->> The Manhattan Beach Grand Prix took place just down the road from me so I thought I'd have some fun. This is also the first real test run on my "new to me" 1D.
BTW...Has anybody thought of having them putting their race numbers on their helmets? :)

->> In larger triathlons, the racers are provided a number sticker for the front of their helmet.

It is common for the helmet numbers to be paid for by the official race photography company, as the sole purpose for the numbers is to allow them to ID the bike riders.

Good job! It was a great day for a bike race, don't you think! Great racing and weather, and the beach was just a short trek away. I saw alot of sportshooters out on the course, mostly grey lenses! My images of the race are up on my member gallery,too! Check em out!

->> Ben,
Thanks, I agree with you on the fill flash! Actually there are a few things I will do different next time, this was a learning experience. I'd never even been to a bike race, all new to me! :)

Larry,
Nice shots! I like the tight shot on the racers faces.

->> Nice job! I agree with the above comments about the fill flash. Also, you may want to consider slowing down your shutter speed just a bit to show motion (instead of spokes) in the wheels. Just my two cents!

->> nice work!...
I concur with Emily... I usually shoot around 1/250th for bike-stuff.. (or slower) just to get some wheel blur etc.. but what do i know? I think your stuff looks good.. Fill flash helps too... I usually don't mess with it either unless i'm REALLY thinking about something particular i may have in mind...
anyhow.. nice work!

->> Juliann,

If you are shooting for event photography, keep you shutter speed as high as possible. It's always better to offer sharp, well focused images before you offer anything else.

My favorites are 2 and 10.

I would suggest you shoot tighter. You don't always have to have the entire bike in the shot. I like shots of people's faces especially with their cool Oakleys.

I made some images at a triathlon, but have a criterium coming up soon.
