    Not bad shots.

    #1 Rider is overpowered by the building in the background, but great lighting
    #2 Foreground seems to pull your eye away from the rider
    #3 Good light, but rider seems slightly OOF

    You are definitely heading in the right direction!! Keep on going!

    Cheers

    I really like those shots but in number one there are 2 dust spots or something that is VERY distracting. Clone them out! One is just above the boarder and one over the trees is huge.

    I like the last photo, in fact I like them all, but this one caught my attention more.

    (This is my 1st cc, as I am afraid I can only give cc from my eye, no tech help)

    I personally really like #1 the best. I love the angle! I see what you guys are saying about the building overpowering, but I just really like the shot!

    Hey JayL

    It can be a pain to focus quickly in poor light!
    Your best bet may be to pre focus, and close the aperature as much as you can to get the most DOF, while keeping your exposure accurate.

    You have to visualise where the rider will be and try to manually focus to that point. You may have to have something or someone where you think the rider will be, distance wisae, and use that to auto focus and then switch to manual focus for the shot.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers

    I've tried that on some other shots but it was difficult, but then I was using a super wide, Im sure it would have been much easier to pre-focus that way with my tele-photo. Thank you!
