AST Dew Tour, FMX Bike competition. Walked across the street from work during a quick break to grab this photo.

Thanks you for all your kind words and advice. I didn't realize it was so dark. I did learn that I need to calibrate my home monitor. It wasn't until I got to work and looked at the picture that I realized it was dark and more blue than I wanted.

Here is another photo with more processing than I could do on the basic challenge. //stowell.smugmug.com/gallery/5725522_FQwfY#374938877_FuyRY

I am really excited about the 4th place for this image. Thanks again!

That is one crazy shot/jump. Hope my kid never wants to do stuff like that. (And I prefer your other as well. An even greater sense of nuttiness.)

Wow, that's an awesome action capture. I love the disconnected-ness. You've totally killed yourself by saving a 33kb JPEG...you could have/should have bumped up the quality, maybe you could have avoided the artifacts. I wonder what it would look like in B&W, since the colour on the rider is almost lost in the shadows.

A little dark to me but what a great photo for the challenge. For me, it kinda has a double risky meaning: 9

Nice Picture. The color is a little blue and washed out. All in All great capture. I like the title.

Wow! I get the feel of 'risk' in this picture, and thus it works for me. Very well done!

Nice composition - looks a little underexposed?
