Processed in photoshop. Channel masks, some pen tooling, etc, seperated the rider, ground, and sky, and made individualized curves masks for all of them, and adjusted to taste. Made a black and white adjustment layer and set to overlay, adjusted sliders to taste, and reduced opacity. Dodge and burn where appropriate, and cloned out a dude standing slack-jawed right in the middle of the scene.

5d, 15mm fisheye! And some clever jury-rigging. Would love any feedback.

Ya I here ya not to many people comment on biking pixs here.

The fisheye makes the kicker look huge. I defiantly like the perspective. Hope you weren't standing on the top rung of the ladder. The only nip pick I could think of is that I would like to see the rider closer to you to fill up the shot more.

I like the processing and shooting angle a lot. To the biking crowd, there's not gonna be any ohhh's and awww's over the trick (or lack of) but the image is solid nonetheless. The trails look sick. How the heck do they get water out there to build and maintain?

As for crit, tight pants and striped shirts make me giggle. The irony is how such a self proclaimed, non-conformist group such as bmx'ers, try so desperately to look a certain way that they all wind up looking the same thus creating their own conformity. Ride on.

The fisheye lens did you good! It does look as though you were on top of a 20 ft. ladder.

I seen a pro photog at Crankworx bike fest in Whistler this year with a camera attached to a 15 ft. extension pole for a similar effect.

Hahaha, this is all true, but really, in this day and age, is anything unique anymore? Hardly, it seems.

Thanks - I'm always trying to get a unique perspective.

Sh*t hot PP!
If I had the time to practice, I'd love to be half as good with Photoshop.
