Tinky, Clickx, Roo

Thanks for your reactions guys.

 I indeed also love that 4th photo. Was hard to catch, do don't see the drivers approaching you and when they jump over you, it's that fast that you won't have any reaction time. I needed a few jumps of them before I could get sharp pictures. So I was first sitting up to look at which side they were approaching and then going all down with prefocus and shutterbutton ready to take pictures. I got some nice pictures from that place. Here a few more. Tell me which you do like most.

The second last, looks like he's gonna land right on top of you.  Eye contact with the subject is always good.

I like the first best out of those shots given he/she is looking at the camera.

I like the first because of his engagement w/ the audience. But I think the third is also pretty solid. I don't know what it is, but its got a lot of swagger! Well done!

Your fourth photo needed the finger ready on the shuttertrigger. Nicely done Matthew.

Thanks  :)

I'd love to say it was a one shot snipe, but its an extract from a 10 shot high speed burst. The 7D makes me look better than I am  ;D
