I agree - a very nice first attempt. Nice color and sharpness.

A small thought for future work:

1. To me I like this angle the best out of all the shots but the grass detracts from it a bit - so, if possible try not to shoot from a vantage point that is partially obstructed.

3. Really very nice - good pan! My preference is if you're shooting from a forward angle that the object appear to be moving 'into' the frame rather than 'out of' the frame - in other words leave more background in front of the rider rather than behind. with the current crop, the empty space behind the rider draws my eye as much as the rider

Still - very good work. Makes me want to try shooting cycles myself

Well done!

Thanks for the comments
John I see what you mean by the grass being distracting , I liked it because the bike and rider seem to rise from the grass
This is one of my favorites because of the sense of speed (focus is alittle off due bike closing in very fast )
