1. in what area is critique to be sought?
Composition, Post processing
Trying to make it look more dramatic feel, better colors and etc
The Splash of snow not define enough, cant make it pop out to look more power
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
This is my 1st time trying out sports photography, was trying to capture a moment of power over nature, Speed and agility. The art and beauty of Sports. Hoping when people look at the pic thinking, the snow boarder got skills, look cool, standout.
3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
Extreme cold, -24 high up in the mountains. Not used to it, cant feel my fingers and face.
Was there for work, so not allowed to move around too much from where i took this shot.
Was shooting burst mode and hope i can go closer or a longer lens but i cant.
Took this pic with a D600, 70-200f2.8VRII at 200mm Max
1/800, f6.3, ISO200
Cropped it to tighter shot.
4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
Not good enough, very blend. Although i can do nothing about the posture and the type of stuns the snow boarder is doing, i feel i still didnt gave this pic the best treatment i could give.
I tried to make the colors,contrast pop out but either ends out too Fake or too blend.
Dont like the feel of the snow, looks grainy, maybe because i had to cropped alot.
