#1 - Just enough background to give a little perspective. After seeing the 1st the 2nd seems like its missing something.

I like 'em both. Really, really clean shots, I love pictures like these. No crowding what so ever, and the clarity is AMAZING. I love photography myself, but mostly landspaces, especially rivers and forests, so I chose the first one.

Bah! It's just a camera phone :p
Thanks for the kind words.
Thanks to everyone for the comments. Been an interesting "test" for me and actually came out just about like I thought it would (majority liking the landscape). Sometime I'll post why I think that is.

I like scenery in motocross pictures. Gives more feeling for where the rider is at on the track rather than just in a turn or in the air.

I gotta pick the first one.

For an action shot to work, there has to be context. Take out the context and it is just a pretty motorcycle.

Sort of like the TV coverage the they sometimes do of simply following a bike around an MX track. The racing is lost if we can't see the track, and the other competitors.

The 2nd one concentrated more on the bike and the turn. But ive seen that all before what defines a pic for me is the background and scenary. Good pic

I like the first one better. I think that one showed more landscape, which was sweet, and you could see most of the picture in one screen, without having to scroll down.

I would like seein the first one so that I can tell more of the teritory, what situation the riders facing = a realistic picture. the second looked to have more intensity on the rider, more of what you can find in the magazine hype. thou I did see a kdx 200 blasting throu th trails on an offcamber single track wheelie appearing to go another 75 feet in a magazine.

#1. Causes my eye to move across the picture... brain sees more of a horizontal effect on the rider. Second picture causes my eyes to move up and down, brain converts to a more upright interpretation of the rider (not as aggressive).

I like the first one. Gives more of a feel of the action to me plus it puts the rider's torso in the center of the pic so it seems balanced to me where the second one does not.

i like the 2nd one because i can see the rider more vividly (color wise of course) and you can see his eyes staring at the camera better
