Some BMX dirt jump pictures I took in Firestone Colorado today. I processed all in photoshop and cloned out the flash in three of them. Would appreciate some C&C!

You might have benefited from a faster shutter speed. Otherwise, they look really exciting and I think you've managed to capture the speed and adrenaline of the cyclists. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the feedback

The only picture I would have wanted to frozen the action more on, was the one with several pictures in one, but the background was really dark so I had to use a slower shutterspeed. As for the others I think that a really fast shutterspeed would have taken away the sense of speed and any faster than 1/250 wouldn't have worked with the external flash anyway...
