Although this photo depicts action it feels somewhat static to me because of the front and center positioning of the subject and the angle for which the shot was taken. The movement of the skier could have been improved by capturing him either farther out in the frame or by cropping.

If you had crouched a little lower you might have been able to get more height to the spray from his turn.

Additionally, I think this photo would be more interesting if the primary subject were in the top 2/3 of the photo. There's a bit too much sky and empty space in the photo which I find distracting.

All the best,

If your subject had been on the right of the frame with a little more of a hint of what was holding him up on the left the shot would have a lot more of a dynamic feel.

Good capture.. more zoom/tighter crop would've helped.

If the shot was more shapr and cropped more tight, it would be much stronger
