What do you think? Do I need to crop it more? Thanks

The gray bag on the left is the most distracting thing in the shot so finding a way to crop that out would be good.

I like the fact that there is a little motion blur in the wheels much better than completely freezing everything. Did you get any more shots on the day?

I'm with Mark.

I guess if you could do it over I'd like to see more of the wheels and no grey bag. But given the shot you have I'm not sure how you could crop it to eliminate the bag without totally eliminating the wheels.

Thanks for the advice everyone. This was from the "Tour Of California" race. I will try to crop out the bag.Here are a couple more.

The other one, I just noticed that I caught a water bottle going through the air.

Nice job Kanji! I love all the colors in cycling. Of the two shots I prefer the last one because I can see the road as it winds away into the background.It helps guide my eyes back to the center, if that makes sense...lol...It adds a little extra to the shot, whereas the first one couldve been taken by any bystander with a camera. I realize you were trying to get the whole field but try a close crop on just the leaders in that first pic and see how it looks, of course itd ruin any chance of an enlargement but ZI think the second would be better if that was your intention. As far as the Greenie, I also like the wheels to be blurred instead of frozen. Its funny and frustrating how a little gray bag cankeep a good shot from being an awesome shot. Id love to see more if you have any!
