Love the posture ... one foot pointed, the other flexed, arms flying.
I really like this image, the grayscale is nice but I wonder how the natural color would look. Lastly, I would like to see a bit more "sea" in the foreground, it seems it would balance the massive rock within the frame.

Lot's of air--Wonderfulshot

Very nice tonal range and excellent detail.

Yikes! I hope he clears those rocks! I like seeing this in B/W. I think it probably helps to keep the focus on the jumper and eliminate other distractions. Only suggestion is maybe to add a shot of contrast - looks a tad bit flat. Good luck.

awesome! this has got to be a front-pager!
08/11/2006 03:51:56 AM
Sweet framing. Interesting choice of B/W. I like it.
08/10/2006 07:13:51 PM
Great angle. The bird(?) looks a bit like a dust speck at this size. No biggie though.
08/10/2006 05:21:32 PM
Good choice with the b/w. The divers body positon adds interest too. Good job. 9

Great shot! I love the scale between the jumper and rock
08/10/2006 06:36:07 AM

superb stuff! colours, composition, the jumpers poncy flash pose, it's all great. the grey almost bluescale really works well and adds atmosphere... the only last thing i might do is clone out the little bird, but it's not majorly distracting... excellent. 10.

I love the limb positions, which make this more interesting
08/07/2006 03:00:21 PM
Great capture and treatment. From this perspective it looks like he won't clear the rock!
08/07/2006 02:39:17 PM
Hard to resist. Perhaps up the contrast a hair.
08/07/2006 02:28:55 PM
If your average on this photo isn't in the 7's. ..I quit! This is absolutely spectacular! I hope he cleared the rocks tho. . .he looks awfully close there. What an AMAZING photo! 10

i like the colors and find this to be a very nice black and white picture
08/07/2006 11:25:53 AM
great photo, I think it would be better with some of the left side cropped out.
08/07/2006 06:24:04 AM

08/07/2006 01:26:18 AM
