What I did on my Saturday: NSMBA 7th Ripper race photos

I went out today to take photos of the NSMBA’s North Shore Ripper Race, 7th Ripper. I was up very early after not getting much sleep last night. However, I think it turned out well – at least I’m happy with the results.

Here’s the Flickr Photoset:

    what was going on with the first image above that produced the motion blur on the background, but not all of the background? I’m trying to figure out how that happened, but it’s just confusing me…

      You know, I’m not really sure… I took around 200 during the race, and that one was among the longer exposure (like 1/60th or so?) with fill flash – maybe I was twisting the camera strangely, since she was above me?

      If you mean the cedar branches in the top left corner, those are above her head so they’re at the same DoF as the rider…
