    i met this young man yesterday. keith is his name and he's 12; been skating for half his life. of approximately 150 skaters in the park, i would say his technique was equal to or better than most. very self assured attitude! it was fun watching them:

    He does look confident in the first picture. Great capture on the second picture, really dig the gradient on the sky highlighting the subject and gradually getting darker. Excellent angle and composition as well. Very well done!

    A great photo always has its risks and this is a great photo from a risky angle. I see you have had no problem making the transition to action photography.

    Love the angle in the second. The conversions in both are very nice. You are really getting a hang of this action stuff :)
