Challenge: Leap Day: In The Style Of: Natsumi Hayashi (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: 2012 Challenges
Camera: Nikon D90
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM for Nikon
Location: near Chateau Snaffles
Date: Mar 6, 2012
Aperture: f5.6
ISO: 500
Shutter: 1/800
Date Uploaded: Mar 6, 2012

Me at a client's barn, making the most of a fairly mild day to leave the barn doors open and get a shot of my levitation.

Camera on tripod, used remote and camera's timer set to 5 seconds.

pp: altered RAW, crop, brightness, contrast, vibrance, saturation, clone out remote's antenna and eliminate billow of pants in front, dodge face, burn snow, desat, resize, sharpen, save for web

Post challenge notes: This was a pretty tough shot to get. The section of barn I am sweeping is ramped and I had that barn in the bg to try and hide with my body. And oh yes also had to get the angle of the broom right, time the jump then during the jump, keep my feet flat so I wouldn't get any upturned or pointed toes...took a good 100 or so shots. I had to see the camera so I knew by the camera's light when to jump. Thank gawd! :-)

The one I prefer.... Because we really can't see the jump ! Very fun ! It looks like the broom's carrying you.
Well done!
