    Wow! Excellent panning shot! I like how you captured the one rider clearly and then the varying degrees of blur of the other riders. Did you use a tripod for this? Love it!

    great shot S..I used to raqce those contraptions..criteriums are usually quite fast and dangerous indeed...for those not familiar with terminology, a criterium is a race of 'laps' around a certian a city block or two...Great shot...
