My pic of Jamie Barrow doing what he does best just received 'Highly Commended' in the SISLP Sporting Moments Competition.
The Daily Mail article showing it and the other winners here.
A little about the photo:
Camera - Nikon D7000
Lens - 18-105mm f/3.5
Shutter Speed - 1/500
Aperture - f/14
ISO - 100
Location - Val Thorens, France
Jamie and I were doing some off piste skiing/snowboarding with friends and came down the through the powder you can see in the background. I noticed up ahead and slightly below us a fresh patch of powder on a slight ridge. Before I even got to the location to take the photo, I had the exact image above in my head. I had a quick chat to Jamie to tell him where I wanted him to turn and then I skied down to the ridge, set up my camera and called for him to go. Jamie nailed the turn first time, getting this perfect spray of powder. In Photoshop afterwards I increased the contrast, sharpness and vibrance as well as removing a cable car wire from the background.
