Outstanding. Your final angle really makes the shot. Definitely worthy of a "How'd They Do That?" if you're interested.

Definitely ribbon worthy. Congratulations on your 4th!

I can't believe this hasn't got a ribbon !

Love how the center fold breaks out of the borders and overlays the side panels

Congratulations, Owen ... on another top four finish (damnit!) and also on the clever idea, convincingly executed. Several people have remarked on the technical skills required to pull off this illusion, but I'd like to compliment you on also capturing the three most interesting instants of the athlete's jump.

Wow great to get a 7. Some people asked how it was done so here are the details.

The three shots were taken from a tripod of the 1 jump. 3 in 1 second by consecutive shooting. The 2nd and 3rd shots were laid over the top of the first shot and cut away where the black lines are. Then the borders were put on a layer over that and cleared where the underlying image had to show through.
Here are some outtakes as well.

Clever! Bumping up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2005 07:11:12 PM
wow, must have been a tough call on the validation here. you've done stuff with selections and overlapping that pushes the limits of what's within the rules. that is most excellent. fabulous work. if this isn't in the top 10, i will sacrifice three goats
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2005 07:02:40 PM
I like the reaching across the borders. It gives the photo a unique added touch.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2005 01:41:15 PM
Nice action sequence. Not sure that the borders add anything to the picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2005 08:33:54 AM
Very nice, great take on the challenge. The use and placement of the 3 photos is really nice. 10

Very Creative, i'm a big fan of the subject being infront of the section lines
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/19/2005 09:12:34 AM
Escellent job! Love the movement between panels, how'd you do that?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/19/2005 04:40:12 AM
Great tripple action capture, The structure of the pannels adds to the whole effect.- Well thought through
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/18/2005 06:07:08 PM
My top scoring photos did not include this one, but I wanted to make comment as to why. I am not quite sure what to make of the broken lines. Although I do think it is clever in appearance and thought, it also can mean that it was just not easy for you to separate the shots and keep them within the three lines of a triptych - most likely what gave you the idea to split them and over shadow them with the parts of the body in the other shots. I also think that the lines are too thin. This combined with them being white, it does little to break this up at all. At first glance it does not look like a triptych. However, I gave you a 7 for those thoughts rather than my top scoring 8's in this contest, and the 7 was for technical. Catching the actions in mid air from start to finish is just what I like to see, and it is very nicely in focus, even to the sand coming up at the end. Nicely done.

Excellent composition. Looks like a promising athlete
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/18/2005 01:04:18 AM
Not only is this just a really cool idea, but put together very well and technically excellant IMO. Exposure and focus are great. And you totally nailed the action, speed wise. Really cool, great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/17/2005 11:14:27 PM
wow - this is amazing. You got twins to do this .. how cooperative ;) ...!!! (i love comments where people don't get it don't you??? Anyway By far the best triptych. I am sure this wil be top 3 if not blue (at least it should be). 10

This is great and so creative! I love the body parts cross over from one image to the next.

great action shots and idea
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/17/2005 08:21:07 AM
I like the way the bodies hang over the frame. You do kind of lose the frame in the sand though. Good Luck.

Excellent. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/16/2005 10:10:18 PM
Not sure if this is a true triptych, but I love the overlap ot the elements into the other panels. I would love to know how you did this. 7 for now, and maybe a bump later. Bumped to 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/16/2005 09:07:37 PM
Decent photography - though I think things could be generally less bright - I wouldn't say this is over-exposed, but it would benefit from less brightness overall - increase the intensity of colours. Really unconvinced by the tricksy framing - the submission becomes more about the editing tricks than the effort of the athlete, I'm afraid.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/16/2005 12:45:36 PM
Very interesting take on the challenge. At first glance it doesn't look like a triptych, then it does, but then is it a multiple exposure? It can't be a long exposure, it's natural light. The more I look at it the more I wonder how the heck you did that. Honestly I can't tell if it meets the challenge or not. I'm giving it a 9 just for confusing the heck out of me
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/15/2005 07:05:55 PM
Good idea, I like the processing, no complaints there. The background is disturbing though. I would have either blurred it more or gone for a different angle. The car and the buildings just distract too much.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/15/2005 06:35:52 PM
Wow, I like this a lot! I can feel the sand coming up into my face. Great job!

very well blended together. one of the best in this challenge.

Nice captures and composition. One of my favorites.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/15/2005 01:22:40 PM
Excellent editing work. Does a great job telling a story. My only nitpick is the lighting - it's kinda harsh (that whole midday sun thing washes things out), BUT you've done a beautiful job presenting this, so it's hard to take much away from the score. 8

nice! lots of action/movement in this. love the way the boy overlaps the borders of the frames. great detail too, I can feel the impact with the sand...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/15/2005 03:23:10 AM
Excellent job, the only downside is the background (the barn, fence, car) is a big distraction. That is the only thing holding this back. 9.

i love this shot!!! especially the border inbetween the shots!!! verrry nice. 9 :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 06:50:49 PM
Really like the border treatment. I'll have to learn how to make parts of the photo extend past the borders. Hope you left comments on how you did it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 05:00:05 PM
I knew there would be images that were "outside the boxes," but choosing a motion series and doing it so well, you deserve a 10. (Sorry, I'm a registered user)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 01:20:50 PM
I love that the subject breaks through the lines of the triptych. It really pulls the action of the young althlete into the third dimension, making the image pop.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 07:59:44 AM
I hope you explained how you did ths. This looks so cool. It's one of my favorites, and I keep staring at it wondering how you must have done that. I'm going to check back when this is over and see if you explained it. I hope so because I'd love to try something like this. This one really tells a story. And in such an interesting cool way. Good luck. I just love this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 04:51:52 AM
fantastic idea here. Nicely executed too. Only small critisism is that he is slightly blurred in the shots. IMHO Good luck(8)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 03:21:21 AM
This is quite skilfully done. I look forward to seeing how it was accomplished. My qibble with it is the car under the kid's ass in the middle panel, but it's just that; a quibble. I'd expect to see a ribbon hung oin this one next sunday.

Oh yeah!! Only the fourth one I've seen and predicting top ten at least. Way to go "outside the box!" :)
