I know I already commented, but man. This shot is amazing. As a photographer myself I spend alot of time looking at amazing photos. So much that it's easy to become desensitized to even the best shots. But this shot.... I just keep coming back to it, and every time I'm half filled with jealous rage at the talent, and half stunned with awe. In the words of a photographer I really admire.."The human eye will spend an average of about 2.5 seconds on an image. A successful image is one that can make the viewer look longer than that." You definitely have a successful photo here. Nominated for POY.

Behind the Lens - Matt Wragg
2) When submitting photos to magazines (or even during your work with pinkbike) what steps did you take in your selection process? What things will almost always result in the photo being rejected? 3) Where can someone find good technical post-processing techniques? I know I'm not perfect, and I want to learn everything I can. But what bugs me alot is, that 9 times out of 10 any tutorial I can find is incredible vague or overly basic. I'm a little frustrated with finding tutorial after tutorial on how a faster aperture will give you a "blurry" background, and almost nothing on the subtle changes a photographer will make to really refine their photos into professional quality pieces and works of art. Is this something that can be found, or does one simply need to find another more skilled photographer to help guide them?

Behind the Lens - Matt Wragg
Great interview, and it helped me to take a fresh look at my photography. One thing I've noticed about a lot of these Behind the Lens interviews is that many of these guys have been making the transition from amateur to professional at around two to three years. Which is where I am. For the past three years I've avoided even contemplating the word "professional" simply because I wanted to learn elements of composition/lighting/post processing etc. I've gotten to a point where, even though my photos are still imperfect, I've begun making a name for myself in the local community and have had a few requests for sports photography.I don't know if Matt will read these comments, but if he has a moment I'd like to ask him a little bit more about making the leap from amateur to professional. 1) How do you fund your start-up costs? Obviously one needs a camera, but all of the other things- website, travel expenses, extra gear etc... whenever I sit down and crunch the numbers I find that I just can't afford to set myself up in a professional way. It feels like a horrible catch 22- can't market myself professionally until I have the money, won't have the money until I can charge myself professionally(REALLY REALLY trying to avoid the "Facebook" photography business page as it seems anyone with an iPhone has one).

Still disagree. Coming from an area with very similar dirt all I can say is that the dust clouds look just fine. That and the fact that your accusations of him inserting such a prolific rider such as Kyle Strait into his photo is the equivalent of calling the photographer a fraud with no artistic integrity. I can't speak for the photographer himself, but as a photographer myself I know how much time, effort, and planning it takes to get a short even half this good. I can see what robb was talking about with the double exposure, but with a skilled eye it's not too hard to get this kind of shot with a single exposure. I personally would love to hear how this shot came to be and what techniques went into is development.

I am an English major and approve this ridicule.

I'd have to disagree. I'm not sure what Brian Camp's post processing routine is, but all that looks to be adjusted here are the "levels", and a very slight touch of saturation.

Not to sound like a jerk, but that's not Dan Atherton's GT Sanction. Dan is number 62, that my friend is Martin Maes' bike.
