This shot is from my 1st ever pro motocross race. I had a Nikon D5100 and a nikon 50 1.8 G. This was over the finish line jump. I wanted to try some shots dragging the shutter so this was f16 at 1/60 and very cropped in. I got a ton of bad ones but the shot was wide enough for me to keep them center in the frame fairly well. This is Ryan Dungey who retired as is now making a comeback. I did end up printing this and getting him to sign it at a later race. That now hangs in my house. Now you noticed the focus is actually on the boot. Nike made his boots as a one off that never went to production. I love this shot and wish I could of sold it but no dice.
