    Caught this shot tonight at a local motocross practice. The light during golden hour was great and allowed me to keep from blowing out the sky.. a rare occurrence at this track. Let me know what you think!

    Also, this is the first shoot with my new D750.. definitely liking it so far!

    I suppose having some clods of dirt sailing toward the camera would be to much to ask for? :allteeth: Nailed this one!

    Thanks for the positive feedback guys! I knew instantly I had a good shot.. I'm just not sure about the processing I applied. And to me the whole thing is so crazy that it almost looks like a composite.

    Nicely done. I was actually thinking about suggesting to put it in PS and do a luminosity mask on a curves layer to bring down the exposure in the sky a little more. Then possibly copy and reverse it to bring up the exposure on the bike. (That would give it even more of a composite look.)

    @Destin, Thought I would show you what I was referring to. Sort of like using high speed sync with lighting.

    I do like that man! I thought about pushing it farther but my attempts looked very fake.

    Nice work on that edit though!

    It was two layers in Photoshop using luminosity masks on curves layers. Check out youtube on that.
