My previous high key entry was entitled "High key, low speed".... heh!

Hard to stop the motion of these guys, particularly in a curve, when they're right in front of you, at the wide end of the wide lens. Next time I'll crank the ISO, crank the shutter speed a bit. I did have it set to overexpose by a full stop. But I do like the motion. And I gotta tell you, this was a blast. A bit terrifying in this corner because they are coming right at you, but fun!

My 400th entry. This will not score well, isn't symbolic in any way, and isn't something I "normally" shoot. But I learned a lot from the outing and truly enjoyed the process. So I guess that's good enough for the 400th entry, yes? (Oh, and it is in B&W, there's that!)

Ah - checked the score. 5.1111 Here's hoping it hangs on to the five! Perhaps I should bitch about the voters and how they are dragging me down!

Heh! Nah. I'm very pleased with the photo just the same. Don't mind the score a bit!

Post challenge: Ah yes, back down where I belong in the sub-50% category. :-)

I didn't vote that challenge, but if I had, you know bike shots always appeal to me. Enjoyed your race shots posted on Facebook.

What? Seriously. Way better image than some that scored much higher. Sorry about the score, it's still a great shot.

Great motion!

I may or may not be voting, so please do not equate my comment with any score.

Awesome shot, Deb. You really put yourself in harm's way for this.
