How it was done: The ole' flip it upside down trick.

My friend James jumped off about a 30-35ft cliff, and this is a shot of him on the way down. I jumped a few minutes later, pretty exhilarating.

Yellow or lighter shorts would have given this image that extra push to the very top. Very nice work. It is the most captivating image in this challenge and worthy of a much higher score. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

seems like more then basic editing to me

Did he REALLY jump that high? Wow! Neat shot. Something about the lighting on the man seems odd though...Or is it just me?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

not sure how you did this - but it's pretty cool. The lighting on the front of the body seems a bit bright, but otherwise well done

Obvious capture of a life force dropping out of a time worm. Neat shot, good luck.

Looking forward to seeing how this was done (as I am sure many others are). I wil ltake a wild guess and say that it might be a reflection in water, but I dont really have a clue. Cool shot.

I don't know where he's jumping from or to, but the illusion of him jumping out into space is great.

How did you do that.....nice..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/04/2006 09:40:11 AM
I have no idea what's going on here and I love it!
Composition, colors and subject are great. Very Nice!

What the hell!!! Where did this guy come from? You get points for the WOW factor. The sky is too dark at the top and the ground at the bottom is out of focus. And what are all the white spots?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2006 08:45:08 PM
What the?? How did he get so high ? Trampoline? Great colours

i can't imagine how you did this with... basic editing. Waiting to read the details in your post. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/02/2006 10:36:01 PM
nice use of the upside down move. with so much of the phot reflection it really through off the viewers equilibrium.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/02/2006 06:20:47 PM
I can't wait to see the details. To capture the subject without blur but slow enough to gather enough of the star light? And certainly there must be a trampoline somwhere below? Very curious photo but I like it a lot.
