Glad to see you posting, Harj. Some excellent pictures there. Once again capturing the look and feel of the street scene at an event. I really like the way you were able to capture shot #3, with the low angle as the big wheel racers are coming through a turn. Well done.

Good shots Harj. I too like the penny-farthing racers, and I especially like the look on the middle rider's face - a lot of pain and hard work etched into it.

Can't think what attracted you to the elite women, though.

There's just something about the elite women racing that I can't quiet put my finger on

Next time I go to any event like that where its all street based its safer to wear steel to caps... getting my foot driven over by one of the team cars loaded with drivers and bikes wasn't a pleasent experience.

I did wish afterwards that i took the 35-100F2 to get some close up shots of the racers .. but thats for the next event.

The E3's definitely on its way out - looks as if the AF module is failing.

Fantastic shots Harj, very nice colors and control of noise, the 3rd shots is my favorite.
