comment Camera set up for mountain bike photography
I will be riding with the bikers and then stopping to take shots at sections, hence it will live in my rucksack. Budget is no object, but if I can get value option vs no holds barred would be good.

comment Camera and lens to take travelling by bicycle that will produce pro-quality images?
@jwenting real life experiences are always more enlightening than generalisations :)

@jwenting fair point. This is kind of a profound question of aesthetic qualities of an image separate from its value as a capitalist product and whether these days anyone can tell any difference anyway.

@jwenting thanks for stating the obvious there.

Very nice answer @mattdm . I remember somewhere along the line someone saying that Cartier Bresson probably would have used the D40x with a prime lens :) which is why I then bought exactly 50mm f/1.8. Maybe sticking with the N40x is fine. What about NEX 7 (although the video overheats in warm temperatures) or what would be a more 'pro' camera that isn't heavy up from the D40x?

comment How do I plan a successful set of travel photographs?
@RussellMcMahon This was an open question really. I really like your last comments. I spent 2 years wandering by bike taking photos, and I walk often in London taking photos. Do you have a site I can take a look at?

Sounds ok, but maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree here. I thought that some serious travel photographer might have some kind of workflow or strategy to share...

@RussellMcMahon do you want to add why otherwise your comment doesn't add anything.

comment How should I categorise my photos in Lightroom?
I guess a lot of the answer to my question is how I will present my photos. E.g. are these photos for an exhibition or a book? And interesting point about the DB schema and in general how workflow evolves, and yet sometimes you get stuck in a way of doing things...
