Addicted to MX

  1. Okay, so I go back out to the MX track today and they're having a cross-country event. I had an absolute blast! I thought that the bright sunlight was going to make it very difficult to shoot, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I did about 300 shots today and these are my favorite 5 or so....





  2. #4 totally kicks butt :)

    Well done, Wes.

    hope you made a sale on #4. :wink:

    it's worthy. :biggrin:
  8. Okay, I gotta ask.... what is so appealing about the 4th image? Don't get me wrong - I'm very happy with all of them, but the one that I thought would get the most comments is #1. The pose of the rider, the kids on the hill, and the overall composition of the shot showing how high he got are the things that I find compelling. Like I said, I've very happy with all of the shots posted but what makes #4 stand out? If I can figure that out then I can go for that kind of shot more often. Thanks to all that have responded!

    BTW - I submitted the first shot for a photo contest AFTER I cloned out the guy in the lower left corner. I may go ahead and submit #4, too.
  9. Nice photos...:biggrin:

    I like 5th the best, for some reason. It's got a cool unconventional framing.
  11. I agree, 5th is my favorite,
    #4 while I like, I can't say I get as excited about as most people on here, And it is a great arial shot, (And I know how hard those can be to get) I think #5 has better focus on the rider itself, and the background lends to the picture more.
