Fabulous action shot. Great timing. Like the shadow. #1536939

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. #10773873
