A+ in my book. They look good. I like the second one. Its different than the usual skateboarding pictures

Hi jka,

great shots - in particular the second one, I think. It conveys a rather interesting mood and it just goes to show that crystal sharpness is not a prerequisite for a great picture.

Nicely done!

Cheers

ps: a handsome young lad you have there :-)

for #1 - with the large DOF, you might try to pay better attention to the specifics of your background

for #2 - those big bushes kind of mess with the composition...i'd say it's all or none, and i like it how it is, but the pic might also work if you cropped a vertical rectangle around the skater and omitted the road he's walking on

again, the compositional elements are iffy, but the rest is spot on

good work, i say!

Thanks everybody.......

I just took a couple "quickies" as he was leaving our house.

I played around with the second one, crop, sepia and softened the edges, I like the mood of the shot. In colour and "in focus" it had a harsh look to it.

Cheers........
