Something I have not shot for a while and I am still trying to master angle etc to get the sort of shot that will sell.

Let me know what you think (if colours are a little of I'm sorry as my usual laptop has died).

Wow Mark, I think you've done a great job with these photos!

The expressions / compositions of the first three are particularly pleasing to my eye. I don't look on the sports & action photos section very often, but my viewing is rewarded!

Colours are good (according to me, and my monitor). Maybe the last one could do with a little boost in saturation or something....

The reason I think the first three are my favs, is because the facial expressions match the jump positions so well! Great dof too where the background (dry slope / other skiers) are in the photo too.

Congrats!

Paul

Nice shots! The guy in #1 has my skis.

I'm going to try some action shots on the slopes this year as well. It should be fun? learning to deal with the sun/snow combination.

How close were you to the skiiers and what lens/focal length were you using?

Hi Christopher, these were taken from quite close, probably about 15-25 meters. I was using a Canon 30D with Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 at approx 100mm and f3.5. As for metering I used centre weighted which seemed to work pretty well.
