These were shot with the D3 and the 14-24 f/2.8 at 14mm. I mustve freaked this guy out the 1st time, sinceI was standing so close to his linebecause he coasted thru the turn. But the 2nd time around..he brought it! This was the shot

Nice shots.

Not the lens I would have picked for MX, but great results.

Thanks for looking Frisky. I agree with you. My 70-200 is my main lens but after 1000s of "typical" MX shots, its nice to play around and get something different. It helps to keep things fresh.

Glad you liked it. It got hairy, onceI stopped to think of what could go wrong.

Very cool and certainly an interesting perspective.

BTW you need a sensor clean!!!!

LOL yea that day was brutal. I had a ton of post processing to get rid of all that crud. I did end up cleaning the sensor, my 1st ever attempt, and now she's clean as a whistle. Thanks for looking!

Nice shots! For another interesting perspective, find a really tight 180 turn where the riders are taking the inside line and shoot from the inside with an ultra wide lens.
