Thank you. APS-C format only.... No tripod also - but rather sweaty bike 
gloves and breathed upon bike glasses. Often also a breathed upon finder 
glass when I carry the camera in the breast pocket. 
The workflow happens in the Epson RAW converter mostly - b&w color filter 
(week 6: yellow, in week 5 also a Leica 13352X circular polarizing filter), 
exposure correction and de-vignetting (mostly very moderately), some 
contrast fiddling (usually s-curve). No sharpening there. In PS I just 
resize and gently unsharp mask it (66, 0.3, 1). I'm getting away from 
oversharpening images - a sharp lens does not need it. I just usm what went 
lost in the resizing. 

Btw. I - a propos software color filter: it is astonishing, how different 
yellow, orange and red react on different skies and different days. Once 
yellow darkens most, sometimes orange, sometimes red. I could impossibly 
guess it in advance consistently just by observing the sky/light situation. 
Postproduction color filtering is really a plus in the digital world.

Btw. II biking is much more fun when combined with shooting. The bike is 
your tele, not your legs... Bike to the shadow side...
