I'm impressed

it's caught the action very well, the exposure and flash worked together perfectly to retain detail in the sky and the skate border. The fish eye really does add a quirkiness to it - like the building in the background and its reflection in the puddle,.

at this size you can't see any motion blur, but I can't really see that being such an issue anyway, make the shot more dynamic really.

I've no idea about skate bording - assume that it's a tricky move Smile

That's made stronger by the ultra wide lens exagarting the height of the railings.

This is the best action shot I've seen in the CG by a long way - see how it does in the main gallery... though they like robins and lakes in there so it may well bomb

Nice Work, great amount of depth to this with the bush all the way back to the building in the distance. Something different for a skate shot.

Probably one of my top 5 skate shots of all time and that includes all the professional stuff.
The wide angle, the sky, choice of b+w, everything just looks great.

The angle/timing of the shot is also spot on and it's film!

Quality stuff all round.
