L3M2AP1 ISO400 150mm f/5.6 1/100th sec Nikon D7100. I know he's moving out of frame, but I think the background riders fill the rest of the frame nicely. Lead rider in focus, clearly it's some kind of event.

L3M2AP1 ISO250 18mm f/5.6 1/40th sec Nikon D7100. A failed panning attempt - she's so close - but I really like the effect created. You can see the sport, there's some cool distortion, the dappled light and the glimpses through the trees. Sense of motion.

L3M2AP1 ISO250 38mm f22 1/50th sec Nikon D90. Ah, the joys of panning.........sooooo many attempts but I really like this one. She's reasonably in focus, the people and tents behind her indicate some kind of event, but they don't detract. Cropped for cleanliness and thirds.

L3M2AP1 ISO200 170mm f/5.6 1/500th sec I'm glad I captured this moment. Winner!I have a series of them with her arms in different positions but this one has the cleanest background.

L3M2AP1 ISO200 200mm f5.6 1/640th sec Nikon D7100. I was trying to do more portrait shots at this point and wanted to capture these riders waiting, when the current racers came around the corner. Adds to the ambience, and it's just luck that the one cyclist was looking right at me.

L3M2AP1 ISO200 200mm f/5.6 1/640th sec Nikon D7100. Handheld, sunny day. I like the line created by the racers. B grade womens' race. they spread out further, the higher level the riders are. I like the colours and reflections in their glasses.

L3M2AP1 ISO200 38mm 1/800th sec f/5.6. Nikon D7100. Handheld on a sunny morning. Shot from the 'hip', dangling from my leg. I took several frames between the bars separating spectators from the racers lined up. I find the black and white draws attention to the lines and curves, rather than the colours distracting the eye.

L3M2AP1 ISO250 22mm f5.0 1/100th sec Nikon D7100. This is one of my favourite candids. She's clearly enjoying herself, you can see other skaters in the background, and those shadows work as leading lines. Great fun. I wish that skater hadn't dumped his jumper there though.

L3M2AP1 'Shooting the Duck' ISO250 50mm f2.8 1/100th sec Nikon D7100. Definitely one of my favourites. I wish I hadn't cropped her hand out in camera but it was a fixed lens. You can see skill and effort here.

L3M2AP1 ISO640 18.. f3.5 1/500th sec Nikon D7100 Proof I know how to increase ISO! Haha  this is cropped in from a wider shot, I'd like to try again sometime but be closer and lower to capture the skater with less business behind. I did use the patch tool in Ps to remove some distracting branches from the top left though!
