    Finally got a chance to post up a couple of pictures from the motocross races this past weekend. I LOVED the blue gear he had on. Made my job just so MUCH easier . My buddies dark black gear on the other hand made my life miserable.

    My best shot....


    And my favorite shot of the day....(since it turns midnight here in two mins )

    Thank you. May I ask what you like about the shot? While I do like it, I didnt quite think it was as good as some of my other ones (For instance the other shot I posted up).

    Just trying to learn what other people like since maybe one day I might try and sell some of my motocross pictures to magazines, sponsors, etc. It doesnt matter what the photographer likes since he isn't the one who is paying for the pictures.

    I'm sure Rooz will chime in.. but i'll offer my humble advice.. Your first shot was okay but simply didn't have much interest- guy on a bike.. no sense of motion.. bright orange barrier right behind him (distracting). If I were you, I would position myself near the highest jump and work on nailing those shots of guys in flight (like in your 2nd shot).. Then maybe get on a hairpin corner and work on getting some shots that show the action of the guys throwing mud as they accelerate out of the berm.. Just my thoughts.. Have fun out there. I wish I had a track near me..

    I hope that you don't mind and I will delete this if you want.
    Both those shots caused me problems for several reasons and as it's Saturday and raining I'm sitting in front of the PC playing. I've done some experiments on your shots and I'll explain what I have tried to achieve (as opposed to what I have done).

    For the jump shot that tree or whatever on the left does nothing for the photo and the marshal sitting looking uninterested doesn't help either imo.
    I tried two things the first was to make the shot vertical just to see how the impression of height worked. Having the rider appearing to be jumping over the sign (in height) seems to me to make it more dramatic. For the second one I rotated the image to get the signs more or less straight and again cut out the extra stuff that imo doesn't need to be there. Rotating the image also visually makes the slope look steeper (angle of the fence posts) and more dramatic.
    Shot two sort of hurt my eyes all that really dark and light. It appears to me that you were on the wrong side of the corner, it looks like the rider is turning right which means he is always going to be looking away from you and it also looks like you were shooting into the sun. Obviously you can't always be in the perfect place but I think that grass up above the front mudguard may have been a better spot if you were allowed there. For that photo I just cropped it to get as much of the background out as I could and also changed it so the rider is riding into the photo rather than being centred. I also got rid of that tape coming out of the back of the bike.

    the image has context and gives us a feel for the speed, the atmosphere, the track and the danger. its just a great shot.
