    I absolutely love the wide one. Interesting, I think the normally ugly barriers are a nice lead-in line for this shot.

    Nice work. #2 is my fav. Cyclocross is TOUGH. I was never any good, but I always enjoyed it and the races are like a big party. Good times.

    I LOVE shot #3 - I like the details that pop with this image - the mud stained face, the gloves with bones on them, downturned grimace of exertion. Well done Macro - enjoy your work :)

    Always a good time to be had at bike races. Best I ever placed in Â’cross was sixth. The look on the subject's face brings back too many aches and pains! Sweet stuff. :thumbup:
