    i think they're pretty good! i like the fact that you wrote your initials on the photos', in a place that doesn't affect the picture, yet it is noticeable. my friend takes pictures of me, then puts:
    www.nickbuchanan.com in the very center. can get VERY annoying (seeing as you can't see shit of what goes on in the picture, as the font is red and LARGE :greddy:

    Nice pictures, but you asked for criticism, so I'm going to post what few suggestions I have.

    You can get closer to the action. Nice clear big faces in shots are good

    Some of these would benefit from different crops, either tighter or looser

    You should try and stray from having distracting objects in your pictures. I know this isn't always possible, I get stuff in my pictures all the time, but if you think about the scene before hand you'll have an advantage. Pictures 6 (the white sign) and Picture 7 ( the red post) were the first two to come to mind. I don't know what it would have been like shooting from the other side, but the side these pictures were taken from both had distracting objects in them.

    i think they are really nice, but on the other hand i dont know anything about taking nice pictures. I especially like the pictures where there is the rider before the sidehop/what have you and then the rider in mide air/landing. i think they look pretty cool

    Yeah, that is the one thing i noticed myself. The frame positions arnt the best, i will have to work on them more, although it was hard taking photos of craig, he just rides around and you have to race around trying to get good pics. We are going for a ride again this arvo, i would like to get a good sequence of a huge tap from alexm. We will see how we go.

    One question i have about cropping, is it possible to crop with the same ratio as the image already is? if you know what i mean. Thanks.

    So you have to keep stoping and starting your camera over every 20 seconds? that kinda blows (i think i misinterpreted it)

    I'm not sure about previous versions of PS, but I know in PS CS you can choose a ratio after choosing the crop tool. It will come up near the top menu bar, just under file, edit, image, etc. If you have an older version of photoshop, it may be possible, and not show up like that by default. I would search the help file.

    Ehhh....no, he took 30 minutes of film. Video camera, you know? Of those 30 minutes, less than 20 seconds of the film is good enough for a video. Every shot is either the worst angle you could ever get, every shot has kevin in it, every shot is around 50 feet too far away...stuff like that. It's quite a feat to make 6 foot ups look bad, but he found a way to do it.

    Great work Hydro. :bigthumb:
    PS isn't the easiest thing to use at first. I like your shots. Nice and clear. If you want some ideas on camera angle's, depth of field, lighting etc, have a look at some skate or BMX mags. You can learn a bit by studying others who have been in the game a lot longer.

    Just have to say this. You guys owned the Super12 this year and you guys own trials down under.

    Filthy Australians. Filthy I say, just filthy. :D
