    My monitor is done for and I still haven't got a new one so sorry if it is too dark, too light, I can't tell! Anyways, this shot is going in our little zine that we are putting out, unless someone totally destroys my thoughts of it being decent.

    Cool picture. It looks pretty high contrast on my screen, but I think that it fits the image. Long time ago I knew this Russian guy that did that, I tried it once... heheh only once. Cool to watch though :)

    Really great the way you've captured the motion and the composition is superb.

    I cropped the shot a bit, there was alot of junk in the backround that made it look horrible. Anyways, thanks for the comments.

    Wow, that sure brought back the memories when I saw the name of the rider. It's an awsome pic though. More photography like than what I've seen in the mags over the recent years. Good sense of motion without blur. It conveys the whole move and his surroundings so there's a complete story there. Something I've been struggling with while shooting trials as of late. I'm gettin good pics but to someone who knows nothing about trials they have no idea what's going on. I'm missing the "what's he doing, where's he going, how did he get there in the first place, how big is that rock" and on and on...................... All of which to me you got with your pic. And of a legendary figure to BMX as well. Good stuff :p

    Great job! You caught the rider without any background "attached" to him, which I think is really important in a shot like this. I like the high-contrast too, but I tend to lean that way anyway. I think it's rather appropriate here.
