Flying through the woods

By simon9924
Been away from here too long, about time I posted some more shots! Taken at the Bontrager Twentyfour12 mountain bike event at the weekend. Was my first attempt at using a remote flash, I have a lot to learn but was quite pleased with this shot.
As usual, any helpful suggestions for improvement always welcome.

Excellent shot - as good as anything I've seen in a mountain bike mag. (As a bit of a mountain bike anorak I love the retro bike - takes me back a bit!).

Spot on Simon. Keep them coming if you´ve got more. A great sense of motion and like Jond said, would look great in a magazine!

Cheers for the comments.
The guy in the pic is my mate Gary, he's a bit of a Bontrager nut Smile

Absolute beast of a shot.
Brilliantly timed, shutter speed and flash are spot on.
Like this a lot!

Fantastic panning. Always hard to get the rider/bike so crisp. Well executed. CLICK!

Cracking, such speed, good panning. I like the colors, the clear silver line, the colors -- especially the greens. The lighting is truly great. Best regards, Bert

Excellent shot Simon - obviously had some time to practice while you've been off for the last couple of months Smile
