#5 Random Boarder!

Posted by
Linerberry (Herne Bay, United Kingdom) on 13 August 2008 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

Unfortunately I found it really difficult to capture a great action shot, though I really tried. Still, we live to learn and things can only get better! He was having fun though:-))

I think it's great very clear and crisp much better than most of my action shots which are blurred J

Yeah it's sometimes hard to focus on the dark part in a white background, specially in action shots. This one is good!

@Erik: It was amazing watching all the experts!! The learners slope was a bit less amazing and more kind of slow and occasionally painful:))) Great fun though!!

I cannot wait to play in the snow one day... I briefly played with snow 13,000ft above sea level in Mauna Kea, Hawaii... love the shot...

@Fliss: Not a bad place to play in the snow!! Thanks Fliss:-))

yes -- well, sports shots are very hard indeed -- in fact it is so hard, usually you will only see shots of extreme sports -- as those often depict some sort of 'extreme' action, or some sort of imminent danger -- and that is what holds the eye. of course if you can capture spraying water or ice -- or leaning figures, that works well too! but excellent shot here none the less -- i am enjoying the light and the snow and ice textures behind this figure. marvelous!

13 Aug 2008 10:55pm

@dj.tigersprout: Hay thanks dj! I really appreciate your information about action shots, I hadn't really thought about that. The snow was particularily fluffy that morning which really helped with the textures. Cheers:-))
