Wow, that first photo may be the best yet -- Levi with his hands in transition and the fan running toward him. How did you get that shot and that great one hugging his girl/wife?

I don’t know what you do for a day job but you really have a talent at photography.

Great pictures.

Is it my imagination, or is Levi's face is starting to look like Lance's?

You should send that last one to Levi.....

It's rare to capture such a moment on film so well in hectic post race conditions, he might enjoy having it.

That's what I noticed almost a year ago at the Tour of California press conference:

Excellent pictures! Last shot is really good. I think sending that one to Levi is a great idea.

I've always thought he was sort of a Mini-Lance.

^^Cancellara could almost pass for a track racer if he had a bit more arm size. Nice shots.

Your pics are very good. Your capture of the motion and emotion is excellent. You also did a great job on the compostion. Very Nice!

Those shots are pretty good too. I think you need to up the exposure just a little bit. I think they are slightly too dark. But if you shoot raw, this shouldn't be an issue to adjust.

But the motion is captured really nice.

His Exposure was fine and his Pan was EXCELLENT! The Pic of Levi was a little strong but I would bet my camera setup that Levi would pay for the one consolation shot Ed took and the pan shot umd shot. Great work!
