A big THANK YOU is going out to the four guys in the background who helped me screaming at the riders to throw some style over the jump!

Selected by Sterling Lorence - I will admit, I am a sucker for snapped out whip shots like this. The whip has great dynamic and is especially sick when scrubbed, and simply is one of the coolest looking tricks our sport has to offer. Wide angle lens choice was good here. Helps lift the rider up, and also gives us a combo of blue sky across the top and a balanced share of race course detail and the table top. Shooting long lens here pushes the riders into the forest too much and makes for dark shots. The nice morning side lighting here at Sea Otter brings good contrast and colour across Danny and his bike, and also brings to life the peanut gallery on the lower left. Props to the photographer for being there early. Composition is dialed, but it would have been cool to see what happened one or two frames later too. Nice POD!
