A group of bikers from Clonmel before starting off on a charity bike run.

Too much dynamic range. The one fellow's head evaporates into the sky.  I'd crop down a fair bit. Bottom half is well exposed and I like the tonality od the leathers.

Thank you Tim. Yes indeed the cropping was meant to serve another purpose which no longer exists, it looks awkward with the horizontally arranged subject mass clashing with the vertical frame but I thought it worth posting as a study of genuine characters sharing a real sense of camaraderie. The poor fellows head was unfortunately of the same reflectance as the grey sky's luminance so there was little to be had out of it although an actual print shows some distinction between the two, the web really is the worse place to display photographs!
