Default Skate;Ollie 9

Ok, I think I finally did it. Edited in Gimp 2.6, resized and I think it still has the EXIF data. Please tell me.

Default Exif fine

Yes it's fine. But in pic #2, there is some what looks like artificially out-of-focus objects in the lower right. I don't know.

Hahaha yeah it's obvious I used the blur tool but this picture had like maximum DOF which is distracting...

Default Here we go...

I used the blur tool around everything but the skater and the rail. Looks cool to me.

This last one looks way better than #2. Problem with #1 is that you can't see any emotion, the skater is just there, in the shadows.

Kudos for trying something different - you have to try different things to find your way.
The challenge with your last shot is twofold:
1) the blur is overdone - tone it back
2) if you do have a blurred background, it shouldn't dominate the frame like it does in your last shot. So, you need to think a bit before the shot on whether or not you want the background as part of the story. If so, then don't overdo it with the blur. If you really want to diminish the background then shoot tighter and thus capture more detail in the subject you do want to be the story.

I agree with the other poster - the last is better than the first but you still have to decide ahead of time about whether the background is part of the image or not. The reason is anytime you shoot wide you sacrifice detail. Keep at it.

dot be afrad to use your flash during the day, and learn to use the flash compensation on the camera to help the flash over power the suns shadows, but awesome awesome progress, learning to get low and emotion, keep on shooting, the more you do the better you get, next time can you post up unedited pictures so we can see what you are actually capturing?
