An amazing capture and such a wise decision to present it in classic b/w to remove all distractions from this flight. Congratulations on your 4th placing.

This free-running stuff is amazing. Or crazy depending on which way you look at it. Great capture. I don't really understand why we have stop motion and action shot in consecutive weeks, but this would have done brilliantly in either.

I'm really digging this shot, would prefer it in color with that great backdrop of sky but it's looking great from here 9

08/08/2006 06:13:28 AM
would have been sooo good if you had taken it a bit with a wider lens, and had the ground in it, and the guy closer to the top of the frame!! its still pretty good! nice work

Wow!
Amazing shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/04/2006 07:57:49 PM
Very nice shot. Black and white colors gave this photo extra look. Awesome catch, and I still pondering how did you take this one... I mean the person is so high, even trampoline wouldn't be able to do that... Fish eye lens, maybe. Anyway, keep up the good work :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/04/2006 02:22:17 PM
Similar to what I entered into this competition. This has the wow factor and will make the top 10. Awesome image!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/04/2006 01:18:19 PM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/04/2006 10:49:35 AM
You get a seeeeeeriiiious WOW factor for this one... holy shit I must say.

10 from me.

Another picture where I have to say "What the hell?" Where is this poor guy going to land? Fantastic shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/04/2006 12:50:31 AM
I would like to know if this person really did a back flip off this building?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/04/2006 12:25:21 AM
Interested to rea about this later.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2006 08:05:21 PM
OK - I see a winner!!
If there could be only one extra thing to make this shot perfect it would have been a darker sky to add more punch - But still has massive "WOW" factor!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2006 06:13:37 PM
Great capture, one little bugbear is maybe the tones are a bit muted? Still, a 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2006 09:48:42 AM
Great image. I am looking forward to reading more about how you did it. I would have loved to see more contrast but this is a grat image regardless.

This shot stopped me in my tracks.
I don't know if I should close my eyes or wait to see the outtakes.
Wow!

10 :) excellent.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/02/2006 07:44:56 PM
this is parkay, right? or is that the butter...oh yes, parkour. very cool shot too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/02/2006 04:33:28 PM
Nice perspective (shooting position) which accentuates the height. Sharp as, and nice B&W tones. Compo great with the "floater" filling the 'void' of the sky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/02/2006 03:25:03 PM
O man! Fine composition and precise timing. Wonderful shot. Don't you wish you could submit a much larger version? :)
Wonder if this is from imagineer (came across some fine shots today)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/02/2006 11:37:41 AM
Amazing shot; I like it in B&W.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/02/2006 09:18:37 AM
no way! that looks awesome...great shot and suitable for the challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/02/2006 01:53:04 AM
Wow! I hope you tell us how you (or rather, the jumper) did this.

Wonderful composition - the long vertical underneath really emphasizes the height. And B&W works fine here, with the clothes contrasting well with the sky.
