I was lucky enough too shoot these pictures over Easter in Christchurch.
The weather really played its part.

These were shot with a Nikon D3s 24-70mm and 70-200mm

The shot of the rider in blue and black was pre-focused, they appeared over the jump so quickly and you weren't 100% sure when they coming.

C&C appreciated

Thanks Rob

I'd say these are as near to perfect as can be. nice wheel spin and sharp rider bits. Bravo

Very nice, you've now made me want to get along to the local BMX track next time there's a meet on.

how close to the action were you to the action for the first shot?

Thanks guys for the positive comments!!

It was under 10m for the 1st shot, well worth going along, there more than happy for you to get in amongst it.
This being the Nationals, they had barriers surrounding the whole track, and would only let 5 photographers on track at anyone time.
So you just took turns, very cool attitude.

That is cool, nothing worse than having another photographer popping up in all of your shots

Fantastic shots! Spot on focus on the eyes with just a hint of blur on the wheels.
