Afternoon everyone !

Many thanks for your comments & clicks on yesterday's image, very much appreciated.

Thought I'd have a change from landscape's today, had a look through the Air Jam shots taken a while back, and picked this one out to share with you - hope the boys come back this year. It was a great event !

Hope you like it !

Chris

Good afternoon, Chris,
Superb piece of all action photography, the subject occupying the frame so well: hope he is hanging on tightly, as it looks as if he is in danger of losing his bike to me.

WOW this is excellent, composition exposure first class, I do find the face in shadow could be lightened a touch to make this perfect, why not upload a second if you have time.

Hi Chris
I am so glad you agreed with my comments on this fab image 350 - 500 shutter speed would make it spot on
