Skateboarding with the Olympus PEN

Re: Skateboarding with the Olympus PEN

No sooner posted my welcome Adam and I saw your post come in.
These are fantastic!
What a great subject, and hard to pick a favourite from the set, but I love the last shot!
Keep them coming.

I thought pens wern't supposed to do action
Well caught, love to see more. Framing in that last one is spot on.

Re: Skateboarding with the Olympus PEN

Welcome, and what an entry. Fantastic shots each of them with fantastic timing.
Great composition on each, and particularly the last one.

Well Done.

Re: Skateboarding with the Olympus PEN

Nicely caught, Adam, thanks for sharing them. I like the way you have given us plenty of context as well as the core action. I would probably have been tempted to crop them tight on the boarders, which would have lost a lot of impact.

One small suggestion, could you put a couple of line feeds in between each photo please? It comes out here as a wide film strip and needs scrolling to the right. The "Preview post" button is very useful to check the layout before committing to it.

Ciao ... John

Re: Skateboarding with the Olympus PEN

Good subject and well framed.

Its shot 1 that wins for me, though timing on 4 is impeccible
