1) practice with, and gain experience in, Focus Trapping. (A technique where you use the "Catch In Focus" setting on the camera with a manual focus lens to have the shutter fire only when the camera confirms that the selected focus point actually has something in focus)
2) get a few decent shots of elite level cyclists "Frozen" in the moment.
3) have fun with a couple of fellow Pentaxians while playing with our cameras.
I think I achieved all three aims! ;-) ON with the show!
I tended to reject shots with heads down, but this guy's leg is too beautiful to not include.
I really liked both the juxtaposition of riders going both directions, as well as this guys expression.
