I really liked this image cropped from the 4×5 image. It is hard to capture the action with a 4×5 rail camera without a viewfinder. I have to set up where I THINK the action will be and hope to catch the image. In this case, I was shooting ISO-100 speed film and got just a slight amount of blur in the riders, but I still liked the story this image told with the peloton of riders up front and the lone rider in the rear trying to catch up to the peloton. From my experience, once you get dropped from the peloton it is extremely difficult to catch up again.
