Did a bit of the usual stuff to it (levels, sharpening), plus cloned out a light post and raised saturation on the skateboard to bring out the bits of color.

I really like this shot. I think it is incredible when someone manages to capture a split moment in time like this. The only thing I would suggest to improve it is probably to clone out some of the smaller things in the background so that it doesn't look so busy. I would also increase your curves a bit to make it really pop out at you. Fantastic action shot.

I didn't enter this challenge because I'm not much of an action photographer (besides, my camera has a hard time stopping a snail). I would have given this at least an 8 - I think you did a wonderful job freezing the moment. Nice work!

Great action shot but let down for me by background (not interesting enough to warrant my attention but too evident to avoid my focus) and by lack of lighting on main subject. On the other hand the pose you have captured is just great.

Nice capture - framing could have been better, with more of the bowl and and a tighter crop on the right (less bland sky).

WOW! Awesome capture AND composition. There are some skateboard pictures in mid-action, but this is the best so far at showing an amazingly composed picture as well! Good luck!
