Challenge: Leap Day: In The Style Of: Natsumi Hayashi (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-500D Rebel T1i

I was required to take an action shot photo for my photography class. I am student in high school.I set up this photo by having my brother jump in the air as high as he could and I took the picture as soon as he jumped. I turned the lights all the way on so the picture would show up better. The camera I used was a Canon EOS-500D Rebel T1i. When I took the picture I zoomed all the way out so I could capture the whole scene of him jumping. By doing this, you are able to see where he jumped from.

I want to love this... but it's too small for me to see.

A bit too bright for my liking. There's a harsh shadow to the left, which I am assuming is from the flash. The picture is also very small, which takes away from what we could see. But it's a good attempt.

As a photographer I truly appreciate the idea of what appears to be a class doing this challenge as a project. If this is the case then please do not be discouraged by the score... which I am sure is very low. You are allowed to enter an image up to 800 pixels wide and this is considerably smaller than that, so that is your first mistake and probably cut your score in half. Additionally, Natsumi generally takes photographs that seem to be more natural even though they are staged. This one seems staged and is more of an action shot then a levitation shot.

If photography is something that interests you then there is no better site to learn on than this one, so please kep submitting and learn as you go.

challenge is to levitate so it appears you are levitating not to jump, why is the pic so small and whats with the cluttered background?
