Maybe I'm wrong here – I'm no professional after all – but I'm damn proud of that picture. Even more so at the large size.
It's part of this 46-pic set from the Panasonic Open, a skateboarding/BMX/FMX event that stopped in Baltimore this past weekend. I wrote a cover story about it for PressBox, then used my media pass to check out the goings-on Saturday (more info here). All in all it was a hell of an event and a damn good time.
And a nice chance to flex some amateur photographer muscles. My Sony DSC-H1 was up to the challenge, performing surprisingly well on the action shots. It's got 12X optical zoom and image stabilization built-in, and if that sounds like a free ad then I suppose it kind of is.
