    First try at this, I am happy with them but would love some critique and what I can try to improve upon next time. Really not motivated to PP them much now, I am sure that it would be easy to PP much better than these, you are welcome to take a stab at it if you are bored. I wanted it to look like snow but also pop and be interesting.

    by the way here is my setup:

    This worked awesome, it took ~5 seconds to get the camera out and ready to shoot, I didn't hold up my friends at all. I skiied glades and bumps all day and felt like the camera was very safe and protected. I was extremely happy with the ease of skiing with it on. Just brought the d300 with 50 1.8+rubber hood. Next time I might try a 35 or 12-24 I just don't think the action shots will be as good.

    would you try a 50 or 35? It is hard to get in tighter when my friends just want to brap down the slopes and don't have any idea what I am dealing with. I told them where to go and they would forget haha.

    I agree that getting lower or more interesting angles would be much more interesting. I think I was to worried about exposure to think about composition durrrr
