This is a picture I took at the Marysville WA skatepark a few years ago. Just wondering what people think of it.

it's full of energy, it has beautifull colors and nice mood, but it's a little dark and out of focus... also, better cropping would have a better impact, by eliminating some distracting elements

But i feel the other way round... this is place for photography where people come down with their original pics unedited for reviews and discussion !! thats how we can give the unbiased opinion regarding the pictures. For a genuine lover of Photography... Cropping ... editing... is a negative remarks !! If at all you need to crop do it before capturing in your camera !! Thats why discussing on photography is so beautiful !!

True I agree with both of you. The lens I had at the time was not the best only a F3.5 at 28mm and 5.8 at 90mm also I had no flash unit. I do however like the semi silhouette effect of the sunset in the background.

I used a Canon EOS Elan7 not sure what the aperture was I assume it was wide open at 3.5 I didn't record that info when I took the shot.

The subject of the picture is perfect. Perfect timing. I also like the sunset in the background where it silhouettes the skateboarder. The image is a little fuzzy. It would have been nice if you could have focused more on the skateboarder. Nothing a little photoshop can't fix!

I like the way you caught the skater in mid air. I also like the time of day. It's as thought you are trying to get a nice color in the back ground. I'm not a pro but I know what I like.

Its ok for a ameture photographer, you certainly caught it at the right moment, just a little dark for me.
