This "Sowle Sister" was more than happy to pose for the phalanx of photographers at the event that morning. I shot a burst of images as she rolled past me and got different parts of each image in focus, but this shot is actually a combination of two because I had cut off the very front edge of the skateboard in this frame and used part of another image in the series to fill it in.
Camera info: Nikon D200, 70 - 200mm 2.8 VR lens, f16 at 1/25th, ISO 100, sunny whitebalance
Post processing: copied and pasted the right front wheel and edge of skateboard from another image, cloned on the background to blend it in, selected blank area above her head and moved it down so the lines of the edges of the pool were included in the frame, cloned where those areas overlapped to blend in, sharpened.
