    Tried something different

    Think these belong here. sorry if they don't.
    I have been wanting to get some action shots of a few friends when out on our bikes, but i always forget the camera or never find anywhere suitable. Today that changed I managed to get some of my friend on his Kawasaki ZX10R. Its my first attempt at this sort of photography so please let me know what you think and where they could be improved.

    Thanks in advance

    More suitable for People and Pets, but since 70 percent of your image has foliage I guess this will do. Live dangerously, get closer.

    Personally, I like to see a level 'horizon' as with #1.

    These images aren't really big enough, or cropped close enough to get a good view of the rider but this basically seems to be working OK, as far as I can see.

    When I tried something lie this I was told that what really makes the image is if you can see the riders eyes. Argues for something more up close certainly and I have also learned to avoid helmets with darkened visors - not that this a problem here.

    Hi,

    Cool shots. Isle of Man?

    #1 is ok. Try to click at the apex of his turn, just before he shifts weight to his right.
    Or when his right knee is almost touching the road.
    ( see PhotobyTrace's photo making a right sweep on his bike.)

    Perhaps, give space to his right/where he's going to.
    His eyes? Very difficult , considering he has goggles/if not a face visor/mask.

    HTH

    victor - its a road about 12 miles away from salisbury, uk. a nice sweeping 'S' bend which we stumbled across.

    i will try various different things next time and see what comes out. i think the eye's would be a good thing to capture and i will also try from the other side of the road. thanks for all comments
