I like this one better than your ribbon winner. The pose (sorry, don't know the lingo - it is some kind of grab!) isn't quite as dramatic, but the overall processing, though subtly different, is much better.

Yikes, this makes my stomach do flips just looking at it. Pretty cool capture though.

The figure is a little on the small side in the frame, but what an awesome catch in flight!

That is ridiculous air!!! Great capture and perspective of the subject flying over the city. The smoggy feel may affect your result. Good Luck. 6.

i like this. I like the positioning of the skier. I held up some paper to crop out the foreground on the left and bottom (flag and trees) and i found it more amazing. nice

01/23/2008 07:33:38 PM
excellent shot. I like the version with him upside down better, but this is great as well.

Excellent definition of that boarder. 8

Wow, great perspective! This is an awesome shot. Great work.

Whoa! This is AWESOME! It looks like he's going to land where there's no snow -- but I guess it's the perspective. Fantastic job!

Very cool action shot! I like how he stands out so well next to the sky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2008 06:41:39 AM
Holy hell thats some air he cought! And the background sure makes this image impressive. Great image, well composed. My first 10 in long time.

Just a little more air and he would have made Lions Gate. Another wonderful photo.

This is awesome!.. I think it may already be in my favorites

I know camera angles can lie but I'm guessing this is HUGE air even in real life.

Reminds me of those Olympic diving shots in Barcelona, what a great backdrop and a great image, well done :)

Wow. Phenomenal.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2008 07:38:42 PM
option? great air shot, but it would be nicer to see more of the boarder and less of the city. 720 pixels is not enough to do this justice.

01/21/2008 10:12:15 AM
Wow this looks scary! Cool shot!
