wow, great shot. love the sense of perspective, and the shadow the bike is casting on the wood.
there really are getting to be some quality looking stunts at the falls.

any chance of getting a hi-rez version??

Awesome shot! I'd lighten the rider a little but otherwise it's a great action shot

Isn't one of the basic rules of photography is to have the sun at your back, this lessens the shadows on the subject matter.

Maybe next time the photographer can perch in the tree behind and take the shot looking down.

IMO I would beg to differ in this case , the shadows of the wheels coming down add a great perspective , all he needed was a fill in flash to lighten up the rider
my 2 cents worth

wow nice high line the rider has taken .

ive got a mate that brings one of those slave external wireless flashes down and gets another mate to hold it somewhere else while he take it. makes for some really cool pics.

Cool guys thanks for the comments. Regarding the techie questions i am not sure as i am only the monkey riding Smiling

However if you see two guys walking around the falls carrying a camera as big as a truck, answering to Cam & Mike...thats them!!

See ya in the hills soon!!!

That is an awesome shot - the exposure, settings, etc. really good. Don't like the rider much though. His orange shirt looks suss! Is he too big for that bike?

mate ... can you see if you have the time to ride with me and show me a few stuff?

Wheelbig's picture

Dude, I'm going to ring Fuel TV and get them out there to take some footage of you. You know how to get those two wheels moving! Do you have workshops?
