    I've recently been hanging around in a skatepark located drectly beneath the A40 in London taking photos for a university project.

    I have already posted this in themes but I thought I'd put it here too for a little more exposure as it's my first attempt at overlaying images like this in photoshop.

    Being directly underneath the motorway meant that light was at a premium but I tried to recover what detail I could in PS as well with a little lightness and saturation adjustment and some levels tinkering.

    Let me know what you think folks :)

    nice composite! :)
    If it were me, i might think about cropping roughly the top and bottom thirds off... and maybe tweaking the levels a bit more to bring the skater away from the background a little more..

    but very nice! <<Thumbs up>> :)

    That park looks like it'd be fun to skate. It's a solid pic, although speaking from a skate photographer's POV, I'd have gotten closer and given more empasis to the trick itself, rather than the run up. For example:

    Fair play to you though, sequences are hard to get right, and you've done an admirable job here, as skateparks are always difficult to shoot in.

    hey, Ben_:)
    i like the first version much more - the only thing i would change is the background - its too agresive(?) for me, especially the red signs in there....great work -:)
