It ought to be obvious why we've picked this Tim Smith shot out of the entries so far.
Amazing lighting, crazy spot (and if you've been there like we have, you'll also know that you get the boot after about 10 seconds so managing to shoot anything is a coup in itself), beautiful composition and a classic trick from one of Huddersfield's younger heads.
Another no-brainer - that spot alone makes this Ash Wilson shot of Joe McComb stand out. Hardflip, God knows where with the added bonus of crazy-looking geometry strewn across the foreground.

We've seen this traditional freestyle skater popping up on a lot of Manchester Urbis Instagram clips recently so it's rad to see a photo submission featuring an often-overlooked type of skating going on at one of the UK's most famous street skating spots. The focus on his face screams at you in this one.

There's a lot going on here in this submission from Sofia, Bulgaria. Heavy slam potential with the filmer risking his lens in the foreground gives this one a moody sense of the inevitable. Classic shot-from-beneath angle of a scary trick.

This crooks at Birmigham's Fastlands was shot by young skater and photographer Charlie Elmer at the weekend during the No Comply Network Jam. Hot off the press toe-control by Henry Fox at a classic UK location.
