Another image that I loved to take and edit. Focusing with my M9 set up is a challenge with fast moving action. Especially at a almost wide open aperture. This skater was doing laps in the pool feature of the skate park, so it gave me a few good opportunities.

It's a fun shot, but I'm not sure it meets the definition of focal point. My eyes keep jumping between the person and the shadow. But perhaps that's just because I love shadows in pictures. :) (not voting yet, just looking right now.)

I'm interested in what you saw as the FP in this. As I studied it I found the FP changed. Maybe it's just me. Good luck. Cool photo.
