    Great shots, remind me of the tony hawk pro skater playstation days! Besides the fill-in flash you might try adjusting the brightness level or playing around with color settings, on some of the shots the sky or the concrete is too bright.

    hey, I'm new here, so thought I'd give some advice for my first post.

    nice try with the skating stuff.

    what you need to be thinking about is the composition of each shot. The second shot of the double set, you're using your 10.5 but your standing too far away. If you're gonna use your fisheye, be right up under him.

    I shot this tonight. try getting down on your back, you gotta put yourself in the way to get the best shots

    [​IMG]

    The shot of the boardslide, you've chosen a pretty unorthodox angle. It's by no means the wrong angle. Again, using the 10.5, you've really gotta get in there, don't be afraid to get right down on the ground. It's not the safest place to be, but its the most effective way of showing the trick/skater well, and giving a real indication of the height of the rail/ledge.

    [​IMG]

    as for the last one, you needed to have put the 10.5 back in your bag, and pulled out the 50mm. Its a great quick lens, just move in a bit close, and shoot a nice straight shot. Something like this.

    [​IMG]

    hope thats been a bit of help, just remember to get close with the fisheye, but don't be afraid to shoot without it. I know its cool, but its not the only way to shoot a skate shot.

    Cheers!

    Mark

    Just a phase, I like the 2nd photo. Just wished you would have cropped a little closer to the skater.

    You have the fisheye, USE IT. The point of it is so you can get super close while still getting the rider and the obstacle in the shot.

    Heres some (shot with a 10-20mm)
