The combination of bright sun and haze must have made this a real challenge to photograph. The bright sun has created some hotspots on the "sail" and the mist haze has created some lack of clarity. Also, it would have been better, I think, if the main subject hadn't been quite so centred.

Did he jump off a cliff and are you shooting this from the cliff? Beautiful sight, I'd love to do that some day! I wish you could have zoomed in quite a bit more, and filled the frame with the person and and hang glider.... but if you didn't have access to a zoom thats understandable. I just think as a sports shot this would have been more applicable if you could see the exuberance on the persons face. Since you couldn't I still would have tried maybe to crop differently as it is the hangglider just sits in the middle of the frame... not very attractively done composition wise.

Great shot! the background has a surreal feel to it - almost dreamlike which I think complements the subject very well. Good job:)

Bit washed out is my olny bad point. Perhaps some level adjustment?
