This is my sister jumping off of the balcony, into the pool at an early 4th of July fiesta. I like the angle and how she appears to be standing on the water.

Great timing. Would have been even better if the angle was slighly lower to see more of the pool instead of background. But a cool shot nonetheless :)

Ah, this makes me smile and chuckle! What's happening here? You in a window and she's on a diving board? Or is she actually JUMPING from a roof or something? Feel free to PM me if you wish, I'm done voting :-)

great angle and energy! i think i would have liked a little more zoom so as to cut off the houses at the top.

Great timing! I really dig the totem pole/tiki guy amidst the trees, too.

This photo would have been better if you oculd have gotten a different angle. Maybe one showing her face and/or where she is jumping from. There is too much wasted space in the top of the photo, that could have been used to capture more of the pool. Placing her near the top right corner would have given the photo more effect by showing more of the pool and giving more of a sense of depth.

i did not see the girl until i scrolled down, this is way cool a shot, but, framing could have been chosen more wisely, to much at the top takes the eye away! i would have gone down more, to heck with rules, i go by how the eye is stolen from a subject.
;)
thanx and no offense intended this otherwise is a very cool creative shot!
