Again, the contributions to Mission #2 of the BURN SNOWPARK RALLY shone with inventiveness and high quality. Polish photographer Adam Chrabaszcz and his rider Michal Gren perfectly realized the mission “Multi Angle” to take the top spot for this challenge.
Together with the winners of the other two missions, both crews will be invited to the end-of-season BURN SNOWPARK RALLY finals in Leogang, Austria, from April 7 to 10 2011. There, they will accomplish the winter’s last mission together with some Völkl pro riders and professional photographers. The victorious crews will join the Völkl pros at the All Inclusive Völkl Team Week 2011. Additionally, there’s a load of non-cash prizes up for grabs.
The last mission will end on March 14 2011. Check the best pictures of the first two missions and get further information from www.snowparkrally.com! In the meantime, check below for Mission 2′s top 5 so you’ll see what it takes to be amongst it…
1st place: Adam Chrabąszcz (POL). Michał Greń, Wallride. “Both pictures are just perfect! It’s obvious that lots of effort has been put into each single shot, e.g. the position of the flashes has been adjusted on each shot to achieve the best lighting situation possible. The left picture shows a superb composition with a nice fade from blur to sharpness and remarkably good lighting. And the right picture comes with an amazing composition, too and the structure of the wall is elaborated extremely well. The nice style of the rider completes the perfect execution of mission 2.”
2nd place: Christoph Enderer (GER) - hometrail “First of all the spot is really special. But the most outstanding part of this work is the realization of the double angle. Instead of taking very different camera positions – what most people did – the different angles were achieved with different lenses. The left with a fish eye and the right with more focal length. Great idea! The lighting was also done professionally as it’s not easy to do that right when the rider is on top of such a big obstacle. And of course the rider gets credits too: nice style and very well repeated!”
3rd place: Peter Buchebner (AUT) – igloos rock “Very nice double angle – you need the right picture to understand the left one. The rider’s style is pretty sick and captured nicely in the left photo, which comes with a really good framing. Unfortunately the right photo shows the rider from behind – something that should be avoided. But at least it explains the surroundings really well. The colors appear a little bit flat, something that could have been improved.”
4th place: Adam Laister (GBR) – Colour vs BnW “The left picture is pretty standard, but executed quite well. Especially capturing the nice sunset and a good usage of the flashes make it look good. The right picture comes with an awesome perspective that also shows the length of the rail. And especially the combination of the color and black&white photos result in a great double angle picture.”
5th place: Stefan Voitl (AUT) - Multi Engl “The idea of this photo is outstanding, no doubt. And you can definitely see the skills of the photographer. But the riding is just weak. For good snowboard photography, however, good action is essential. Furthermore the wordplay with the mission’s title and the rider’s outfit doesn’t add to quality in terms of snowboard photography either.”
