I shot this at the top of Palmer Park, overlooking Pikes Peak and the Front Range of the Rocky Mountians. I laid on the ground and shot up at a slight angle from about 40 feet away. He was very high in the air, but I did have to clone out a few tree tops from the bottom of the frame. The yellow/gold color comes from the sunset...

Awesome photo! Love the clouds in the background and the capture of the facial expression.

Aha! I remember this from the action thread. You've certainly captured the feeling of flight and did an excellent job at stopping the action while still implying plenty of it. The guy contrasts well with the stormy background to give an almost 3d feeling to the image. The white shirt seems to have a yellow cast to it and it's bordering on being blown out in places too. It certainly works as an action shot.

The dude knows how to kick.......

Great portrait, I like the composition with the room in front of him and the angle of shooting causing an aerial background.
