I like the fact there is some background in the pics, it adds to the shot, I probably crop too close half the time in my sports shots ;) The only thing I might say, is that the guy in the second pic has disappeared b/c of his dark hoody and the dark b/g, but I really like the colours and lighting in these, think the last one is probably my favourite :)

Tighter crop, maybe 25% or 10% if you want to keep it loose.

1. crop to a 8x10, too much negative space at the bottom.
2. no a fan of this comp
3. Not a good capture... looks like he just caught a barspin and is leaning way too far back.
4. best of the group but I would still tighten it up a bit.

nice work overall.

yea the black hoodie gave me issues but i wasn't gonna tell him to take it off, i tried my best to separate him from the black bg though.

1. i agree, i'll probably adjust it.
2. i rather enjoyed this one overall.
3. the timing is good, he's icepick stalling the log, kind of at a weird angle so i can see how you thought that.
4. actually my least favorite out of these. will probably tighten it up to get rid of the sky.

thanks for the comment!

I disagree. what most people who do not shoot action sports do not realize is your compostion needs to show your foreground and back ground. So many people on here are always saying tight crops on this kind of stuff. but then you wouldnt be able to tell where the person came from, where the persons going, or how big the object the person is doing the trick on.
