    Many years ago, a lot of my work was MX related. if I wasn't at the track racing, I was taking pics. that was with my Olympus OM2N/Tamron 70-150. (thats how long ago it was);)

    a couple weeks ago I went to the AMA National at Red Bud. ahdn't been there in 20 years. this time I took my D50 and 80-200 2.8, which I kept protected with my high-tech cover

    is by far my favorite. There is such focus on the driver and the stopped moment, you forget about everything else. Great shot. I might consider cutting a bit off the top (that strip of white detracts from my main attention spot), but it's just me.

    Good point, thanx.

    In the album of the 8x10s I had printed, this pic is the one that I chose to be the first one. ;)

    how's this version?

    I like it without the top banner. I am not 100% sure on the balance of right background vs. left background, but it would take a while to play in photoshop to see what would work best for me. Perhaps a few more mm on the right - or would it be a few mm less on the left? Hard to say. Less on the left give more focus on the driver, more on the right would give more context and perhaps a wider breath.

    Heh. In digital photography, once the shutter is pressed, the fun is just beginning. ;)

    actually I intended for it to be a dust cover. but it rained that morning before the races, so dust wasn't a problem.
