    I've noticed the same thing in all of your shots... The person on the bike is always the SMALLEST thing in the frame when if he's the subject - he should be taking up more of the frame...

    These are boring. Mainly becuase of bad composition. I agree that these are framed to loosely but most people who dont ride always think shots are too far away and they really dont know what your talking about.

    The second composition would be better without the pole on the right.

    Often the most interesting part of an action shot like this is the face. I agree that the subject should be bigger, but I also find that the subject is entirely in shadow.

    I like your shots, but I would have thrown a close face shot in there just to appease the others.

    Condescend much? When you take a photo intending others to view it, you're not "talking" about anything at all. That's like saying people who don't actually play music have no idea how to listen to it. Which is of course a fallacy. It's all about emotion. How it makes you feel.

    but most people take bmx photos to show to others interested in bmx, not to people interested in something completely different. that would be like finding a picture of chase hawk roasting trails in a issue of Super Chevy. It's not going to happen. And music is definitely not always about feeling as well. i hate saying that, but listen to mainstream rock. I heard an interview with Hinder saying they want to make music for people to enjoy it. in other words not what they want to play and feel.

    It depends on the type of shot, though. It's very common in bmx photography to show the takeoff and the landing in the frame, even if it makes the subject smaller.

    Music is Always about emotion to the listener. Just like photography is all about emotion to the viewer.

    You even used the word enjoy in your response.
