Very artistic and for lack of a better word "cool". I like the colors here and the rule of thirds is put to good use. Great Photo

Thanks so much for the feedback Steve, Lyn, Pat and Brenda! This abstract stuff is my favorite thing to try so I'm always happy when I get a good result.

Brenda....your "Creative Nature and Outdoor Photography" book was my BIBLE when I was first learning! I'm flattered by your praise :-)

Wow! Thanks so much to all of you for your comments! They made my day :-)

Some of you asked how I achieved this effect. I used a slow shutterspeed and while I panned with the cyclist, I zoomed my lens at the same time. Lots of practice helps get some good results but it's a very "hit or miss" process. It's so much fun, though!

Thanks again for your feedback :-)

That is a dream shot, you know, one you dream of getting some day. Awsome job, I see you use the best when it comes to equipment. I'm a Canon fan too! Just got the new 30D. I love it. Thanks for the insight into how you got the shot.

Thanks, Wayne. I've had a few offline emails asking for my camera settings. Here they are:

Canon 70-300 IS DO lens at 180mm. f/29, 1/13th of sec, -2/3 compensation, ISO 100. It was a bright day so I was using a variable stop neutral density filter in order to get the slow shutter speed.

As I mentioned, Panning and Zooming at the same time takes lots of practice but it's really fun to see what you come up with.
