Ada Bike Criterium

Mike got in touch yesterday and wanted to go shoot the grain elevator in Lowell for a project he's doing. We met and ended up taking the back way into town. Part way there we came across a bike race in Ada. Of course we had to stop.

It was a great day for the bikers, relatively comfortable for August in Michigan. The sky was beautiful, with a few clouds. Since the course was heavily lined with trees, it was hard getting a good exposure that worked in the sunny areas and the shadows.

I tried shooting at a low aperture for a shallow depth of field for most of the time. I'm not sure I like the way they turned out for the most part.

I'm also not sure what a "Bike Criterium" is. I guess I'll have to look it up...
