Wow, tough lighting you had to deal with. There was a discussion on this awhile ago started by Billy Hurst regarding bright BGs and what to expose for. You did a formidable job under extreme conditions.
I didn't see the discussion. Thanks for the comment! I was told the the action was going to be closer to me so using either a 50 or 85mm prime at F2.5ish was my plan, but it turned out that I needed to go longer so I actually used my kit lens at 135mm most of the time. I expected focus problems but it hung in there for the most part. Within the 2nd rider I knew what settings I was going to need to expose for the rider, but was a little worried about the high ISO combined with wide open on a 60D kit lens.
^+1....have you tried a b&w conversion on any of these?
Nope but it should come out nicely with the contrast... actually the more I turned down the saturation the more I like most of the shots.
Great suggestion and that brings me to another discussion! I have a tenancy to use my work in a "sell it and be done with it" type of way, and most always never promote it as art. I think I need to teach myself to connect a little more on this field but I have worked so long as a product photographer. I think a photography art class is in store for me in the future or something.
