Apologies, this is my 1st upload as a newbie and it probably doesn't warrant critique due to it being shot in Sports Mode!
I shot it paning and attempt to fill the shot with bike (quite tricky sometimes) with many wasted shots. I hate cropping as I feel you lose quality, your thoughts are most welcome!!
Pretty good for a first upload - welcome to the gallery. Good sharp pic, panning takes some practice.
Regarding cropping, you wouldn't lose too much quality in cropping this, especially for upload on here.
If I had to critique one thing, I would rather there was more space in front of the bike than behind - so your rider is riding into shot, rather than out of it.
Look forward to seeing more!!
It takes a lot of courage to put a photo up for other photographers to pick fault. You may have only just started doing it but you are obviously not just starting as a photographer. I believe that a good panning shot is one of the hardest shots . I spent a lot of (in those days) film before I even came close to what you have.
Biggest thing about your shot to me is the lack of space in front of the rider. The white line at the top right and the grass in the bottom right tend to draw my eyes out of the frame. In my mod I have altered those and added a little extra motion blur. I think that you have a good shot here that with a bit of work could become a great shot.
I hope that I have been some help.
As people evaluating your image, it is the image that matters, not the way you achieved it. We need to know the method as it helps comment, but if you manage a perfect image - method isn't relevant other than we can all then learn.
This is a good effort. For me, two things. I don't mind bikes tight in the frame, but you do need a little more space in front than behind.
The shadow says he was backlit, and you have exposed well. However. I would have increased brightness just a touch to liven the whites without loosing detail.
Hhmmm.....I would expect to see Rossi on a bike using number 46
Nice shot though!
Welcome to EPZ Richie. NO apologies needed. This is a decent shot, nice panning, and as said above, the bike itself can look better a little brighter.
In addition, for any shot, having the subject, whether moving ot not, either looking or moving into image space and not the edge of a frame is a good rule to follow.
I have loaded a mod with the bike brighter and sharper, added some space, and removed that small bit of white track edge at the top.
Enjoy the site.
nice shot welcome to ephotos
Thank you for the all positive comments, they are a great help!! I wished I had considered composition and using PS to clean it up a little before uploading!! Guess I have a lot more to learn
