    They seem soft and underexposed, with exception to the last one, which has better exposure but is still soft - and when removing something (what is it?) from the snow it would be better to use the clone tool than to just draw white boxes over it.

    Could you have gotten closer for the shots?

    Thank Reg. I think it was soft because I had the lens out to 300mm. I'm hoping tomorrow to go back out there. I'm gonna see if I can get on the hill and sit off in the woods to get closer. I'll have to check out the clone tool. I didn't think it was too noticeable, the white box that is.:lol:

    One tip: Even if you have to go to 300mm, a close up shot that is a little soft can always be sharpened in Photoshop. Photoshop can't, however, make tiny people fill the frame.

    Try to get as close as you can, and fix what you have to later.

    dont be afraid to get closer to the subject.. i love snowboarding pics but they are only good when you can see what trick is being done... like this...http://www.americancorners.or.kr/upload/snowboarding.jpg note that, yes we cant see the snow, but we know what he's doing (hense the snowboard) but its a nice close up of what he's doing

    i was going to suggest the same thing, as these photos feel like snapshots rather than photographs. YOu want to be a LOT closer, so you can see more detail, and from a different angle, maybe closer to the ground looking up at an angle.
