Congrats, Ruben!! Great photograph, and it really shows "movement".17 April 2014
Welcome to Focussion, and your first shot here is amazing. :-)3 March 2014
The light is very good and bright with a good composition. Don't know about the foreground . Some more movement in the driver could make it even better. Good luck withe the contest.
I really really like this. You've captured the moment superbly. The clarity alone makes this a great shot. Well done - and you're only 17!!3 March 2014
I don't mind the foreground, maybe it could be cropped a little, but like @PhotoLore says I bet you have other shots from that day that don't have the rock. Another option could have been to raise yourself up higher so you would've got less rock. In saying that though the rock adds a bit of a story and feeling of containing the rider. I'd be happy if I got a shot like this!
I have to ask, how did you keep the dirt and dust off your camera - he must've thrown up quite a bit as he zoomed past you!?!
Superb work - I'm looking forward to seeing more from you :)
Nicely composed and an excellent image..! It brings the "viewer" right into the scene and the mayhem, and it certainly delivers an emotional response to both. As well, I disagree with my friend's Joe's (@jvittek) comment about the rider looking too "plastic". Rather - it is right on and your post processing is superb.Overall? I just wished you had stepped a bit to the left to leave the big rock a more bit to the right in the image...2 March 2014
Nicely done and again - welcome to Focussion!
I agree with @keith about the foreground, but I´m sure you have some other shots from that day? I would definitely love to see some other ones, and I really like the definition and the movement you captured here. Also, I would have loved to be this talented and this good at photography when I was 17 :)1 March 2014
Welcome Rueben.1 March 2014
Had it not been for the foreground this would have been a stellar shot. Worthy of publishing (or at least submitted to a Motocross Magazine) for publication. You certainly have the eye and the post processing skills and I look forward to seeing more images like this, minus the distracting foreground of course.
Just don't take too much of a chance (placing yourself in the path of danger) to get that next super image.
