Hi Jeffery. This is an exciting image with a lot of built in tension. You've captured the sensation of speed with your panning technique and your relatively slow shutter speed. How you managed to get the bike and driver tack sharp I'll never know! Looks like you and Karl have a coincidental theme going this month. I think you did a nice job with the B&W conversion, but I have to say I like the color version better. ...just my preference and not a criticism.   Posted: 04/04/2021 11:09:42

Timing is everything when dealing with such high speed. You nailed it. Great image. I like the monochrome version best.   Posted: 04/04/2021 18:36:50

Jeffrey, I also like the monochrome best. To me, the green in the colour version is a bit of a distraction while the BW has an abstract quality to it that makes the image. As Chuck says, timing is everything - detailed sharpness on the rider and the bike with motion blur giving that sensation of high speed. A skilled capture and a well processed conversion to BW.   Posted: 04/13/2021 15:40:08

Great shot that has a lot of crisp details of the bike and rider. Interesting perspective from higher location.   Posted: 04/19/2021 10:26:06
