    Nice shots! I like the color balance youve got going. Not overly saturated like a lot of the stuff nowadays.

    Thanks...but have no fear, I got some oversaturation! I am all over the map, just go with what my eyes like, not what everyone else likes.
    Thanks for comments.

    Greg on his way to the Slalom win




    Bryn sliding into the right turn before the long straight in slalom...I did not desaturate the BG or any of that selective color crap, just underexposed scene and popped him with my 580 flash on camera.

    Yeti guys had the ugliest helmets, except for Rich Houseman, when I saw them coming I did not even hold camera up to shoot.

    $10 says that as I write this, Tobler's on the phone with Intense discussing proper guide set up (and then bullsh!tting for 30 minutes about other various items).

    Droooool at that technique. I'm trying soooooo hard to burn that technique into my riding style. Taking a 3-day DH clinic and learning how to properly turn has been the best thing to happen for my riding.
