    The 2012 DH/FR Your Best Shot of the Year Thread

    Since we did one of these last year, we should make it a tradition. It's only February, lots of you guys will be snowed under still, but I'm sure there's already some great shots out there. I'll start us off, here are a couple of me, taken yesterday by my good friend Reuben Shaul:

    This is from a race up in Wisconsin. Funny thing is I didn't realize I was putting any style into any of the jumps till I saw this pic.

    gonna be the ******* here, but if you don't realize you're doing that in the air, you're probably not very good/riding dangerously stupidly, and probably shouldn't be in the air that much.

    But honestly, I bet you realize that you're steezin, and you just didn't realize you were getting it that steezy, in which case I take it all back!

    edit: also, because opinions are like a5sholes, heres some content of my own!

    haha, yeah I guess I knew I was putting some style into it I just didn't realize I was throwing the steez down.

    edit: I just realized that this is for 2012 pictures and not last years

    Much better colors, yes. But I don't think the cropping works with the fence, you'll need to leave at least a little sky in there still. The original has a nice sense of size and scale to it, there is room for a little cropping for sure, but maybe not as much as your second version. My two cents'...

    YES! I was racing that day too, all the pics Joe took of me were on the steeper rocky part just before this jump. Sounds like they will be bumping the race up to early spring this year.

    noted, thanks for the advice, i was thinking the same thing, but wanted to try this too. I'll work on the cropping a little more.

    Agreed with other poster - colors yes, composition:no...

    Moosey, check out the photography rule of thirds and keep it in mind when you are cropping. This is a very elemental form of adjusting image composition to make it more appealing to the human eye.

    So far this year, I'm liking these. Not so much for the riding content but from the photo aspect, pretty sweet.

    Thanks William42. Your drop photo looks sick! Would love to have stuff like that to ride.

    Ustemuf, that photo is too amazing for words. Thanks for a good laugh.
