    Congratulations Jade! I see many are talking about the snow in the foreground, and even a mention of a teal color. The color may be due to the spray markings they usually use around the gates. Is that what has happened here? If not, it's a damn good excuse! LOL! GREAT capture!

    Get used to it Jade. If given the chance they blow by us as if we are standing still on every front. I taught my son the elements of programming when he was 7 by the time he was 12 I had no idea what he was talking about :-) Nice of you to give her that chance though.

    Lo, Mepo, thanks. They have the steepest groomed run in Ontario at this site and the snow conditions and weather were unbelievable so I spent very little time taking shots. I was on skiis so no joining the boarders on the course. My competition this day was limited to pushing my own limits, mastering the double black diamond runs with my seven year old niece who kept skiing the last half backwards (just to show off)! (I say it's her freestyle skiis which gives her the edge!!) (She can blow me out of the terrain park and just kills me on aerials too!)

    Way to go Jade - double fours! I know you have a soft spot for snowboarding - did you compete?

    Four and four - well done. We guessed these were yours from the first look - that's meant as a compliment :-)

    Thanks everyone for the comments. Sorry the colour is a little off on the snow and the foreground was blown. I haven't played much in the snow with a camera on a bright day so I have much to learn.

    Maybe with lower ISO there had been less overburning in the snow,but otherways it is an excellent picture, in my favorites.

    Looks like some good planning paid off. Love the way the eye is lead through the shot.

    Excellent capture. The exposure on his face is perfect which under these conditions is challenging to say the least. I really like this one. Too bad about the blown out snow in the foreground, it's turned a bit teal around the edges.

    Great movement, excellent choice for the theme, and I love the detail in the snow

    Good action shot. Like the path movement for top right to left back to bottom right

    Nice action shot. Snow generally well exposed showing tracks but a bit blown bottom left. Nice job.

    thanks for the extra info I thought it was an EMT getting to a competitor who had lost it. Hope this one finished as fast as he thought
apart from that a good picture with snow red and dark colours all working together

    Think your entry in the Open is better. Snow got just a little hot in the foreground, like your comp.
