Taken in Paynesville on 31st July 2011 at the Tour of Gippsland. It was a perfect day for racing, very little wind and the sun was shining and considering criterium racing is treacherous with wet roads (or called off altogether), it was fantastic…..The riders were going very very fast and so I was excited to be able to replicate that feeling in my shots.

Love the way the speed and determination is captured. I love cycling and love getting a real feel in my shots….:)

    Great shot, I’m not a cyclist but can feel the speed and determination in this shot! Well done!!

  • Thanks for that…….I tried lots of shutter speeds and places to sit and take pics as the backgrounds were very picturesque

    Hehehe, alternative title suggestion “Form 1 Lane” … as most racing cyclists tend to do in a crit ;o) … great motion capture Jude, love the look of all that very expensive carbon whizzing by, against the tranquil calm of the background water!! :-D

  • LOL…that does sound like the name of one of your shots……….but also a very good name….maybe I will change it……..I do like it, you are not on commission are you?

    I love the way you can almost read the bike wheel logos :) :)

  • That was the part that stood out for me thanks fixie…….So I kept playing with the shot and muted the colors as the white logos were what I thought were the best bit!

  • Maybe I will pay the sign a commission…….nah………..hey are you still riding?

    Nah, just the Beemer, once a week only at the moment :o/
    … M-F work is just 5mins away, just not worth the effort to gear up
    and warm up the bike, for only a 5min ride :o((

  • IT is too cold…I am not an early morning rider at the moment. Anyway I leave for work on workdays at just befre 7 so I would have to ride in the dark….I am home by 4 and there is still some light……PS…I changed the name of this print……lol…..It is very good. Thank You.

    nice motion blur :O)

  • Thanks Di, it was on a fast section of the course, so I tried a few different shutter speeds so the motion blur wasnt out of control.
