Photographers should feel blessed that there are so many people willing to do such idiotic things : )

Awesome capture! I love shooting motocross - I'm hoping someday for the opportunity to shoot a free style rider....

Now there is a decisive moment!
Exceptional clarity and timing on this shot ((9))

you just ROCK! i mean ROOCKCCCK! wow. i really feel for you, because no score will ever do this image justice, especially in a challenge like this. you really should submit this to kodak.com for their potd. and now, as i have nothing else to offer, i'll just sit and enjoy it for a moment, if you don't mind. good luck in the challenge!

Great capture of the moment! Every nice focus! I voted this a "9"

Great catch, excellent detail. There is still some spinning in the wheels left to show that it is not a trick setup (I know it isn't, seen plenty of this stuff myself). I like it, but am left with an empty feeling. The photo doesn't show the atmosphere, the setting, the crowd going wild, stuff like that. But maybe that is a bit too much to ask for. :) 7

Wow! Stunning capture. Almost looks like some weird sky diving experiment.

Nice and sharp, clean background and the crop works well for me also.

Awsome mid-air bike shot. I'm guessing that this will do pretty well.

What a fantastic shot ! I Hope the flying dude didn't fall after this......
01/19/2005 03:38:45 PM
perfect shot is all I can say for this one...Magnificent
01/18/2005 03:25:51 PM
Wow, good capture, good angle, good background, good image...Good Luck.

I can't see how you managed to catch this. Fantastic!
01/17/2005 07:54:55 PM
Very nice action shot. I like the solid sky bg. I wish the biker and bike were a little brighter but still a great shot.

These images are always difficult to capture, but you have done so with great clarity and technical quality. A super image.

Nice capture here. Good crisp focus. You have done a pretty good job photographing what is clearly one of the biggest DPC cliches. As a personal preference I think this might have been better with a bit more negative space to emphaises the riders flight. Doesn't quite wow me (probably because of the commanality of this type of image on dpc) but you clearly know how to handle a camera! 7.

I hope he survived! Nice work....

Beautiful action shot!

Oh my goodnes! It's hard to imagine this guy ending up this shot in a "less than painful" place! AMAZING phtograph. Sports Illustrated quality if not better! Congratulations, and good luck!! Certainly gets a 10 from me.
