I took off some time while skiing to photograph the guys coming off the jump, just waiting for them to crash. This was my best capture.

I was not happy with the edit, in fact I really expected high 4's, so this is a surprise. I'll probably post the original and let the good editors have at it.

Thanks for the acknowledgment of the capture. It was alot of fun.

Nice photo Becky! Congrats on your top 10. I like the B/W and airborne snow, but would have preferred a less-central composition.

Nice shot with great stop motion that works well for the challenge.
however, IMO the b&w does not work well here. The photo had no specific texture or light/shadow games or even something emotionate to pay attentio to, that will justify the b&w.
I would prefer this photo in very vibrant colors! 7

Good moment, but a bit centered and too flat grayscale for my taste.
