Photo receives Highly Commended Award in SISLP Sporting Moments Competition

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.
