Default With apologies to vvcarpio - Bicycle on Second Ave.

I found vvcarpios shot inspiring, so I took my own...

"Nice Shot" is a well known technical expression, which I just looked up in the dictionary. I can live with it...

Dave,
This shot has two issues which keep it from being good IMO:
1) shot from behind - people's backs are rarely as interesting as their faces
2) way too much blur. Get the shutter up to about 1/30 and work on your panning technique

Improving those two areas would help make this type of shot more interesting.

Thanks John - Showing a face would indeed make this more interesting. But the rest of the shot was deliberate - I like the glitter of the spinning wheel, and the isolation of the subject. I think I got carried away and cropped it way to tight - Here's the way the image is stored on my drive.



With my machine the tradeoff in color is to great at ISO 3200, but I'll see what I can do with ISO 1600. I err, really don't think the problem is with my panning technique...

Not at 1/6 of a second...

Having taken pictures of bikers myself I think it's hard what Dave pulled. So, Dave, I still think it's a, um, "nice shot"...
