I like the trick shot, but unless he's sporting a white robe and halo, he doesn't really have a choice, does he?

Nice technique, but no real decision is presented here in my opinion.

holy crap!! this is such a great idea and shot. I like the framing and composition.

How on earth did you do this? Did you get someone to jump in and capture them jumping in a standing position just as they were hitting the water? HOW?! Very impressive, although I'm not sure if it fits the challenge. Sink or stand isn't really a decision, standing isn't usually a viable alternative but then again that's what makes this shot so fantastic... I can't bear to vote this down for DNMC... 8

wow this picture is awsome! haha im gonna try that. Exactly the right moment! though the right foot is kinda makeing the water splash already.

I don't feel that the image conveys instantly recognizable decision. I'd say because of the shot (he's already in the process of sinking, you just caught him before he was in to far (splashes around his feet...)), the title hurt it. Nice pic though, I always like capturing motion.

really really really perfect capture

A great illusion and potentially an allusion (walking on water is a challenge of faith and for many a decision point). That said, alone this image does not tell me a story of a decision. It is to me more a triumph of light and shadow to illustrate an illusion or perhaps only an image of a young man standing on a rock just below the surface. Well shot, it has little interest factor after identifying the pedistal he stands on. I can only offer a 4 compared to other challenge entries.

that's cool. would have been a good entry for the stop motion challenge as well.

I am really interested in how many shots you had to take to get it just at this point.... i think it's great
06/01/2005 12:22:13 PM

06/01/2005 05:34:59 AM
You can decide that? ;-) This is a really cool shot with an excellent setup and good timing. Very nicely done.

Well done!! I'm dying to know how did you managed it....
