I took this shot during a practice run at last year's freestyle skiing mogul worldcup at Ski Mont-Gabriel, on january 24th. The athlete, Vincent Marquis, won the gold medal at this competition. He is on the canadian national freestyle ski team and will be competing at the 2010 winter olympics in Vancouver no later than tomorrow. With friends, I will be following his performance at my local ski resort on Sunday evening. We wish Vincent the best of luck. Go for it man!

Image saisie l'an dernier à la coupe du monde de ski acrobatique à Ski Mont-Gabriel, pendant l'entrainement. Le skieur, Vincent Marquis, s'est mérité la médaille d'or lors de cette compétition. Il fait partie de l'équipe nationale canadienne de ski acrobatique et demain il va compétitionner aux jeux olympiques de 2010 à Vancouver. j'aurai la chance de suivre cet évènement important en bonne compagnie à ma station de ski locale. Vas y Vincent, nous sommes avec toi!

Hi Michel,
that's realy fantastic, I love that moment so much. Excellent sharpness on the man and I also love the blurred BG.
Very well done, a fantastic action shot with brilliant colours.
Enjoy the weekend

Great action shot Michel - perfect focus and unusual angle of the skier work well, especially with the inclusion of the chairlifts in the BG to give us the orientation..

Nice one

Wow, you've stopped him perfectly in mid-air .. so crisp and sharp! He almost looks 3-D here!
We will be seeing a lot of this sort of thing in the next few weeks .. I'll be watching for him also :)

Hi Michel..nice shot..very sharp...well done.


WOW that's an original pose to capture someone :-D Great timing, but most of all: perfect sharpness! Great lighting and a beautiful blurred background. Very well done!

TFS Greetings Simone

Salut Michel
Très belle prise de vue. L'éclairage de côté module bien les contrastes et la couleur. Tu t'en tires très bien avec ce parfait contrôle de la profondeur de champs rendant les chaises floues à l'arrière plan. Je suis d'accord avec David : les chaises nous donnent l'orientation. Bravo !!!

Hi Michel,
Que dire à part que tu as fait un "shoot" à faire pâlir de jalousie un pro de la photo sportive.
Exceptionnel le focus sur le skieur !

Hi dear Michel ,
So nice shot at interesting moment.
Very well done

Kind regards
