It's a GREAT shot. But it makes my stomach turn, knowing all the young people whose skateboard injuries have left their backs and elbows horribly crippled. One of my step grandsons is in his early twenties and faces a lifetime of pain and suffering.

Not to ruin this photo for folks--it is WELL-deserving of a win in the contest. It's the most unique such shot I've seen, and has everything going for it technically and visually.

Now that's flying, and yes, it does all come together here, Bill, in every way.

Excellent action capture Bill! It's got everything going for it! Great comp, focus is terrific, nice & sharp, the background/door is interesting and would be great even on it's own, and the shadow is wonderful!

Outstanding timing and love the shadow. Too bad these kids get hurt so often.

Good job capturing this skateboarder in the air! Shadow is a bonus.
