Nice pic. Anyhow, just wanna know how the 300mm f/4 lense responded to D70 when u took this shot: -

1. Did you set to Continuous 3f/s or it was just a single shot, & was it set to Dynamic AF or etc.
2. Did u use a tripod for this shot?

By looking at the shot, I would say that the sharpness was at the rider\'s helmet (see the red stripe) & not at his sunglasses.
Just think about to get this lense for my collection... if it is good.
Thanks

One of my top picks - nice! I like the dof and colors. The capture of the expression also works for you ! Good job!

Seems like I've seen this shot 100 times, but it always impresses me. Real excellent timing for a shot not as easy as some may think.

8 - Good shot, good character, shows the effort and endurance. Good mix of bold colors. Criticism; slight rotation perhaps and a different crop. More focus. Maybe slighter tighter angle to get more detail in the face.

Very nice shot. I would have probably cropped it larger, but I think maybe I would have been wrong to do so. Great job.

Good perspective, colour, exposure and composition however I feel that just a little more DOF is needed to provide just a tad more definition in the trailing riders.

Great composition. You've caught the lead rider in perfect focus and blurred the back field just right. This photo really works.

I like this how ever a little more depth would have been nice while still keeping it shallow.
