Boggling and what a capture! Should have finished even higher, I mean these guys are like two birds. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

Neat capture and lots of fun here! I would perhaps have made this mono due to the lack of useful colour in the shot. Your main focus is on the action so colour does little to support it and is quite washed out.

The shapes are quite strong here and would make an almost abstract shot stripped of all but the forms. Nice halfpipe - makes me want to get on my board!
