I've found that even if I don't think the photos are excellent at the time (again, how excellent can they be at 2'...) I always enjoy having them a year or so later and looking back at them.
The photography vendor changed at Thermal this year, so instead of Flying Horse it was ESI. I don't often notice the difference between show-photography-companies, but ESI definitely sends its people out with a slightly different shot list.
They do the normal jump photos, but they seem to have more of an emphasis on candids and back gate shots. Maybe they just have enough staff that they have the bandwidth for it, but I was grateful to see some less traditional images (especially when our division doesn't exactly produce wildly gorgeous jump shots..)
Anyway, whatever their plan is, they got one of my favorite images of Prair ever. So I bought a big 8x10
I haven't had a chance to scan this properly, so its a photo of a photo, but I love it. I love her expression, I love the angle, I love that my butt is just out of frame... I just love it.
Now I just need to find the right frame and place for it in the house...
I also snagged two small 4x6 prints of our "jumps".

|bad jump, but so many palm trees!!!|
Always nice to have something to remember the sunshine by. :)
