Default Dirt bike

Not really done much sport photography and re-found this from last year, now I'm more into photoshop to see if I could give it a boost.

I like that...the roostertails of dirt.... lot's of dust and clumps of dirt suspended in the beautifully coloured clouds of dust, the tight line of racing Moto Cross bikes launching fast off the line and darkening skies.

You've caught the start of a m motorcycle race well. I almost feel like I'm there.

Les

Are those black dots in the skies...bird rousted by the loud noise of the motorcycles ?

Thanks Les.
No the black dots is just more grit being thrown into the air by that initial scramble.

One sweet shot indeed. Did you shoot RAW and from that do an HDR?

No its a single jpeg but I used the Topaz adjust plug-in then adjusted contrast, added a gradient to darken the dust and de-noised it.

Oh, Topaz adjust is a sweet little plug-in. Unfortunately its not available for the Mac. At least my Mac. It gives an HDR grungy look which, in your case, I like very much.
