    Hi Peter: I really like this shot, especially the way you used your wide-angle to make the cyclist's helmet fit the corner of the frame. Boy, I guess this means you can use wide-angle lenses with DSLRs!

Thanks for your kind comment, Pat. Most people use wide-angle subjects for distant subjects such as landscapes. My favorite use is for close-ups. Yes, there is some wide-angle (perspective) distortion, but often that works fine.

Cheers!

nice point of view, but to much depth of field..
your background gets to much attention.

(sorry about my bad english)

i also like the way the helmet fills the corner.. but I find myself drawn away from the front cyclists to the one who has his arms folded and is looking away..

Hmmm... I'm guessing that this was taken close to Toronto or Southern Ontario? I see a St. Catharines cycling jersey in there plus a Gears jersey both are from the area. MD
Nice shot... *click*

Thanks, Mike. In Kitchener, actually, at last year's road race.
