crop the first one ??

Tyler,

You have some good shots there!! I really like the first one.. I wonder if it might enhance it if you cropped it down so the people were not in the background and there wasn't so much dirt in front???

Just thinkin out loud... Thanks for Sharin.. Kim

Thanks Kim. I might try cropping some of these. good idea.

I will say though, the K100D held up pretty well auto-focusing on these bikes even when they were flying. I had some OOF but not too many. Hopefully the K200D will be better.

Ah cool! A minitrail!

I had one of those as a kid (and it's still rolling, I gave it to my uncle for his grandkids!), and it looks like the little dude is enjoying his as much as I did mine when I was his age!

Its a water tank. Our neighborhood is on a series of community wells and next to each pump is a big tank that holds the water.

Tyler, I have a k100D Super.. and love it.. Your bikes might of been going faster than these snowmobiles.. https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/post-your-photos/16997-more-snowmobile-fun.html ... but I found it worked great as well...

I think next time I will try to "pan" more and follow the machines instead of picking a spot to focus on..

Action photos are addicting.... and they are very rewarding when you get "that" shot!!!

Anxiouse to see your next venture!! Kim
