    Darker than I had hoped... but not bad in my opinion!

    Insult it, compliment it, go crazy!

    I like this a lot...

    I'd like it better if it were shot slightly higher... giving us the whole left arm and a little less pavement at the bottom.

    But I also recognize this is a hard shot to get... nice work.

    Awesome shot!
    I'm going to have to agree with kn4ds, if the whole arm was there it would be a better shot.

    Nice one.

    My only issue: We lose part of the skateboard in the background.

    Yeah those are my two biggest problems with the picture. The pavement and the arm. I shot him for about 2 hours and only came up with about 10 decent pictures that would fit the standards for the assignment in my photo class.

    If you took this picture with a tripod, and then took it again (after he jumped) at a lighter exposure to get all of the details of the foreground (street, building, skateboard)... Then you could've blended it in photoshop and had all parts of the picture visible.

    Although, I actually like how everything is dark and makes a silhouette. It keeps the skater as the focus of interest. Now if only his whole arm was in the shot... it would be perfect.
