    I have never shot a lot of action photos, but I am starting to like the results. Let me know what you think. I should of told the ladies to ride toward the camera. Again; I owe a lot of it to the convience of the ol' Nikon 5200.


    A little tough to see, but this is the lovely Karla on "Karla's Ridge" 9,200'

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    really like the action and the drama in the first photo, when shooting with snow always meter from the brightest spot and sometimes add +1/3 exposure compensation to stop the whites burning out.

    in the second pic i like he way you have frozen it but i feel that it would would have bennifitted from a slower shutter speed and a bit of panning giveing it a sense of speed, maybe you could add some motion blur in photoshop...

    nice job :thumbup:

    Thanks Gang!!! The original of the first shot has detail in the snow. I think I went a too far in opening the snow. I will see what the print looks like. I fully agree on the lack of motion in the second frame.
