p.1 #1 · Snowboard Competition


Hey guys - new to this forum but starting to try my hand at sports shooting. The mountain where I work and live is hosting a snowboarding competition this weekend - decided to head out and get some shots. All are taken with a 5D Mk II and a 70-200mm 2.8L II IS. Minimal post processing (sharpening mostly).

C&C always appreciated!

In no particular order:

#1.







#2.







#3.







#4.







#5.







#6.







#7.







#8.







#9.







#10.







#11.

I'm likin' #4. If you get another chance you should work that angle hard.

These are great. You really used backgrounds and angles to your advantage. I enjoyed looking at these.

Good thing he had clean underwear on in #11.

4 and 6 are my two favorites and I agree with Marty about working the angle more.

That last one is quite a face plant

Really like the series, 3, 4, 6 are my favourites. 11 - good thing that snow looks soft, otherwise that would really hurt.

Very nice series; you really know how to make an impression....

4 & 5 are spectacular with that context

Outstanding, reminds me of those Olympic shots from Barcelona w/ the great urban backgrounds. Like the face plant too.

Thanks everyone! Was a fun shoot.. definitely love the angle of 4 & 5.. have some others shot at that angle too. Hopefully they leave the ramps up and I'll get out to shoot some more from there.

Look forward to being involved more in the sports forum.

I guess you don't need a 5Dlll to nail focus I also like 4 the most, just wished it had a little of the snow at the lower half to give it more context.

TanouyeCHris - Yup this was the Quicksilver Showdown.

Thanks C and Vivisha... I did have numerous OOF shots I have a 1DX on pre-order heheh.. can't wait for that auto-focus.. but in good light and with a good lens (70-200 II) the 5D Mk II can nail it pretty well...

#4 did have some snow in the bottom but decided to crop it out to see how it looked since in #5 I left the snow in.

Very nice set. And that last one had to hurt like hell. I'm glad the young kids are doing that and not me.
