    Outstanding! Simply love it. Composition is right on the money, expsoure looks great, and the detail is awesome.

    Can't find anything about it I don't like!

    Very nice shot Taralyn! I love everything about it, I'd love to see it in b&w.

    Thank you everyone! I really appreciate all the positive comments :)

    Here is the photo in blk/white..... I think I like the color version better though... the blk/white seems to loose some of its interest to me

    Absolutely amazing photo. The stop action is great. I'm not sure if I like the black and white or the color one better. The shadow is very intriguing, the only nit I have though it looks a little bit like he's floating. The "floatingness" I think is more pronounced in the black and white than it is the color.
    All in all, great shot.

    Nice shot in both b&w & color... but I prefer the color in this one! I also love the comp and the shadow! Great job!

    Excellent composition, colour and everything!!! I particularly like the skaters shadow. Critically; I do not get a sense of motion.

    Wow! Excellent capture. You nailed this one. Looks gret in b/w and colour.
