Let me know if the set is too long or the images too big ...
Pics taken with Nikon D7000 + Nikkor 70-300

All C&C welcome :) - I always try to get shots from as many angles as possible, which means the light is not always in my favour, but sometimes I try to get away with "artistic lisence" so let me know if I succeeded or not ;)

Uhhh, yeah.... #13 is pretty nifty. I like how in #6, we can see a bit more of the crowd and the lake setting; tight close-ups are nice, but they do not show "the event", or "the spectacle" created by such an unusual thing as snow machines on water.

Thanks for all your replies!

Ronlane : sorry, I'll keep the sets shorter in future, thanks for replying :)

MSsnowy : thanks, I'm always extra glad if I can get a pic where you can see the rider's expression :)

runnah : absolutely ;)

Derrel : interesting point, I do usually go for slightly more zoomed out shots, but have been experimenting with tighter crops as I sometimes feel they give more impact. However, I agree with you, all close ups and no background, do not tell the whole story. Maybe something like these would be a bit better? (from the same event)

This is just silly! (But wayyyyyyy cool!) Nice set, and yes, agree, #13 is THE shot of this set. Well done!

I like #7 and #12 having the subject suspended in midair with lots of spray and fir trees in the background. And 13 is awesome, love the almost ghostly mistiness. Beautifully done.

Sid51 : thanks :)
tirediron : yes it is, esp when they sink ;) But huge fun as well :) Thanks for your comments :)
vintagesnaps : thanks :)

I'm glad people like nr 13, this is why I always go round the other side of the bay at this event, when the sun is actually in the way, to get these kinds of pics ...
