Thanks for taking the time to comment below. The eyes were definitely the focus point but the face may have been a bit bright. My first impressions were correct though, the photo had no photographic merit whatsoever and has been erased from existance.

Dear GAZMORTON2000,

Nice to see the 5DmkIII in action, thank you. Sometimes with candid’s it is hard to get multiple shots - enjoy the one you got!

Overall good shot with nicely composed/framed proportion of bokeh. However the portrait’s perimeter(motorcycle helmet & jersey) appear to be more in focus than the subjects eyes & face which appear a tad overexposed (perhaps the camera wasn’t focused on the eyes?). Indeed great capture of the tone of competitive mental concentration required to “clean” a trials section and also for the consistency to be a 12 times world trials champion.
Thanks again for sharing.


Mary

P.S. Gee, you shouldn’t have deleted the image, as it captured a special moment in time of a remarkable rider and I, as only one but of likely many, enjoyed viewing it.


MARY

I'm curious to know why someone would post an image then shortly thereafter delete it. I have seen this fairly often.

My personal reason is because, I look around the forum at photos that other people post, photos that I aspire to, photos that I would love to be able to create, and I am way, way, way off the mark. I know the argument to this is to leave the photo up and receive comments etc, take them on board and use them to improve, but I'm getting really frustrated with my stuff being so far behind at the moment. Apologies.

Yeah but if you remove the picture, you can't get anymore feedback. Without feedback, you can't improve.

Behind what? This isn't a competition. A photo is what it is to any given person. I see all of the comments made regarding all of the photos here........too dark, too light, too soft, change this, remove that......gimme a freekin' break. Guess what...all of these comments are opinions. I get much more from trying different things than I do from having others express their opinions of my photos.

We all want others to like our work, but the most important thing is for you to enjoy making your pictures. Shoot some real bombs.....you bet. I know I do. So what. Heck, if nothing else, have a few laughs over them. At the same time, when you look at them I'll bet you can see why a particular photo might not have turned out the way you had planned.

Above all, don't be intimidated by others here being less than complimentary. I think most everyone here is pretty mature and offers criticisms only with the intent of trying to help.

Fear not, my friend. Take some solace in the fact that most everyone here is just like you and me: a hobbyist that happens to shoot a really good one now and then. Post some of your pictures. I'd like to see some.
