In the women's elite road race at the Apple Triathlon.
I wanted the riders angling to make a sharp turn but the background was filled with colourful and
distracting elements, so I chose to convert this image to monochrome.

1/1600s, f/3.2, ISO 400, 51mm, +1/3 EV full exif

I agree with our friend Lee...she just pops out from the background. (I think we have had this discussion)

Love the intimate point of view, a real in your face look at the determination of these athletes!
