Not entirely sure why this didn't score higher. It was surely one of the best in the challenge. I like the processing.

Only critique I would make is that from the right of the white pole over should be cropped out of the shot. They pull the viewer away from the skater... ah, but if you do that you lose the rest of the word Landing... In that case, when you're staging your shot and getting your camera in position, try to notice the background elements that may detract, and reposition yourself so they're no longer in frame.

I like the way the guy on the bike leads the viewer to the subject. Good composition

I love the way you've framed the skateboarder under the lettering. Very nice choice of coloring, and the composition works very well imo. One of my favs in this challenge. 9

Excellent capture of both street activities and a street "feel". Not to mention very good timing and placement of your subjects in the frame. The whole lensbaby-type thing works for this, too. Would be a nice shot without the foreground subject, but is a way better shot with him and his bike.

Lets hope he stays is suspension for ever... LOL
I love the 'action' of this shot, and the anticipation of the older (assuming age because of the veins on the hand) viewer with the bike.... Great story in this photo. The lines of the boards are well presented.

just a tad too much on the left, but still an amazing shot.
love the zoom effect, works well for the subject.

What an excellent capture! Quite cool to have the word "Landing" in the background. And I love the position of both the skater and the skateboard.
