    I agree, the fisheye always works for these types of pics. Adds an extreme cherry to one extreme sundae. :wink: Nice shot! A skate park is being built in my town very soon. I can't wait to shoot there!

    I know the skater is the focus but there is alot going on around him that I feels is wasted space. I think I would have cropped the photo left of the skater and right next to the guy across the ramp, eliminating him from the picture. Next, I would crop down from the top eliminating some of the top of the pipe that you see at your feet. Just leaving the people in the corner and the skater sliding towards them with whatever top of the pipe is left after the crop. Also think sports photography we know hes skating so you could adjust your DOF or blur the background of the lower park. There is just alot compiting for attention.

    i was thinking of cropping out some of the shot however i like the fish eye effect and by cropping you lose the curves.

    yes i used a flash with off camera cord to my left held slightly further back than the camera. i had to guesstimate the power of it which is always a silly thing to do though it worked out well here!

    I don't like it. Hes way too centered, his right arm is pretty hot, the black and white with the subject as color effect is pretty cheesy, and its another point your fisheye in the general direction of the rider/skater/rollerblader shot.

    I do like fish eye effect but Im going to have to stick with blurring the backgroud in some kind of computer program. Your subject just looks like hes competing for attetion with everything elso going on. Its still a good pic though.

    Sk8ing is not a crime.
