    Here are some pics taken in Luxemburg-city on the prologue of the "Tour de Luxembourg"

    any comment on how to improve my technique for these kind of shots are highly appreciated... This was my first time shooting a bike race....all the shots were taken at relatively low light conditions as the event was held in the evening...
    the first ones were taken with a fast shutter speed, the last one's with a slower shutter speed...

    what suits them better?

    Thank you for looking!

    For these shots, I really like the slower shutter speed better. 4,5&8 seem to capture the intensity very well.

    The cobblestone in the first pic give the shot an almost fish-eye effect. Pretty cool.

    Poor guys do look tired... oh well...back to being fat :D

    The slow ones - they are in another league from the first ones.
    I like them!

    The slow shutter ones are so dynamic and so nicely give the feeling of speed! I really like these ... and you very clearly managed to get their faces in focus, that is really good. Panning is something that I wish I would master but I don't! You do. Really good.
