View Full Version : Still more ice racing..........

02-20-2011, 09:53 AM
As xpwizard said we were at the ice races yesterday for a bit. I managed to get a few interesting shots and even lucked out and picked up a couple of "mishaps". Nobody hurt though!!
One fellow got too close to the snow bank in a corner and and did a bit of a nose dive.
Another ended up on top of the bank and need to be towed off.
And one guy even does his driving from the back seat.
Any comments are always welcome.

Nice work Aub. I like #3 as I missed it.

This is a fun set aubintbay!
In terms of comments, shot 2 is my fave here - but i might suggest a crop.
If it were mine I'd likely crop out the first sign on the right edge by 1 milimeter. I also might crop out all 3 signs of the left as well. Cloning would work if you are into cloning.
I really like the action in that shot and if it were mine i'd likely play with it for a while. One of my plays would be to see how it would look with the center portion enlarged (and sides cropped) so that most of the shot is covered with the spraying snow in the background. Cheers - marko

Hey thanks for the feedback xp and marko!
I was lucky to catch that guy hitting the bank. He was off in 1 corner of the frame while I was shooting someone else.
Marko...I was trying to post a "fun" set here.:) I was thinking we've probably posted enough of the ice racing.......for this season.....maybe.., so
i wanted to post a few others. The 2nd shot was just a shot I liked. I think i will have a go at the edits you suggested. I need the practice.:D
