Just the one photo for now sorry, and a simple one at that. Haven't had much time to get out, and haven't posted anything here for a while, so I thought I'd chuck something up anyway. 5D, 135L @ f/2. Naturally lit.

Andrew, old school as it is, its tough to beat the style of a dialed toboggan. Nice capture. Looks like his arm and shirt a little on the hot side but I'd say you can recover some of that. Otherwise, I really like this in every aspect.

Thanks Scott, I agree about the toboggans. They're definitely one of my favourite tricks after good clean tables and barries.

I'd call it boosted, but not dialed...maybe it's just the timing? :)

Either way, great shot.

That's an awesome photo. f/2 looks brilliant. I don't mind that he's on the right heading out of the frame either, I think it looks cool.

Love the shot. Tobaggans, tables, inverts, and tail whips are the best in air tricks to me. ha ha

I think someone like Joe Rich has the most dialed on the first 3 tricks. ha ha

Looks so good. I don't like ambient lit pics usually, especially bmx, but that looks great. Arms don't look hot on my monitor either. I think it looks great.

Thanks! I'm typically one for using flashes etc also (see my flickr for examples), but I've been really enjoying some more natural light shooting recently - I find it can be very pleasing if the light is right, particularly with nice afternoon sun.
