Challenge: 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: 2012
Camera: Canon EOS-50D
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
Location: Grand Prairie, Texas
Date: Feb 5, 2012
Aperture: 20.0

Shutter: 1/8
Date Uploaded: Feb 8, 2012

Shot during a club ride to and from Dallas for Superbowl Sunday. Clubs from around the DFW area rode to and met in downtown Dallas for lunch and a drink prior to the game. I didn't ride this one, but drive sag support and photographed the ride. Worked on my panning techniques a little on the way back. Stopped at this particular location especially because I thought the colorful storefronts in the background might add some interest.

Not expecting this to do as well as my similar sports entry is doing. The light did not seem to work with me as well for this one and I couldn't get as much clarity or visual punch out of it. Still pretty happy with it, but only expecting it to come in with the pack.

Performed as expected

Nice motion blur and still a clear point of focus on his right sleeve/hand. B&W was a good choice and the title works. Good job.
