Challenge: Leap Day: In The Style Of: Natsumi Hayashi (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Canon EOS-550D Rebel T2i
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II
Location: Railroad underpass
Date: Mar 3, 2012
Aperture: 2
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/500
Date Uploaded: Mar 5, 2012

I had fun shooting for this challenge with my daughter. This is a graffitied underpass below a set of railroad tracks. We had taken several shots when a pedestrian approached. I told my daughter to keep jumping while she passed. The pedestrian saw the camera and hesitated -- she did not want to interrupt. I smiled and waved her by casually, and she practically sprinted to get by quickly. I barely caught her in frame. In looking through all the shots I thought the movement of the pedestrian made my daughter seem more like she was hovering then the shots of my daughter alone.

Overall, I like the graffiti background, the green boots, and how the colors and movement in the scarf echos some of the background. I like the shot -- I hope voters think it captures some of the fun of Hayashi's work.

I need to thank my daughter. It's not easy to jump so many times in big rubber boots, and some might feel self conscious jumping around the sidewalk of a busy street.

I gave this an 8. Thought it had a good chance to ribbon. Very well done.

I hope you rewarded her, you're right about those boots, but they are rather cool. I gave you a 7 well done.

Nice background for this IMO. I like the inclusion of the passer-by. Wish there was just a bit more space between them, but it works for me anyway. A favorite.

The super sharpness of the jumper makes this work a treat.

Now THIS is in her style. It is so much more than a person with feet off of the ground. My fav so far. Nice job. Love those chartreuse rain boots!!!

Great shot. Love the colors! Also like how my eyes go straight to the boots, where they should go. Lovely processing and capture!

Fabulous. Wonderful colors. As though she's floating away to the little tropical island in the orange sea

Looks like Natsumi has crashed this challenge :). Perfect match, probably the only one. Could be a bit lighter on the blacks but it's a 10 anyway.
