    Here are a few shots I liked from the last few weekends of shooting. Feedback and criticism are appreciated as I'm always trying to improve.

    Hello nice work ! . This is what I think ; photograph number 2 is similar to 1, so I will remove it from the serie , the same goes for picture number 5 which is similar to 7. And the last one should be better in color becasue as you know B & W add dramatism , the guy is smiling. If you have a picture where the pilots are preparing befor the race or a shot when the race is about to start in the goal line, should round this work.

    Your color work is fine but your B&W needs help.

    #5 is not a bad conversion but the subject is not the best for B&W. Too gray but I'm not sure you could make it pop without a whole lot of work.

    #10 is just dull. Way too gray. It needs more contrast and probably will need some dodging and burning as a result.

    I would venture some of your photos lose some of their dynamicism by having the main subject to close to the center of the frame.

    Also, in shots like #1 it would be more dynamic if the wheels weren't stopped and had some motion blur. Less shutter speed is needed when a subject is moving perpendiular to the plane of the image sensor. The trick part, is rendering the rider sharply but still letting the wheels get motion blurred. #1 also seems oversaturated.

    Six, 7, and 8 could have used some strobed light to make the riders 'pop'.

    Photoshop 7 is getting way long in the tooth and it stripped all your exposure EXIF data.
