    Hey, I like the entire series very much and I think you did well in photoshopping those that you worked with (all? most?) --- the ones against the light, with almost silhouetted people are very nice, like the first of your brother going out to the park, I really like that one a great, great deal! And also the group of skaters! Very nice. Or the one of yourself saying "Hey, I'm going big, what now?" That is very nice. Funny expression. :D And I like the DOF.

    Also that jump shot of the board and legs and their shadow... very nice.
    And is the pavement really this blue there?
    Nice texture pic with the low light, and good atmosphere photo of the lying board.

    Like I am saying: very appealing series!!!
    I am surprised you haven't got any more comments so far.

    Cool series and good PS technique! Almost a "day in the life of" story there - looks like a great day for skating!

    Corinna - the pavement is blue , its an old wading pool that the park doesnt use anymore so they threw some ramps on there for skaters.. i appreciate ur comments! i think i was at least 10 years older than the other kids there lol

    These are excellent... bet all the boys loved them! Don't suppose you want to share with an 'ameteur' how you got those great dark tones in #1 3 & 4??? Would love to learn xx Do you sell your shots to the other guys? I reckon you should if you don't already x
