Default Bell Wasatch Enduro MTB Race

This is my first ever attempt at any action sports photography. I went up to Canyons Resort in Park City and hiked the course to take some shots. Took me a bit to get dialed in, but I think they turned out pretty darn good. Here are a few samples. comments/critique always welcome.

Some interesting angles. The Panning is a little off, subject a bit blurred.

Yea, I definitely have to practice my panning skills. The three here were my three best attempts, but I had never tried panning before since pretty much all I've shot before was landscapes. Thanks for the comment.

These are great shots... I think the small amount of blur actually adds to the feel of movement..!!
Nice action- and some nice hardware there...

I'm not sure, but I'll take a look, do you know what color clothing/helmet he was wearing?

He, or I was wearing a orange shirt, green shorts, a white full face helmet, and riding a white bike. Thanks for looking!

Ha, glad you like it. I don't mind if you use it, I just prefer if you leave it as is.
