About the Image(s)

With my daughter dabbling in ski racing this winter I was out with my camera capturing ski race photos of many of the kids racing. l liked this location as I was positioned as they turned towards me with the sun providing some highlights. I really like the view in the goggles that show's where the skier is headed.

Within LR corrected white balance, enhanced shadows and highlights

Maybe on a bigger screen, I'd really be able to appreciate the goggle reflections, but in this view, most of what I see is the determined body posture to make that turn! That's brilliant! I love the plume of snow from her carving leg. Perhaps the goggle reflections could be enhanced by a change in contrast so it doesn't look so much like the snow surrounding the view, and shows more of the detail within the lenses.   Posted: 03/11/2023 12:31:08

Great reflections in the googles and great leading lines. The bright area of snow and many angles make the image interesting.
Perhaps the skier could be a little lighter.   Posted: 03/24/2023 13:11:07
