This is Sarah shooting old school (film) for a class assignment (Sophomore in High School). I had other shots where the skater looked better but having her at the bottom produced a stronger From Above perspective. Hoping this scores above a 6.

I wish you had cropped her out! All the action of the shot's with him and the board. I understand your leaving her in (explained in the title). But still think it might have gotten a higher score from me without her.
