    Was practicing some for a mountain biking event I will be shooting for my friend. The two came out the best.

    Yeah, background is not optimal in the second picture, but I was just practicing panning.

    Please, tear them apart for me. :)

    The first one is great, composition wise, looks like something out of a catalog

    the second one--well keep practising LOL you need to get it a little bit sharper and it will be better-of course easier set than done, I am rubish at panning!

    You got some good blur going with the 2nd one. I'm not sure if you have flash available, but if you do it definitely helps a lot with panning. It will freeze the rider much better but keep the background blurred. The first one looks like a good commercial sort of shot, except for the fact that it says Kenda instead of Maxxis ;)

    lol, thanks. I will try a flash next time.

    Well, my friend uses Kenda tires and I have Maxxis on my bike. :)

    thanks for the comments.

    Oh trust me, he has every mountain biking pad in existent, he just doesn't need to wear them when riding down my driveway.

    I will have some better shots on an actual location soon enough, wish me luck!

    The first shot would be a great catalog or ad shot.

    I like the soft blur in the second shot - the framing bugs me just a bit but I know how hard it is to hit a moving target.

    First shot is a real winner - can't wait to see your shots of the event. Photography and Mountain Biking are also two of my great loves but I haven't had a chance to combine them yet. :(
