Good image depicting this sport, good use of high angle viewpoint, nice composition, just works for me, maybe even a slower shutter speed from this viewpoint might give a cool effect also.

Thanks a lot for this mark of excellence! The picture was taken in March 2009 on a motocross race track in Pößneck/Thuringia (Germany). I shot it with a Canon Eos 40D and used a telephoto lens 2.8/200. The photo shows the first corner: whoever leads here stands a good chance of riding on without a crash. It's one of my favorite pictures - I love the colors, the dust, the angle and perspective, the action.
