Simple edit really, went off to the Chicksands Mountain bike courseway about 30 mins from where I live and a few guys were out practicing so I was fortunate to get a few shots for a challenge I should really not enter but anyway....

Shot in JPG opened in CS3, cropped, highlights/shadows, curves, USM, noise ninja, resize to 630, add border, submit.


Not shooting high with this but I do like the feel of movement going on here.


Est. Score - 5.8
Dream score - 6.5

Nice finish m8! got so close to your dream score. Great how you got his face tack sharp and the movement and pan at the same time in the rest of the shot.

What an incredible stunt (and I'm not using rhyming slang here : ) )

Good capture, nice cropping, and background blur.

The only question I have is (to me ) does this ultimately represent speed, or an amazing stunt?

Big time air...very cool photo with the background blur really isolating the rider. I feel like I'm right there watching this live!
