I love bicycling shots. Theres always a ton of vibrant colors, tons of action anddemonstrable intensity in the participants' faces. I like the 1st shot, just crop out that ugly cone and next time try taking that shot while sitting down. I think you may find that adifferent perspective will add a whole new dimension to that photo. Great idea with the pan shot, unfortunately theyre very difficultesp at really slow shutter speeds. Also, watch your exposure whenplayingat those slow speeds. Dont fret. If I shoot 20 s l o w pans only one will be worth anything, its difficult to pull off but when you do, its like magic.One other suggestion that you may play around with is to pop a flash for fill. Youll be amazed at the "pop" youll get, esp with all the vibrant colors. My last suggestion would be to zoom in on the riders' faces, esp during difficult track sections.
