Lift off

Posted by
grouser (Ludlow, United Kingdom) on 26 July 2009 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

Hot off the press, taken yesterday at a skateboard competition which was part of a youth festival in Ludlow. Not being a 'sporty' person I don't usually take sports shots so I was quite pleased with the way these came out.

Not bad - need less d o f.

@C Bresson: Dear Cartier, Good Lord what a surprise alive and well and living in the UK. Herefordshire I shouldn't wonder. F 4.5 too deep for you? There is always the blur tool in photoshop of course (bit after your time perhaps:), but life is too short

MARIANA from Waterloo, Canada

Great collage. And what is interesting that you caught all these three guys on the same high from ground !!! So, there is not the best..they are all super !!!

A fine trio of action shots caught at prime moments. These shots show how far off the boys get when competing. Nice ones.

"Not being a sporty person" myself I was surprised at how fascinating I found these excellent shots. You have such a nice sharp focus on their jumps and the tension in their bodies. Caught in the air against the clouds (did it rain later?). A stunning triptych. Congratulations.

@Dulcie: Yes a shower, but it's tipping it down today. Lots of rain this July,. All the fault of the Jet Stream being in the wrong place apparently, as it has been for the previous two years.Perhaps it's trying to tell us something.

You did right to sequence them like that and adopt this triptych presentation . . it really emphasizes the action !

They sure turned out pretty awesome. Looks like a pretty threatening sky.

Yep! - these came out exceptionally well! So what you're saying is that you weren't a participant then...?

@dobbino: My participation stretched as far as lying down on some convenient grass and poking my camera lens in the general direction of the action :) I was penalised with a damp bottom.

Lesley from Lincoln, United States

Very nice action shots!!
