Thanks everyone for the voting and nice comments.

Here is a little story coming with this image.

Arriving at the skatepark - pretty much a concrete tube with some features, about 8 skaters were there with 4-5 pretty active. One guy, part of the group, was taking pictures so I asked if it was fine to some of them nearby, one tells he prefer not to be shoot so I pay attention to that.
During 20 minutes, I was shooting getting use to the rhythm but at that point I noted some where on the other side of the tube and basically only one guy kept doing tricks. I guessed something was wrong. 5 minutes after, one of them came to me and ask if it was possible to stop as they were kind of intimidated by the camera. I was a bit surprise but understand the point, apologize to him for somewhat interfering and ask to give my apologizes to the others.

This picture was captured in the last 10 minutes.

A great, sharp capture. Out of interest, was the boarder just dropping in or had they just got to the top of the slope?

For what I remember, he went up the slope, land the tail and this shoot shows just after the landing when he was dropping in again.

This is one of my favorites for this challenge. Oddly fragmented composition that works exceptionally well. The hand is an essential and effective component!
