Another from yesterday's motorcross action and another shot that I had been visualising (well, close enough). The look of sprayed dirt or water, frozen in mid air, really appeals to me so I've been wanting to capture a shot with this effect for some time. I know this would be better if the rider was more in focus and I actually have a couple like that but none with the same balance I was after.

Ela I think this is a really nice shot. I don't think the fact that the rider is not completely in focus spoils the picture in any way.Quite the opposite. I think the rider could even be out of focus a bit more as this slightly "blurred" silhouette gives the shot a
bit more of an artistic feel and transfers the attention from the rider to the dirt ... but then it depends how you wanted this shot to work.
