God am so glad I don't live in the xenophobic backwater known as Portsmouth anymore. They should flatten the place!!

I'm still undecided on the graffiti... I should probably 'shop it out though.

It kinda gives it an edge....but it is quite eye catching.

I think if it was left of the frame it'd balance out well, but as it is it makes the shot right heavy.

It's a very good capture, mate.

And it's like you say, it helps a lot to know the riding style of our model.

Just as curiosity... Did he pull the trick the first time you gave it a try? :)

Mr Social's like so pro. Also nice tones in the photo. Did you edit this from a raw image?

Shot in RAW, slight level adjust so that shadow detail was more visible on Martin and the bin.

Jobs a good 'un. :)

I thought so. The rider looks brighter than it should be but it kinda looks cool imo. I've always wanted to try shoot some bmx action photos :P

It's all about pre-meditating a shot. :)

This was off the cuff from Martin, but knowing him I thought he may go for this. It helps knowing the riding style and the way the mind works of the people you shoot... Heh.

Thanks :)
