im not soo addicted to fast action/freeze shots soo this is a hard one for me
first try with multiple captures too i think

i had nogt much choice with the sky than this one..it was quite hopeless
also the flesh parts were all greyish blue..so with the skills available i really had to spent some time to get some colour in there without making it too artificial wich only succeeded half i think
anyway i think i catched the surfdude at a fine point

Would have loved to have the rest of the hand in the image, but do not despair at my comment, your image is quite electrifying as is.

poorly cropped, ovesharpenned and too much contrast, you've completely lost your background

wish his arm wasn't cut off

I would like this a lot better if the whole guy was in the picture, I think the arm would make a really dramatic visual. Still, nice capture and colors

The dude's face looks kind of orange...he doesn't have jaundice does he? Might want to see a doctor....

Also, I'd be interested to know why you cropped the arm off.

I would rather see the negative space in front of the skateboarder. As it is my eyes are drawn to the steeple not the action.

very nice. I would have scored it higher if he weren't cropped out.

You may have gone a little to harsh on the BG I feel, slightly less contrast would have really helped the image.

the background is great. My own taste, but I wouldn't have cropped the arm out of the image.

I like the capture and framing here. A little too overprocessed for my tastes though, especially on the skater..
