Motocross Extreme Enduro 2011

Capturing motocross riders on camera is tricky, because you want them perfectly sharp but also need to try to convey movement (this is true for all motor sport photography). Here at the Extreme Enduro motocross event it was my first try at a decent two wheeled motor sport event and I learnt a lot. This riders eyes are perfectly sharp, but due to the high shutter speed it almost looks as though he is stood still. The shadow over his eyes nearly completely obscures the fact he is looking directly into my camera. Maybe next time I need to experiment more with flash and a circular polarising filter.
