I went down to the local skate park and told the guys there to do some jumps whilst I grab some photos. They didn't seem overly keen like they thought I must of been a cop or something but this guy didn't mind having a go! Not sure how this will go, sort of in two minds about entering but we'll see how we go!

Nice crop to keep the flying hat part of the shot. I helps keep the energy and movement apparent.

My hat's off to you !! Nice in-air photography. If the lighting on his face was a bit brighter this would be perfection.

Great shot! I wish we could see more of his expression but the hat flying off is a huge bonus! Great capture!

good shot, nice one. i think the flying cap adds a lot to this shot, i cant pin-point exactly why but for me it works, well done.

nice work. the colors are muted enough, though, to make me think this would have been stronger as a bw.

This is a tremendous capture - so clear. I love the composition and that there is no mess (trees/horizon) in the background - just lovely gray. Bumping to 9.

The flying cap really makes this photo stand out compared to others of its type.

Very nice. The diagonal line presented by the biker works well and the flying hat, well that's just a bonus! ;^) Great job on stopping the motion here. Only thing on the down side for me is the image seems slightly underexposed? Good luck in the challenge.

the light background works really nice here with the rider having on dark pants and dark hair. I love the DOF between him and the cloudy sky. Nice freeze action.
