    Kind of a neat shot, looks warn there. I think I would have gotten all the way on the ground and brought the board in closer so the dof would look better.

    You need to crop closer to the skateboard, there's too much space around it and the skateboard isn't what your attention is brought too.

    couldnt have said it better.. the vehicles and extra area are distracting... but its a good shot and once cropped tighter will even be enhanced...

    I find myself hanging on to the arms of my chair so that I don't slide to the left.

    ^the angle was intentional.
    i cropped it as many of you suggested and enhances the colours a bit.

    I actually like the angle. It adds a bit of dynamism to the image.

    The focus is a bit soft. I agree with the cars being distracting as well

    The most off putting thing for me is the flare near the bottom right hand corner.

    WTF,

    I am going to do you a favor, and shoot you straight. Everyone is being far too nice here, which is not fair to you, and will not help you become a better photographer. Don't spend any more time trying to make this photo work, it lacks too much, in too many areas, there is simply nothing to work with. You did do something right however. You found potentially great lighting, and you saw something in the simplicity of a skateboard, and its shadow.
