Took this with a load of hangovers. Didn't care much about the sun being against me but when I came home, there was almost no detail in the skater - he was mostly a silhouette. I then spend quite some time fiddling with the photo in Lightroom and Photoshop order to bring the face expression out without getting a too unrealistic look.

Did I succeed to your liking?

wow a female skater! we don't get much of that around here... try getting her to do a sexy trick; meaning it looks good on photos... be it an ollie, a flip or a grab... ollies can look great too, see...

Hahaha, it's actually a guy with long hair and he was pretty good at it. He jumped from a small ledge down on the tarmac, that's why he has so much air underneath. The trick was a basic kickflip.

Thanks for the comment, though.
