Very nicely done. A few minor flaws but overall you managed to capture a very impressive stunt. The rider could have been in focus and would have added to the shot. I know you couldn't move the building in the background but, it is distracting. Maybe less DOF would have blurred it out. The composition is fine. Maybe if you had gotten closer and lower to the ground you could have captured him in nothing but sky. I shoot at a local skate park and I actually lie on the ground and shoot up. Although only with the riders I am familiar with. Exposure seems fine also. Overall I really like the shot except the fore mentioned flaws. Great job. Keep up the good work.

shame about the background, could have been so much better with a clean backdrop

Very nice! Might tighten in a bit on around the subject. Overall, very good!

Wow, impressively symmetrical composition with the bike being level in this shot really adds something.

Nice capture, although not sure about the background. It owuld be nice to see a much tighter shot of the biker.

composition is ok and exposure is fine. rider is a little out of focus and could have been a little more detail in him to get a better feel of what he was about

I really wanted to give more points, but, the pink ramp bottom right is very distracting and I think detracts from the rest of the composition which has great line and is really neat. The kid is in an amazing position.

Nice action, color, dof and comp. Lighting a bit distracting.
