DRGSin, it looks like you had a fun day out.

My fave is number 2 but I would say that there it either too much sky or too much track as the bike is too Central in the frame. If you get a chance to shoot this one again then I would prefocus as you have a narrow aperture and wide lens and then you can frame in how you like so you are no longer dead centre.

With number 1 all you need to do is play with curves so that therider is better exposed astheyare too dark.

3 is very cool but feels a little soft (I know you had a slow shutter and I don't have an instant fix apart from trying to up the shutter speed a little).

The last one is a nice sharp image.

Hope to see some more soon.

Thanks for the critiques and compliments guys! Truly appreciated. This is a buddie's track that I goto every once in a while. Mark, I agree with the "too much sky" comment but man I like how ominous those clouds look in the rider's background...almost as if he's brewing up a storm with his riding...silly, I know. LOL

Cool shot I like this one, there is one thing I learnt from the Pros who follow the UK circuit and this is to use a good flash to expose the bikes and backgrounds together as this would have been really stunning with the sky a little darker and the bike lit up. I've yet to have a chance to try this yet but looking forward to it.

You are lucky to have the chance to shoot at a closed track like this so you can play around to your hearts content.

Oh and yes the clouds in the earlier one were stunning!!!

Edit, hopeyou don't mind but this is the sort of result you can get if you were to use flash apart form the sky would be a lot better!

No, I dont mind at all. In factI do use a flashmost of the time.During this particular session, the third one ofa VERY cold day, I realized my batteries were dead during the shoot and felt bad for the riders being outside just for me that I didnt bother getting replacements. Ill post some others where you can clearly see the use of the flash and how it "opens" things up..ie...the goggles/eyes, engine compartment, etc... Once again, thanks for your input!

That's cool, yes I would like to see the difference it makes as I've not had a chance to try it out myself.
