Seems like it was a nice day.
It was a nice day, but I was rather busy and tried to fit some pics in for the first time. Basically I forgot!!! I'm not that serious trust me.

Good point. People say I'm back sometimes and I work hard to feel shin contact. Thanks!

Single shots where the skier knows about the photographer and - maybe subconsciously - is looking at him/in his way are often misleading.
I would be satisfied with slightly less counter (hips, shoulders) especially when you don´t orientate your torso in the direction of the next turn (if you knew all the time you wouldn´t be making another turn - it might have been a last-moment decision)
Your right, I'm loooking for kind critiques
I'm having a problem with a strong outside leg. (Although the slope did fall away compared to where I started this turn, decreasing radius we say in motorcycling). To try and think/feel this right now, I stood up here at my desk I tride to simulate a better position. When I do that knee is always in a bit. Would you have a FEELING on the slope I can tune into for this??
Counter is the other area. I am ultimately trying to put together a nice set of transition photos I can work on. That transition point seems to be eluding me, at least in my mind some of the time.
Nice comments, thanks.

Oh yeah and the smile thing...
Who me, happy skiing when I could be here at working thinking about it!!!
Nice point on the shoulders hands and slope/feet/knees. I was wondering what the take might be. I had a clinic a while back where basically this would be the quote:
Your hands should match the relationship of your kness to the slope. Both in counter and horizontal placement (at a loss for words). Using this concept my right hand s/b a tad lower as is my right knee as comparied to my left knee. Make sence?
Any option here!?
BTW I really like epicski and hope to contribute rather than just be contributed to.
