This picture was taken by a friend with Nikon D7000. I am the one who is holding the (a77 attached on a monopot with the screen turned to the frond, Remote cable release) to take the faces of the bikeriders

Gosh....looks pretty dangerous to me! One stone flying in your direction....I had the "pleasure" of going with a speedboat through the Everglades today. During the two hours trip I had tons of "bugs" being killed on my forehead, or so I thought. Turned out the bugs were pieces of grass that were cut off by the boat. Frankly that was not very pleasant, so imagining a stone could hit me, as in your situation would be probably a million times worse!

I think I'd rather go with the telephoto from a distance - how on earth do you manage to keep it steady on a long pole like that?

Not so easy to hold the Camera with grip and lens at about 1.5 meter long away from your body. After this test is better to attach a ball head on monopot insteat of the one way tilding head. There were angles that i couldn't get easily.

Next motocross i  am planning another way to take extreme pictures  but not me and camera in too much danger.

We will see :)

Nice work. good to see a different angle on things.

Don’t argue with a fool. The spectators can’t tell the difference.

Hopefully I am not biased Rex but I prefer your shots.  Your friend's look over worked to me.  Too much sharpening gives an artificial look....john
