^^^^^You need the ground though. Unless it is a vert shot or transition shot, you need the ground cause you don't want to sell your skate photo as surreal or unreal. You need to sort of explain what is going on.
And some recent photos over the weekend of whatever:

Mr Fongstarr - I really appreciate the tips man. I've never looked into skate photography much, but those sound like some helpful hints. I don't think its really my thing, but I figured I might as well try it a couple of times! If I try again I will look at other skate photographers shots as examples and take into consideration what you said. Thanks!
Just bought this yesterday and have been messing with it ever since. I absolutely LOVE this camera. Its a P&S for Photographers. I spent the whole day today just walking around taking random pictures of things. It brought back my desire to take photographs.
Not the best video out there cause the frame rate makes videos really shaky but it's not like these will replace the cameras in the movie industry. If you are just trying to film some stuff for youtube/vimeo, then it should be cool but if you display this on a LCD TV, it will look like crap.
