  • My biker shots...

    In the September holidays we headed over to South Australia for the Australian MotoTrial Championships. My son was entered into Open Junior and my husband in Twinshock.

    My husband came 7th and my son came 2nd (in Australia!) so we were really happy. Here are some shots I took of them and also some friends.

    Once again, thoughts/comments appreciated.

    1. My husband

      I really like the intensity of the expressions in the first three pics.

          Geez, one of these days you'll post an image I don't like Kate.

          Today is not the day.

          These are superb.

          Love the processing too, you have a quite unique style and I find your work inspiring.

            I love watching trials, it requires so much rider skill. It does not have the speed or thrills of moto X, but so much better I reckon.

                #2 and #3 can live years to come.

                  You've nailed these Kate, #2 is a wall hanger - so much intensity!

                    Great Kate - agree with Andrew - #2 should be hanging on a wall somewhere

                      Thanks Andrew and Alan - Tim's mum is of the same opinion and has asked for it to be printed large and it will be part of his Christmas present apparently.

                        Thanks Peter, the wife and mum of these two has asked for a storyboard of her husband and the old bike and also for the one of her son to be printed large - she is thrilled.

                          I think it is the same bike Richard - the Beta? All of these are with the DSLR - I just couldn't get into the groove of shooting at the trial. We would drop the boys off, help them set up and then my daughter and I would go off and have a nice breakfast somewhere and a walk and come back around 12ish and find that they only had one lap to go. The Aussie Titles were not that spectacular for us although Zac came second in Open Junior - we were happy - he? not so much! lol

                          Oh and I took lots with my phone!

                            Same Lloyd and South Australians seem to love Sidecar trials - now that is interesting! Hard work and they rip up the course but pretty good to watch!

                              Thanks for the lovely compliments - truly appreciated!
