Really nice set. Love the saturated color and sharp focus. 1& 4 show great action. The jumper is totally lost in boring background in #5, so for me that's the weakest one. I think 3 would be a stronger image without the crazy tilt. 7 has some appealing elements, but that's all it does for me. I like the last shot best. Normally a shot like that would require some negative space, but the way you captured the rooster tail it's not necessary. I love the sharpness of that image. Great work.

Love #1, #9, #10.
#1: I like how it shows both a pattern with the riders positioned the same, but the dirt flying everywhere also gives it that total craziness that is a motocross start... great combination of totally opposite forms, nice.
#9: The red bike off in the grass makes this shot great. I wouldn't like it as much if he wasn't there doing his own thing
#10: Great composition, like it was said earlier the roost fills the space and adds to the action of the bike. I'm glad the goggles are clear as the eyes make the shot better too.

Very hard to get around the odd angles but the action is VERY intense when they make the turn and then get on the gas to come back up, the hill is STEEP.

thanks! #5 the jumper takes on a whole new perspective when the story line is known. That is Gared Steinke riding the pro national round at Unadilla. He's holding down 4th place on the last lap of the 4 lap LCQ where the top 4 make the gate for the main event. which at the outdoors (motocross) is two 30 minute moto's as opposed to indoors (supercross) where the main event is one 20 lap dash (for the 450's - 15 for the 250's) but the tid bit of relevant info to the story line is Steinke rides the 250 class but as he opts to ride a two stroke he has to run a 125 vs the 250 four strokes. so making the cut at an outdoor national on a 125 against about 70 four stokes where only 40 get to the gate for the main event is fairly epic and basically every eye in that crowd knows it.
