[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Motocross near Greenville TX. My first attempt at shooting this sport.

Shot was cropped, some cars cloned out on the highway behind. Contrast adjustment, sat boost, and resized for web before USM.

You're a natural, excelent shot and well done on this composition. Excelent work.


Great shot in the air, nice work.

Your cloning talents are great, and so are your photographic skills. It's not one of my favorite sports, but the picture looks very good, compo spot on

How a great action Laurie, and very sharp, a perfect moment, the motorcyclist jumping into your picture, that's very nice seen, great shot and no disturbing cars:-))

You catch him very clearly! No dust... No blur... Like if it don't move! I did a session of photos like this in a motocross competition this summer. It was a great experience!I like the clarity, nice background!

Great PP Laurie, The motor crosser seemed added to the picture. So sharp in a perfect background. Never had the idea that there were cars on this picture.
My compliments.

Great photo.

I like MX. I'm a former ENDURO rider.
