I like to see the first one because it shows more dirt, and gives me a better idea of what he's working with.

Personally the background in #1 gives depth to the picture. Focus on rider good with beautiful background that does not overpower frame.

Nice dirt!

Looks like the stuff in Burleson, TX. The dirt in AZ sucks! I remember tires lasting forever in Texas, out here they die in one weekend.

It would be nice if the guy with the camera would have taken the shot 1/2 second later and captured some roost.

I like the first better because your use of negative space. You get more of what is going on and less of just a rider on a bike

number 1

I prefer the first one, it gives a better sense of motion, draws the eye to all aspects of the frame ... the soil flying away from the rear wheel, the leg thrusting forward, the lopsided grin on the helmet :-) Great pic!

Both! The first one is good for maybe just a nice picture. The second one is better for a poster.

I think the first is a better picture - I've been a professional photographer for 12 years....the first is balanced, and your eyes are drawn to the center. The second is off-balance, and unlike most fun action shots that look great up close, this one doesn't work. Now...if you had cropped it even closer, and cut off some of the bike/helmet......then it would work :cool:

Reply to awesome photo work

I like the first, how ever they're both excellent. The only thing that I would be bold enough to suggest is a huge mountain range in the background with 3000 wildly enthusiastic fans cheering the rider on. :yeehaw: Best Regards, Porkchop...

It's a tossup for me. I tend to favor landscape over portrait, generally speaking. I could see this one cropped tight on the bars/helmet/eyes area, also.
+1
landscape over portrait
