Yep, I took this shot myself, of me. It is on my roof, camera is right off the surface below me. I am at the high point. The sun should have moved over so I could have had better lighting, but it didn't. Hope you guys hate it.

This is good: the clouds, the hair, not to mention the friendly unprofessional uncertainty of the expression which I love.

Ohmy. You did really really good! This is fantastic. Great angle to catch him so high in the air. And such agreat sharpness and focus.

ok, there's a guy in the air, but it really doesn't convey any sense of action.

Great backdrop but I think (And correct me if I am wrong) but there has been a bit too much "Dodge Tool" to the persons face which has made it flat The clouds are amazing

Trampoline? Wonderful clouds in the background for this. Not sure if it's my monitor here at work or not, but it looks a little flat, like you could use a small boost of contrast. As for the subject, I think this would have scored higher if he wasn't looking at the camera and had an expression more of fun than concentration. Anyway...good luck in the challenge.
