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