Wednesday 19.08.2009 was a big day for cycling fans in Oslo. Lance Amstrong participated in the Oslo Grand Prix.
The Oslo Grand Prix was arranged for the first time. 1,5 hours through the streets of Oslo on a 1 kilometer criterium track. The city was packed with spectators and Thor Hushovd won a big victory.
On Twitter we spoke about meeting and shooting the event, so I got
together with Oddne, Øystein and Stian and found a fine spot in one of the corners.
Yesterday I uploaded photos of Thor Hushovd, Lance Amstrong today and Kurt-Asle Arvesen one of the next days :))
Check out the other photos of Lance Amstrong
These guys ride incredible fast around the corner, panning my 40D on
1/15 sec shutterspeed was enough to blur everything out. The flash was
then used to freeze the rider :))
Color, saturation and such was enhanced in Lightroom, a little retouching in Photoshop and that was it :))
Comments and critique are as always welcome. Let me hear your opinion, why do you like this, or even better, how would you approach this scenery. Give me your thoughts... If you can't find anything to critique, a simple "nice" is cool too :))
