Nice action shot. I'm surprise you were able to effectively freeze the action at just 1/160. Good on you. Man, I wish the photo were taken from 180 out though so you caught the face. This happens to me all the time too.
Is it possible to brighten things a bit? It looks a little dark to me. Do you see some weird pixelation in the background? I do.   Posted: 09/11/2020 18:50:52

INDRANEEL,
DIFFIDENTLY CAUGHT THIS MAN AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME, I THINK THE REASON YOU WERE ABLE TO FREEZE THE ACTION WITH SUCH A SLOW SHUTTER SPEED IS THAT THE RIDERS WHEN THEY REACH THE APEX OF THE JUMP THEY JUST HANG THERE FOR A SECOND BEFORE RETURN TO EARTH, SO A GOOD JOB THERE.
AS WAS BROUGHT OUT IT IS DARK, PERHAPS AN INCREASE IN ISO WOULD HAVE HELP, AND WITH THAT MAYBE YOU CAN INCREASE THE SPEED.
AS FOR THE PIXELATION IN THE SKY, THAT COULD BE FROM TOO MUCH CROPPING, AS WITH A 35 MM AND AT A SAFE DISTANCE THE RIDER WOULD HAVE BEEN FAIRLY SMALL.

Indraneel what a great capture. I do wonder what you cropped out. I want to know more of this story rather than just a rider in a vacuum.
Nice moment in time however.   Posted: 09/17/2020 23:41:22

Wow! That looks really scary! You did a great job with freezing the motion. I wish I could see his relationship with the earth to give it more of a story. You might lighten his chest just a bit. As others have said, I wish we could see his face but I know that often isn't possible. There is also some haloing around some of his body especially arms. I usually get that when either I have over sharpened, have too much dynamic range between background and subject and maybe have brought up shadows too much, or when it is a composite   Posted: 09/18/2020 15:10:59
