Grabless Spin by tahoe-sushi Grabless Spin by tahoe-sushi
EDIT!!: OMG! DD XD I'm on vacation for one weekend and my DA world explodes XD Thank you everyone! I REALLY appreciate it. I'm still new to this photography thing so this is a huge confidence booster for me! Thank you so so much!

Not me riding! Went snowboarding for the first time in 6/7 years this weekend. Oh how I missed it! I wont be going back for park and pipe like I used to...well maybe pipe, lol, but I AM definitely going back to take pics. This is one I got today. You'll be seeing a lot more of these from me. I left the vignetting because extreme sports and vignetting go hand in hand (thanks to fisheyes mostely), it felt wrong to get rid of them XD

This is a step up gap at Mammoth mountain Unbound Terrain Park.

What I did: only basic raw tweaks with landscape camera calibration setting, and unsharp mask with (100%, 0.2, 0).

Yea, I'm working on finding a way to surgically attach it to my hand. Unfortunately, my body keeps rejecting it. One day!

Great capture, really diggin it but I feel the vignette could be removed to make it better!

Yea, I thought strongly about it, but I didn't want to loose the sense of height but cutting out too much of the jump itself. I also figured I could get away with it a bit since it's so commonplace in the action sports world thanks to fisheyes. It wont be a problem in the future though. No more UV filters on this lens, just too much vignetting hassle XD

Oh yea. Spring skiing, and even winter skiing can get pretty warm sometimes. Always gotta plan for 50+ degrees.

Unfortunately, I was never able to talk to him and find out who he was =X I do not know if those are next seasons or not. I've been out of the game for about 6-7 years. This was my first day back actually. Got my season pass for next year though! HA! Can't wait!
