Nothing can stop the US Air Force......orginal. I don't know if the b/w would have been my choice, but I think it is a good shot and a nice job just the same. - 6 -

I like the captured pose and the composition in the shot, the parachutist and parachute are framed well. But I suspect that the focus was on the parachute (judging by it's writiing) and not the subject.

Great photo, good sharpness and DOF. I am just stuggling on how to rate these interpretations of the "branch" idea.

Cool shot, but not convinced of the "branch" theme

I think just stretching the theme a little too far. spoils what is really a great action shot

This image is way to busy, and it took awhile to find the connection to branch.

good stop action. Not sure black and white suits the image but I don't see the original. Focus good, DOF good, comp okay - would like to see more of the environment but this works.

It's an interesting photo, but I think just barely qualifies as a valid photo for the competition, sorry.

Nice capture of a landing. Nice to see something other than tree branches. I like it as a black and white also.

This is really a great shot, but the subject looks like a wax dummy.Totally wierd. 6

brilliant picture. The action of the parachute that you've frozen is really unique.
