    Vans is incredibly difficult to shoot at, I would challenge any of you to try and shoot there.

    Prefacing your thread with a ridiculous comment like this is even worse than with a list of apologies about your gear. Or the priest at the wedding. Or that the sun was in your eyes and there was a hole in your mitt. Explain to me why that park is so difficult to shoot at vs. another park or a concert or sporting event. Or whatever else.

    That said, I like these... try cropping tighter (or shooting tighter). The composition is decent as is but this isn't static portraiture or still-life. This is a theoretically extreme sport so the shots should have energy. Wide lens + tight composition = energy. Try shooting them a half stop or so hotter too and see where it goes - this will help get some more color in the shot too (watch your white balance here too, they're off a bit and in different ways). For an action sport they seem very static and dark. Or push them in RAW :dunno: Also try dropping the shutter speed a little...these are very cool when the shot is frozen but peripherals like swinging arms or a flipping board or something has a bit of blur on it. That's tricky to pull of well but give it a go.

    edit: and shake up your angles too. Lie down on your back and come up at #1 for example as he ride by you. Do some from down in the bowl and come up to exaggerate their air or get on a ladder and shoot down on a grind to get the whole bowl or whatever in the frame. Your angle(s)' fine but not for every shot. Shooting from the really low or really high, or with a dutch (tilt) etc. gives the shots a lot more drama.

    I didn't say it was an excuse douchebag, I said its a stupid thing to preface a thread with if you're looking for a valid critique. I personally figured you were throwing yourself a compliment, which is an equally poor idea. Every location has its pros and cons and things that make it a challenge. At least you can throw light around that place - imagine if you couldn't use a flash :hsugh:

    (i edited too, read the rest)

    evan can't take criticism. he's pretty much a troll and we all should ignore his threads.

    Evan is a gigantic douchebag, The only reason I even came in this thread was to watch it turn into a trainwreck like the last one.
