The Three Chasers

The Three Chasers

This shot was one was taken during my second visit of the season to the amateur cycle racing which takes place on the local circuit of Goodwood Motor Race Circuit. They hold these on Tuesday evenings which makes for some beautiful light and colours if the weather plays ball. Personally the cycling I do is Touring and Time Trials, racing against the clock. I only take pictures of mass start racing rather than taking part.

The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a Tamron 28-200mm zoom at 140mm. They go by pretty fast and even at 250th of a second there was still some movement in the background. The image is a bit of practice for my visit next week to the Tour de France in northern France.

Edits were carried out in RAW to improve clarity and vibrance. Further adjustments were made using Topaz DeNoise and then more detail brought in with Topaz Clarity.

One niggle I found with the original image was that the rear tyre of the closest cyclist was just off the bottom of the picture. I corrected that by expanding the canvas space and using free transform and the clone tool. For exactly how to do that see my Blog writeup on a different picture at http://edwinjonesphotography.com/blog/2014/4/adding-extra-space-to-an-edge-in-photoshop
