Okay!
I will try that next time. How about metering? What do you think I should use? Spot metering? Or Matrix?

When you talk about manual exposure, do you mean manual mode then? I shot these in aparteure mode. I also used centered weighted metering. Maybe thats wrong? How is the white in the water going to be if I highered the exposure compensation more?

Thanks again Mark for your input. It means alot.

Take care/Daniel
LOL, that's a lot of shooting but it is paying off

Yes manual exposure. Using AV and especially centre weighted (when you subject is out of the centre) you will get exposures changing and not correct for your subject. Yes the water will be blown out, but your subject (the rider in this case) will be correct. It's one of those situations where you can't have everything, but the face of the person in a sport is key so needs to be correct.

If you are in manual it makes no difference, the meter isn't used by the camera so don't worry about it.

Yep! I feel like Lucky Luke

But itīs so fun.

Okay, so I will try manual, and Iīll just have to accept the water being blown out. Or hope for a cloudy day instead
