    Scooter girl!

    Wish I would've gotten more of the scooter she was on in this shot...then you'd see why she was moving so fast! But I like the shot anyway.

    C&C welcome & appreciated!

    ISO: 250
    Exposure: 1/500 sec
    Aperture: 6.3
    Focal Length: 270mm

    Hi Kelly,

    Although it could be arged there's a distracting shape in the background, the even colour and blur go a long way to making it fairly insignificant.

    We could also suggest the framing would have been better with the ends of her ponytail in shot, but as you say, it is an action shot.

    So what's left?
    The biggest issue for me is that it isn't that sharp, I'm sure it could be improved with effective PP, downsize and sharpen.
    The exposure is a bit over, but it is good on her face.

    HTH,

    I agree about the odd shape in the background, but I was thinking her face was underexposed.
    There might be some further contrast adjustments that might improve.

    Great energy in the shot. I would suggest giving her profile a clean edge by removing the hair. I like the back lighting and the shaded background. I like what was done to the background by removing the wall shape.
