    Hi there, I took people advice and went out and actually tried to shoot something rather than just sit around talking about it. A friend and I went out and did a little spring dirt biking. I was so concerned about speed and aperature that I didn't notice my ISO was at 800. I believe this leads to the noise you can see in the riders sweater, and in the sand bank on pic 5.

    I haven't had any time to crop these (my hand is just in #1 trying to stop flaring) or anything so here there are. Please feel free to break them down and give me advice. Cheers!

    Not bad.
    #1 is nice, just remember to use a lens hood next time.
    #2 is overexposed by at least one stop, more like 1 1/2, fix that in exposure compensation or on your comp
    #3 is good. Try to avoid the wires if possible.
    #4 is good.
    #5 What do you mean with too much noise? It looks fine.

    Thanks for the feedback! Now that I see #5 at that size it doesn't look noticeable, but at full size it is really noticeable in the sand.

    The clouds kept coming and going so it really made it challenging for me but I'm reasonably happy with them. Look forward to taking a bunch more.

    ISO 800 might have helped you to get fast enough shutter speeds to capture the bike in mid air so don't knock it too much.
