More Bike Racing.  I don't know what it is, perhaps it's the challenge of getting a good shot, or just the thrill of watching the race, but I love to photograph bike racing.  My best shots are taken with my 17-55 2.8 lens at about 3.5  at 55mm.  The best angle always seems to be when you shoot low up to the rider's face.  Tell me what you think.

I Love Photography.  I love capturing a great image, smile or gesture.  I recently had the pleasure of capturing a a portrait of my niece,  of a bike race,  of my pregnant niece, of my sister and her puppy and a few days later of my beautiful daughter.  I did spend a lot of time editing but the results are worth it. I am not a naturalist.  I believe a lasting photo should have everything done to it to make it as pleasing as possible.  Editing to clear skin tone, fix backgrounds, lighten the foreground and to fix color temperature are all great techniques a photographer should learn how to master.
 Below you will find before and after photos. Enjoy
