Nice motion stop! But the faces in the crowd really make it for me (especially the girl on the right!) 10 I hope you do really well

Excellent shot, love the haze created through the flames

Great capture! And I think what I like best is the look on the spectator's faces, especially the kids! Great job... 10 for me!

Good timing. 9

I like it. The distortion of the people in the crowd from the heat waves is very interesting.

This is one instance that I have seen where you would be in trouble with or without a net. Nice one. Did he make it through? 6

great action shot. I love the reaction of the kid on the bottom right hiding his face, but still peeking out. Priceless. 7 from me

This shot is pretty cool, one of the best in the challenge, gave it an 8. Dig the DOF. Think I would have vignetted it slightly or put a frame on it, my eyes kindof want to wander away from the center and that would fix that problem.

I love the boy on the lower right with his hands almost over his eyes!

One of the best I have seen of this genre.

Nice capture - Finally this has just come up in the last three images I am voting on - Phew! We will see this on the front page - It is my winner of the comp with a 10 - Great shot and love the heat trails.

good action shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2007 10:19:15 AM
Neat shot, I love the little kid's expression (w/ blue shirt) and the kid next to him with his head covered. I suppose that could distract from the true subject, but I like the shot!

08/30/2007 08:23:35 AM
Excellent capture! The croud is distant and hazy which works perfectly here. 9

Great shot. I like the action being frozen. A shallower DOF would have been the icing on the cake.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Shot well taken. Crisp and Colorful. Nice dof forces us to focus on skater. I am not a fan of square crops but it works ok here. High marks for a job well done.

Nice action shot. Meet challenge. Nice capture of the children's faces.

Great capture and execellent choice for the theme. Nice DOF>

Love the effect of the heat on the crowd!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2007 03:32:11 PM
thats so cool what are those berning things?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2007 03:29:27 PM
Awesome shot. Great isolation of the subject without completely losing the background. I love the kid in the striped shirt (lower right) who's just convinced something terrible's going to happen.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2007 02:51:41 PM
Amazing. Great image you've captured here. The DOF is awesome with the skater in focus and the crowd only slightly out of focus. And to have that sharp of detail, and to get his facial expression at the decisive moment. Awesome.

Great capture.

Nice composition here, the expressions of the observers completes the photo nicely. Well done!

do you work for the toronto star? i think there was almost the exact same pic in the newspaper, unless it is the same. i love the looks on peoples faces in the background and everything.

08/29/2007 06:58:16 AM
good action shot, a more shallow DOF had enhanced the image further
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Awesome shot!

08/29/2007 01:13:16 AM
Wow I really like how you even caught the heat wave to up the intensity and great use of center weighted composition. 10

Love the look on those kids's faces
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Are those burning marshmellows? Great shot - I like the kid on the front row with his hands almost over his eyes...
