    I really like these shots...the last shot is my favorite I think because it communicates crystal clear how skaters interact with the urban environment. It's just my opinion of course, but I think that image is the most artistic of the three. Really amazing :) I also like that you can't really see his face in this picture, so it becomes less about that specific skater and more abstract/generalized. Maybe I'm reading into it way too much :)

    Thanks for sharing!

    All great pics. The first is my fav, though. I like the face showing - it gives a peek into the concentration of the skater. Mostly it's the composition of the first that really attracts me - it's phenomenal.

    I'm not sure if its just me, but the first one looks like it has a quantity of fisheye distortion. I'm not sure if you were shooting with a super wide lens (the .exif says you were shooting at 11mm focal length) or if you were shooting with a fisheye, but generally, at least in my personal opinion, you need to be very careful with peoples faces when you are shooting with a fisheye/super wide lens. That being said, with the exception for the distortion in the face/head area, this photo is very good. I agree with WTF? though.. It could use just a touch more fill flash. Maybe another flash behind and above camera, set to... say... 1/8 power just to fill in the shadows on his arm and face

    The last one is great. Love the lighting! It's got a little motion blur though...

    Leave the wide angle at home next time.

    Take a look in a skate magazine. All of the pictures are either shot fish, or over 50mm (fx equiv). Wide angle is cool for architecture, but just looks dumb for action
