Must be tiring to hold on to that position. Would have helped emphasize your picture and title if you throw in a few props to show the "windy" impact. Then again, I must say its an innovative titling.

I think this might have done better if the actual person was not in the photo. Just my opinion of course but I like the idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2006 01:18:32 AM
wow.. this is acrobatic! very nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/06/2006 01:14:18 PM
Clever and well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/06/2006 12:53:09 PM
That must have taken some intricate timing. Intriguing. 8

You should have left out the body. The shadow itself would really rock with the head in a lower position.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2006 02:34:50 PM
Interesting shot, hope your comments explain how you did that. But... the subject of the shot is the person, not the shadow. I think it would have been more appropriate for the challenge, and even a more interesting shot, if you had cropped the person out.

if I could vote, this would be a 10! very original interpretation of the challenge, well executed and composed. My best compliments!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2006 08:26:13 AM
Good imagination and execution. Love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2006 08:22:29 AM
Ok, I looked at this one for a while trying to figure out how you did it. If this really is a self portrait it was perfect timing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2006 12:52:00 AM
nice trick
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2006 12:48:21 AM
That's hilarious. But more emphasis seems to be on the model than the actual shadow.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2006 08:27:11 PM
Very clever! ...And well done. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2006 06:13:49 AM
That looks difficult, either you have excellent upper body strength or I don't get the trick.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2006 12:10:12 AM
interesting...would have loved to have seen it with "just" the shadow
  Photographer found comment helpful.

V. creative. One of my faves of the challenge; I predict a top ten placing (but don't go by my predictions).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2006 03:35:00 PM
That's kind of cool.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2006 02:37:33 PM
Ha, cute! Creative too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2006 02:13:11 PM
I saw one like this before... still can't figure exactly how you did it. Good choice for this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2006 11:01:58 AM
The title is what makes this picture really work. Made me chuckle... now is this really your shadow? If so...I'd like to know how many frames on the self-timer it took to get this one...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2006 09:43:40 AM
nice composition
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2006 06:56:36 AM
this is quite an acrobatic stunt as well as an interesting photo. Thankfully you can't see your handa properly in the shadow, so it's not as easy to tell that the lower arm ia in compression rather than tension.

02/03/2006 03:04:18 AM
Too funny! How many times did you have to jump up like that?
