Ed is access to the athletes this easy. There is no crowd around the athletes or a perception that they were doing a pose in a fixed photo op. Your lens is not Paparazzi standard. You had some great placement and took full advantage of that placement.

As always excellent pics.

In fact these are better than 99% of photos you see in the cycling press. Hell, any press!

Despite the modern glasses and top, the one at the top of LL looks like it's a portrait of a film star taken in the 60's. Just amazing!

You can probably do the same with your dad's old 35mm camera with a good quality zoom lens, although the Canon 1-D isn't too shabby of a camera

We're so used to a huge depth of field with our little digital cameras that something with a shallow depth of field and nice Bokeh amazes us when we see it.

Good pics, though.

It's not the quality of the image per se that amazes me, it's what has actually been captured, i.e. the moment. Therein lies the skill...
