Because of similar comments about the float in mid air i'm going to explain the photograph further.

This is a self portrait done with a timer in a dark room and strobe lights.

I hit the button ran up against the wall, and jumped into the air. soon after the strobes fired and stopped the motion. The floating feel is because I literally was floating in mid air. That is the effect I was going for, and I think I achieved it very well. The idea was to get the "scared so bad I jumped over the moon" or whatever look. the backround and subject (me) are independently edited via layers. A modest amount of cloning and healing tool were used to remove the edge of the wall from the tips of my fingers and down.

Thanks for all the comments guys and gals :-)

Greetings from the Critique Club

First off, I want to say this is a really funny picture. I love the expression on the guy's face and it makes you think about what is really going on in the scene. However, I just can't get passed the fact that he seems to be floating in mid-air. There is no context, if you know what I mean. I think perhaps it would be better if the person was in a real life environment.
I think the exposure is pretty balanced and detail was kept where needed. I like the black and white conversion and the warm tones. This is just my opinion and you did very well, so congratulations.
If you have any questions or comments about this critique, please feel free to PM me.

Probably the funniest photo I've seen in a VERY long while. Really well done, right down to the style of the throw pilliow, which is clearly what you'd expect to find downstairs at mom's house.

Good job! I like the movement in this picture.

Great. What an expression.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2005 07:31:32 PM
I like the pose, the composition, the tone, how the person seems to float in the air and the humor. The only thing I dislike is the flatness of the tone, wich might be enhanced by the border (I'm not sure). 9

funny, sexy, cool. Very dynamic, original, well composed. Good title, too and the lighting/setup looks like you put quite some thought and work into it. Maybe a tad oversharpened. The edges of his feet and his fingers look like they were cut out.

Well executed. The lack of shadows at the feet detracts from the image though. Makes it look too touched up. 7

Very humourous. Is this a self portrait? If it is I want to say I admire you for doing it. I think this is the best of the funny photos. Good luck in the challenge. How did he jump that high while being naked?

HAHA! Fantastic. I just adored this shot. I only wish the contrast was a little better. However, the hues/shade(whatever it's called) of this photograph work well. Plain B&W would be too harsh, and this is a light-hearted, light capture. Wonderful! (Thanks for the laugh, I needed one around now)

This, like a few other shots in this challenge, feel very forced. I really like the humor, but this looks and feels over processed.
