Love the guy's expression. Tiny bit grainy. 8

I love the facial expressions these guys get when they are deep in concentration. Nice shot and good luck

Man, too bad about that dumpster, etc., in Basic. Your subject looks a little older than most pursuing this sport, which adds to its applicability to the challenge! Pretty old to be working without a net. Very skillful.

great capture, maybe just a little more sharpness would really make it stand out.

Nice shot, but I would recommend a lower angle showing him over the lip of the pool and get rid of the RIDGID box in back that distracts from the shot.

not sure why, but I like that you kept the RIDGID case in the shot

Well not bad but cause of the DOF and angle you shot this from, the "Ridgid" box in the backround draws my eye more than the skater does, at least at first.

Great gravity defying stop-action photo. The background is the drawback here, not only is that construction box butt-ugly, but it's also in the worst possible place for your photo. Things like that are tough to see when you're panning for the capture of a great action photo, so they have to be seen and planned for in advance.

nice shot; if the background were cleaner it would do much better.

Nice capture - Like the tones and angle but really let down by the orange bin with writing and all that trash on the floor.
