That picture looks like it was photoshopped. I know it probably wasn't, but it looks so artificial.

Yes its fill flash but I would be reticent to say it was bad. In full sunlight with film you had to punch out the fill flash or you would have BAD shadows. Given the film, the hard light AND the fact that they would have been doing everything manually its pretty damn good.

EDIT: It was hard light in the first shot and poor light in the second where flash was also needed to freeze the action.

I thought only the Germans were allowed to dress like geeks on bike. Sadly, even bike racers were influenced by the disco era.

Why is it sad? I thought people should wear whatever the heck they like.

Nope, you thought wrong, but I forgive you. Let's be friends.
