    Ok so I've lurked around on other peoples pages long enough to finally put a picture out there for a bit of C&C.
    Recently I've started to do some sports photography in Cycling
    just if anyone has any advice or anything cause I really would have no idea how I am going in this area as sport means escaping my safety zone of studio work.

    not a bad shot, my biggest problem with this is that youve cut off your subject..

    The good news is that your subject is in focus and the background is blurred out. So you did a great job there!

    Good depth of field
    Nice exposure,
    Good focus,
    If it were me I would have taken the picture in portrait to get the rider and the bike entirely and perhaps eliminate some of the background (even though it is nicely oof)

    I agree...portrait orientation would have been nice.

    Would have also been nice if the front rider was more to the right with the pack coming up from the left...the rider on the right is a distraction.

    Same as everyone else:

    1. Rider's foot is cut-off (big no no in photography)
    2. And he's dead center (you want him to the left or right)

    But overall it's a great action shot. It looks like it should be in a magazine.
