Good catch. The dark shades should be darker

great action shot, shame we cant see a little more of the other bike - but the colours seem a little strange, arent tyres usually black? - 8

This would have been outstanding except the post processing is off or would seem too much going on in the midrange or neutrals. Highlights need toning down.Some contrast problems. But it looks loke a real workable pic.

Good capture of the jump. Something seems a bit off in the post-processing...I'm guessing maybe you used Shadow/Highlight a bit too much? Doesn't quite look natural.

its tough with this much detail in the shadows, but that tell-tail washed out shadow filter look hurts this otherwise strong shot. great timing and well framed, but it misses the saturated colors that would have put it in the top ten.

Shame, you lost a lot of contrast in this, maybe the exposure was off and you have tried to rescue it

while it's a good action shot, the processing looks a little overdone...
