    Nice shots. Nice feel for action, and I like where you put your logo on some of them: creative.

    Most of the shots are overexposed and blury. Increase your shutter speed and use a tripod next time. Also having other people in the picture taking pictures is distracting the viewer from the main subject. Other then that they look great.

    I also think if your friends did better tricks it would make the shots stand out more. A little 50-50 on a 1' tall bench doesn't do it much for me. But then again, I understand it takes time to learn.

    Pick a spot for you watermark and leave it there, other wise it gets distracting from each shot. Also the editing on #2 is way to much it looks to fake.

    he liked it like that, its way over-sharpened. On my pics that i post on here, my watermark is in the corner. I jus wanted everyone on myspace to kno i took it

    Try moving farther away from the people skating and getting more of a composed shot instead of just centering the kids and having no background and surrounding areas. Just try to get the skateboarder out of the center.
