Hi zombz

#1 - Nice and sharp, good exposure and good DOF, it has nice potential but needs a wider angle. I would prefer to see the right hand grips included and really need to see his left arm. It looks as if it might be missing.

#2 - Nice action with good exposure. Background is not too great of course. I would like a tighter crop, the stick in bottom right is distracting.

#3 - See #2

#4 - Pretty nice but I like the pose and all in #6 better. I like the low angles.

#5 - Nice but a slow shutter speed and panning would have added more motion to the tires and tehre seems to be some twigs or grass across the bottom covering his leg.

#6 - prefer this one over #4

#7 - Not as shrap and not too interesting. Probabaly one to throw out.

#8 - Very nice and sharp. Would be better with more space in front of him and less behind him.
Overall I like #3 and #8 the best.

For me, I think these are very much improved over your prior post "motocross edit".

Yep - agree about the rain. Fun to ride in but don't soak the equipment.

Keep it up!

I would like to see you slow low your shutter speed and pan some of the shots more. Will blur out the background a bit better, as it can get a bit distracting from your subject.

I took one of your photos, updated white balance, slight bump in exposure, upped saturation, and a slight sharpening. This was all done with Lightroom 3.
