Before my photo session this past weekend I had a little time to burn so I stopped by our local skate park and the locals were doing their thing. I thought this picture turned out cool but wondering what you all think. He is actually jumping the trash can.

Good exposure. Great stoppage of movement!
I would probably clone out the guy in the background that shows up between his legs!

nice shot try shooting more wide open with av priority it will help separate your subject form the back ground

I appreciate the advice. I agree with both parts. The guy between his legs definitely needs to go. If I go back I'll try more wide open shots.

Here was the shot info:
Camera: Canon EOS 40D
Lens: EF-S17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM
Shot at 45 mm
Exposure: Manual exposure, 1/640 sec, f/6.3, ISO 100

I personally would have gotten a little lower to break the fact that it looks like he is skating on the ledge at board level in the background. The crest of the hill and his shoulder kind of bothers me as well. Another thing in skate photos is that people generally like the see where the skater came from a little more. Great timing though!

Try to pay a little more attention to what's going on in the background next time. You don't want to distract from the action. And you have good action here, but it's being overwhelmed by everything else going on in the frame.

Thanks for the feedback. It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon and all the kids were out skateboarding. I agree though if he was the only one in the pic it would have been a lot less distracting.
