Steve Caballero Air by eddiethink Steve Caballero Air by eddiethink
How many times do you get the chance to photograph one of the biggest legends in skateboarding. I am still so stoked, feels like I am tripping :)

Suggester says, "I think it's a brilliant use of the fisheye lens and I really like the timing and how the stance works so well with that. It feels like a quick snapshot with barely any effort taken for the execution and yet the composition is fantastic and the overall piece is just great I think."

Legend, very nice shot too, classic Steve in action, with the lean back side air .. was it a judo air that he pulled, cause his front foot looks to have just made it back onto the board :D

I envy your precision! :XD: Every time I try to take a picture of my boyfriend performing a trick on his skateboard, I miss it by a second or so. Brilliant timing and the angle this was taken is incredible!

Steve Cab, what a guy, what a legend! What a photo! I think the only thing that could have made it any more epic was if he was doing a Cab Flip! Amazing shot, so crystal clear and full of energy, thank you for you sharing and well done on your DD!

I was so happy to an extreme spots shot get one instead of just another model with her clothes off!
