Holy Moly Batman! They have greatly advanced the El-Rolo!! Great capture, maybe needs a little sharpening to make him pop off the background a little (haha) Thats a crowded lineup.

WHOA! Cool boogy board flip! Unfortunately, the colors are a bit flat, the lighting on the subject is too dark, the focus is suspect, and the composition is lacking. It has the WHOA but not the WOW!

Good capture. Technically I believe you can improve the picture's color, tonal range and sharpness, but good timing with the shot.

Excellent action capture. The only reason I wouldn't vote it with my top picks is the centered composition and blown highlights on the board.

Ahhh - the flying coffee table (looks like it in the thumbnail).
It's a great thing to get older, as I have no idea who's this image was, even after seeing and commmenting on it before. One thing I do remember, is that I really liked this shot a lot. Congrats on a fine submission and an amazing sense of timing (or luck) pressing the shutter. Well done.

Very good catch. A little levels adjustment would set this one off.
