    Another stunning photo, I love the quality of your photos - along with the composition of course. Chris

    Simon, what a great shot. Like Moira, having seen your photo on your webpage (with media bib and long lens) I am somewhat nervous of making a comment, particularly as this the first time I have uploaded an alternate photo (Modification 2) - grandmothers and eggs and all that!

    To be in the position to take the shot in the first place and to get the wheels off the ground and sharp as well is no mean feat at the speed these riders travel at - I don't know how on earth they do it. I think there are two ways of looking at the photo. Firstly, it is the Isle of Man after all and getting good backgrounds is not always easy (at any event) so the background is what it is and marks out where the shot was taken. Secondly, the bike is the main subject and the background should be secondary. I thought there was a bit too much space on the right-hand side (accepting it shows how far the bike travelled off the ground) and a tad off the left-hand side removes the grey pole which doesn't add anything. I took down the highlights a bit which I think makes the bike stand out a bit more.

    I agree that a shutter speed would have given a bit more sharpness to the photo - if the bike was on slicks then the higher shutter speed would not make the bike look static - but I guess you know all that having a bib to shoot races.

    I hope my upload gives you some food for thought - getting votes on this site for motorsports (as Moira highlights) is very difficult. Chris

    Excellent photos, they all look unreal given the height (so low) and clarity which isn't often seen except in this place. My award for all the images but especially those 'panned' (No 7 and 8( which show great skill. Chris

    A good photo and it gets my vote. I think it might be even stronger with a square crop by raising the bottom edge up to where the pavement curb changes colour.

  • Rob, saw your recent photo of Cal Crutchlow and had a look through your portfolio, you have certainly come on leaps and bounds since those early shots - which were pretty good anyway. Many of your photos would not be out of place in a sports magazine. Chris

  • Peter, I wondered if you had a related skill or interest, nevertheless, to me you have a natural talent and a photographer's eye - not being constrained by the theory is clearly an advantage in the way you work. Like Andy, I look forward to seeing your future work. By the way, I have just noticed your 'avatar' above (the face) which is brilliant in itself! All the best for the future. Chris

  • A very good series of photos which, from the look of your portfolio, show a great deal skill and knowledge in both camera and software - if this is your 'just learning what all the buttons do' then you must either have a natural talent or perhaps incredible luck at pushing random buttons! Chris

  • By chance I caught sight of one of your aircraft pics and wanted to see more; a really impressive portfolio. All your photos are excellent and the jets pin sharp which is no mean feat given the speed they do. I enjoyed looking. Chris

  • Viewed a recent picture and will add a vote in a minute but also viewed your portfolio which I enjoyed; varied themes (less the fruit bowll!). Rather than pick a shot out I thought I would leave a comment here. I find it amazing that it is so often possible to look at a portfolio and completely miss the photos a s they go through; I think it is due to the volume on the site these days. Chris
  • I like your style! Chris
  • Scott, some cracking photos here, good luck with your aspiration to be the MSA young tog of the year - plus your other ambitions; aim high! I am sure you will get there. Chris
  • Mike, what a great portfolio. I arrived here before voting on one of your uploads (13 May I think) and went right through looking for the picture at the top of your home page. I was so delighted to see it as it is one of those shots that has remained with me for quite some time - I am sure I voted for it so I hope I did having mentioned it!! Will try and find that upload - excellent photography. Chris
  • Andy, a stunning portfolio from start to finish. Chris
  • I enjoyed looking through your portfolio; consistently good shots. Chris
