I have many awesome shots from this shoot. I was lying on the ground between two motorbike ramps in the middle of the show arena with a few thousand people watching. The motorbikes hit the ramps and flew over me allowing me to get these unusual angles. I love doing the risky jobs.

You crazy! Now I must ask were you nude shooting this? That might explain why he's looking down at you. Second question did he crash afterwards? :P

You got some nerve to be laying between ramps to get a shot like this! I have watched those shows on tv and seen many a wipeout. Fantastic shot. Such great clarity and color. One of my favs in the challenge.

personally with him looking right at the camera you could have easily reversed the title and made it-

I found a crazy photographer under me

Yay Judi! Congrats on a high placement ;) Sweet shot!

Congrats! (Even if I gave you a 10, it would not have changed your score enough to bump you a position - too much between 5th and 6th place - whew!)

I really enjoyed looking at this photo! It is in my favs ever since I saw it the first time.

What a cool image!
I would have scored this with a 10 in a number of challenges, but this time it feels like it just does not belong here... points off for that but- adding as a favorite.

That is unexpected. Really great capture of the action. Nice and crisp, good colors. Especiallly good since the rider seems to be looking right at the camera!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/09/2006 11:21:52 PM
Wonderfully sharp shot. I love the fact that the rider is making eye contact too. The red of the goggles draw your attention to his eyes. Well done.

Unusual viewpoint for this type of shot (which are more common by the day) which makes this stand out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2006 12:41:16 PM
Cool idea and well captured, would have been even cooler though if the tires were not just so completely frozen, the image looks pretty static because of it, if the tires just had a hint of motion blur this would be so much more dynamic. Anyway, nice shot, gave it a 7.
