HA! I knew this was yours.
What a score. 4 entries in 2014, 3 of them blue and the fourth one ended up 14th in the C2K.
Congratulations.

Your lighting is superb and the image is crisp without being the least bit overdone. When I grow up I want to be able to do this too (the photography, not the flip). Since I'm in my 60's I'm not sure I'll ever get there. But it's clear you have it all figured out. Wonderful image.

Ooooh, this looks like one of our dancer photographer's gorgeous work. Top of the heap, or close to it, I would think

Fun capture!

Good one. Best in show.

Is it really a backflip or a normal jump with the camera upside down (or rotated in post, same difference)? It totally meets the challenge either way, i'm just asking out of curiosity. My money is on rotation in post. The hat is too firm on his head and the shoelaces don't seem to be affected by gravity :-)
