Not sure about this. A lot of instant impact but then I begin to want the full rider and bike in frame. I want to see that dirt flying from the rear wheel. Not sure I would want this as the rider. The processing looks to be a bit over done. The tones and colours are not enturely natural either.

The general skill level is high, but too tight for me.

Im sure any of these would sell.


The earlier uploads are better in the sense they look more dynamic, and this looks quite static. As if the rider and bike were pasted onto the field, - which I know its not.

So, to get a better sense of action, and movement, try using a slower shutter speed, less than 1/1000; use tracking autofocus; and experiment. The very fast shutter will always freeze the action, and I think what would sell more, and set these apart is a more dynamic shot.

Its well done as it is.




regards


Willie

I have supplied quite a few images of this type to people, often free through my sons garage. We shoot at track events he is involved with. Some are bike shots, but on tarmac, but most are cars.

I have found that the shog that we might want here in our critique and the ones the driver wants of himself are quite different, often. Same as weddings. They want a sharp vehicle with possibly a little sense of movement, and they often want to be able to identify themselves inthe image.
