Hi Daniel,

Whilst a very sharp and well focused shot, the framing is all wrong.
A little too tightly cropped too.

Ideally, the stunt rider should have space to move into. He's falling "Out of the shot" and the tight cropping has the tyres cut from the bottom of the bike.

On a positive side,
The idea itself is a very good one, and like i say very well focused, with very good contrast and overall a clean sharp image.
Nice touch with the B&W conversion that makes the white T-shirt really stand out well in the shot.

Keep it up, and good luck with your new arrival in October.



First visit on your galerie, looked at a few pictures, and I find that you have some strong ones.

Not that I want to undermind "Mitch" critique, yet I can't agree with it.

Base my opinion on what I see, and what I feel about it.

Of all the tips and rules about compositions, some shot breaking some, might in fact work for the actual picture.

Got in mine of that shot of a motor bike, of a well known sport photographer, where the front wheel of the bike is right at the edge of the picture, giving the sense of "speed" such as zooming by effect. Sometime breaking some rules, just works..))

In your shot, what I see is not a bike leaving the scene, but the end of a movement. People in the background, play a role, on looking back at the bike, and the movement goes back into the image "people looking at the scene". I find it works fine, in this particular shot. Which I find, is a particularly good one. It's also a style of B&W that I enjoy very much, good detailed highlight, against dark and deep shadow area.
