Skateboard bench jump

By steve_eb    
Skateboarder under walkway successfully undertaking after numerous attempts a bench jump and slide.
They have great desire to keep going until they nail it, bit like us really although the pain is not physical, for us its emotional !!!

Comments welcome, thanks.

Great shot, like the expression of concentration on his face.

Have always wanted to try stuff like this, will need to get out!

Thanks Ali,
I spent about 2 hours watching the skateboarders and a little wee lad on a scooter will post it soon, if you have anywhere to shoot these I thoroughly recommend it, pure enjoyment and they appreciate your art taking images of their art, Steve

Yeah this is good man. The depth of field adds colour without distracting from the subject. I like his expression too.

Is that my beloved Highbury in your display picture? I miss that old place!
