Looks pretty good. and of course, more action, stay low, and shoot your heart out.

The biggest thing that bothers me is the weird crops/sizes of the pictures. but that might just be a me thing.

looks like some good fun was had. but i would recommend putting some space between your photos when you post them. because these two look funny together.
