OK.. Here ya go.. Notice that beceause the traffic was so slow today, I got out on the course for some close ups... The challenge was, being this close, the depth of field was very reduced. Sorry....

If only the background was just the sky.

You got the action all right - the setting of course does get in the way of otherwise cool captures.

I prefer the background to not be just sky. With the background being "stuff" you can get a good feel for them being in the air. I especially like the third one where it gives the illusion of the boarder jumping higher than the chairlift. Dang I really need to get back up the mountain . . .

Love seeing these action sports captured. Keep them coming! It does look like in #3 the guy is getting ready to do a board slide on the cables. However, maybe at least crop the people on the lift out of #2.
