I was out looking for an abandoned building and drove by a motocross track. I stopped and asked if I could take some pictures and they took me on a tour of the track and let me shoot away. I took some photos at the jumps, but I think this is the stronger composition.

My favorite of the bike shots - much more original and fresh. Great work, Bryan.

Here's an outtake. Do you think this would have done better? It does show more "action".

nice picture, but a little bit claustrophobic - could have used some sky or a bit more depth - and i do think the border is too dark and heavy for this picture. 7 for the photo minus 1 for border = 6

Great composition and angle on the subject. Light picks out detail nicely and your exposure is a superb balance between crisp, frozen image and motion blurred elements. No reason not to vote this really high - like 9. Only reason it's not a 10 is because there could be more actual action in the scene.

Awesome! The brown background really makes the red biker pop out. Don't let people tell you you didn't need the border. It looks great :)
