Greetings from the Critique Club

I always enjoy action shots because they are sometimes so difficult to get. You have good color and excellent composition in this shot. I really like how the subject matter fills the frame with no extraneous material to get in the way.

This image certainly fits the challenge, but didn't get a really great score.

The one thing I would suggest is to make something in your image tack-sharp. As it is, everything is just a bit fuzzy. The motion blur on grandpa's legs works perfectly, but the sled and/or the snow should be really sharp. One way to accomplish this - with that nice camera of yours - is to shoot in burst mode; one or more of the resulting images is likely to be sharp. (at least it works for me.LOL)Another way to try for sharpness is to bracket your shots.

You have a good sense of composition in this and your other shots. A little more practice, and you'll be up there with the best of 'em.

This is the first honest shot I have seen on the challenge. Good work and I hope Grampa got the hang of it.

One of the few photos that makes me think of "oops." Well done as far as that goes. I like his smiling expression.

That happened to my b-n-l, and Oops! is not the word that came out of his mouth. ;)

The posture doesn't look like he has fallen off the board.There is appropriate motion blur, though, and the exposure is good.
