Hello from the Critique Club

First Reaction was oh no you fell.. So I am a Mom. I think that way..

A good shot, could have had a shallower DOF and blurred the bg which does not add or take away anything of the picture.

Composition is good, I like the way it makes me feel like I am on the ground too. Good contact with the eyes. I like this in black and white, My only complaint is I would have liked to have seen just a little more of the skateboard.

Thanks for allowing me to critique your photo.

Keep shooting and have fun.

Nice composition - Looks like his face is a little out of focus which is distracting.

Fantastic action capture, and you have the eyes perfectly. I love the choice of black and white, brings out the contrast. I wonder if a short DOF would take focus away from the background and keep it on the skater. Great shot!

Looking at this photo, you have to question whether or not this is posed or an actual action shot. If it is an action shot, it does not really come across in this photo. Nice try.
