Hey TG, as ever a really good series of shots and I love the vibrant colours and great use of slow shutter speeds!! For 1/25th second you have done fantastically to get the sharpness needed.

1, 2 and 3 work really well but I think that the last one is let down as the face is not sharp.

Really good stuff. Love 1 - classic shot and really like 2 because it's different.

Thanks for the comments. ISO 50 is nice, but I amgoing to getsome Neutral Density filters (2x & 8x) so I can use wider apertures at slower shutter speeds.

Your right about the last one Mark, face not as sharp as the others (helmet is sharp). I did like theangle of the bike coming towards you in the shot.

I agree the angle makes it more interesting than just straight side on. I hope to get to try some cycling this year although already starting to run out of time to shoot everything I want to.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Do you sell your work or is it purely for fun (I can't imagine using a 1D Mark IIN just for fun though!!)?

Shoot just for fun, always wanted a 1 Series camera came into a bit of money and made the plunge. Love the 1.3 crop with my wider lenses, large view finder, fps, faster more precise and accurate auto focus (compared to my old 10D & 20D). It's a lot of money especially when you have a mortgage and young family but I don't think I would ever get another chance to buy a 1 Series camera. Just got to get some faster big glass now !!!

That's cool and you are very fortunate to have such a nice toy, also you use it very well! Tell me about the new glass issue, there is always something. I think I am going to go for the Sigma 120-300 f2.8 and then the 300-800 f5.6 if the money is there. What do you have in mind to get?

Mark,

I amlooking at getting the 300mm f2.8 L IS or the Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 want to try the Sigmafirst (not a huge Sigma fan but it is a well priced lens andmost people seem to be happy with it) and one daymaybe get the 400mm f2.8L IS or 500mm f4 LIS.But I am very happy with the results from my 300mm f4 L and 400mmf5.6 L in this focal range for now.

I know you have recentlyswitched over to Canon, What are your current lenses?

Tom.
