Skateboarder - Brooklyn Bike Park

A skateboarder negotiates one of the tightly banked berms at the Brooklyn
Bike Park, casting a long shadow in the late afternoon sun of a summer day.

The popular park is located in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, close by
the East River, and is a magnet both for skateboarders and pump-bike riders.(*)

    A good action photo. Lots of distracting elements in the background warrents a tighter crop in my opinion. The skateboarder ihas been captured well.

      Thanks for your comment, Archie. You certainly read my mind regarding cropping - and I did go back and forth on that! The reason I decided not to was simply that the very gritty Williamsburg ambiance that surrounds the Bike Park was part of the experience for me.
