I took this photo during the recently held international cycle race in Muscat, Oman, called “Tour of Oman”. The race has always managed to attract the world’s top cyclists and teams, and has become key to the start of the racing season. For me, it was a wonderful opportunity to try out the art of panning. Got this shot during the last few laps near Muttrah Corniche.

Starting from a hotshot point and shoot camera in late 80s to a Nikon FM10 film camera in late 90s, Sanjoy Sengupta used to get 32 out of 36 exposure wrong to a day of digital cameras like canon Powershot A520 and a decent hybrid version canon SX20IS, which were with him wherever he went to capture some beautiful moments, moments of life which would be cherished forever. Then when he finally could not resist the alluring pricy Nikon DSLR, his actual learning started from that moment.
