I too think this is a good candid shot. It was interesting reading all of the comments, and the different interpretation and perception of what is happening. I especially find it interesting that this is perceived as a "power struggle" and/or a "confrontation". I also found the "hand on the gun" comments interesting. Just saying...

wonderful emotion and image all around. Even though not a skateboarder, I think I, as well as "we", can understand the emotions of all involved. And isn't that what candid photography, let alone all art, is all about?

After seeing the rest of the photo, I think this is the best of the challenge, IMO.

I love it.....how the policeman even has a hand on the gun, the expressions, specially the young boy on the left ...this is great

The expressions of the three skateboarders is really well captured while the officer as the enforcement figure maintains some anonymity - nice picture

Man their faces just scream "Busted". The officers hand on his gun is great. Nicely captured it made me smile.

Compositionally and thematically strong. Too contrasty, way overboard on the Unsharp Mask. I assume from this that the image wasn't as sharply focised as you'd have liked, which is a pity.

Oh My, this one has got to be a winner, it sure fits the Candid category. Love the looks on the boys faces ..Love the muted tones here, too. The only thing I might have done differently is to crop the light brown area at the top, it is distracting,

Is he afraid that they are going to steal his gun or do policemen always have their hand on their gun in your country? On the other hand, that dude in the middle looks like Axle Rose so you really can't blame him. :)

Great ' Authority' pic too btw.

Great shot! WOW. The expressions are classic. It almost looks like a scene right out of a movie. Exposed great, composed decently, and a marvolous idea. You must have had your camera at the right place and at the right time. Bravo!
