from the light, too.
