Took a day trip to Boston today-a beautiful early Fall day in New England.
Had no idea they had a professional bike race around Boston's Government Center. Ist DS, DA 16-45, ISO 400 F5 @ 1/80

I can feel the wind, hear the spokes.
Fantastic action shot, well done.

I know nothing about bike racing-but these guys were really moving-serious racing.

DMJJR: This image really conveys a sense of motion and action! If you don't mind an observation: I find the blur in the buildings in the far background a bit disconcerting to my eye. Was this shot taken hand held? If so, it may have resulted from a bit of camera shake due to the lower shutter speed vs a result of shallow DoF. Anyhow, just my humble opinion and not intended to to be anything other than that!

Very nice shot! The motion blur conveys the speed nicely, and the color is wonderful. The obvious vanishing point in the photo draws your eye into the action.

Very nice!
I have a poster at work very similar to this, only the photographer caught them coming around a corner towards him. With the shutter speed he used some of the bikers were frozen and some had the motion blur, plus there was a slight mist falling and all the roads were wet making the colors reflect all the more. You did good for a hand held shot, a tripod would have made this perfect!

Have been in packs like that (of course, much further back!) - and your photo really captures the feeling quite well. Thanks for sharing!

Very creative shot! Sometimes I tend to much towards the literal and discard anything that is not sharp and focused and forget so many other interpretations can be achieved with a camera.
