-I had a perfect sunset at Waimea Bay to back light this photo. It was rare to just get one or two kids jumping. What you don't see in this photo is a long line waiting their turn. This picture reminded me of bridge jumping when I was younger. I have plans on returning to this spot with an underwater housing, canít wait to see what I get then.

-Thank you all for your comments and votes.

-If we could have submitted an edited version this would have been my choice.

Congratulations on your high finish! Pretty cool capture!! I was actually there in May of 2006 and took a few shots of the kids (perhaps the same ones you have in your photograph!)
