what exactly was he doing?
was he balancing on the skateboard and juggling the torches the whole time?

Nice, but I have a feeling I would have liked this better in color.

What a great shot! That's one crazy skateboard trick. The b&w is very well done and I love the composition. What makes this shot, imo, is the fire in his hands, you captured it so well. Well Done!

Nice capture - Has the whiff of the UK all over it? Like the centered composition and the flames - Nice shot. Maybe could have been a little more dramatic if it was a silhouette with rich blacks.

You backed up your primary subject with some good complimentary peripheral subjects. The silhouetting works well. Nicely done!

High marks this round. Nicely done. Nice sihouette and can make out the faces too.

Great processing. Very effective shot. Pity it was Basic Editing as the bright highlights of the building on the left would have been burned down nicely in advanced editing rules. 9
