    I went early this year so I could shoot the saturday afternoon and sunday morning practice sessions. It's hard to get a good position when there is 30,000 people at the race. :wink: took my 300f4 this year. harsh lighting conditions, though. the panning shots (9&10) were at 1/250. the rest were from 1/1600 to 1/2500.


    'new kid on the block' Mike Alessi pulled the holeshot in the first moto

    a couple laps later, he found out what it was like to race with the big boys when he was passed by RC.:biggrin:

    Very well done Jim, love the airborne mud. Can you give a few EXIF data hints (shutter speed in particular)?

    Thanks, Biggs. pic #3 is my favorite from the weekend. there were no press photographers where I was to get that shot like I did. I'm thinking about contacting MXA magazine and see if they're interested in it. :biggrin:

    Thanks, Scott. it was a pretty good wekend. :biggrin:
     
  14. Looks good. :biggrin:

    They must get different girls for each event because those weren't the two that was at the Budds Creek event.

    Did you get RC's autograph on Sunday?

    No. considering the size of the crowd, I figured it would have been next to impossible. after I thought it over, I was happier with Decoster's autograph. grew up idolizing him. I'm old school. :wink:

    plus, I didn't want to miss the morning practice sessions.

    next week, I'll post some pics of the little kids MX that I shot there on friday.

    50 and 65cc bikes. :biggrin:

    Great shots! Love the colors!

    With all the mud and dirt flying, it almost feels like I'm there.

    The last shot is pretty good too.:wink:

    Thank you. I'm quite happy with what I got that weekend. :biggrin: I'm still working on what to print for the album. good thing my local lab is running a sale on 8x10s this week. :wink:

    Wow very nice captures, nipprdog. These images really make me miss my bike!

    As for the Monster Energy girls, no thanks... I prefer a little more meat on my women! :wink:
