This shot totaly rocks. It was one of my favorites from the challenge for sure. Very creative.

Oh ok. Let me explain a bit more. That metal thing on the right side of the screen is a big spherical sculpture. He is holding onto that. And yes, it was shot using a fisheye.

It's cool, no doubt about that, but I still don't really understand how this is a single photo and with no cloning, etc. I did not vote, btw. Does this guy have superpowers that enables him to fly vertically? I am not questioning your honesty at all, just intrigued and completely stumped (perhaps just ignorant). To me, you mostly just explained how you exposed for everything. What is he grabbing onto? Was this a fisheye lens? Do you have any outtakes? Sorry for my ignorance, but it's a noodle scratcher.

Thanks everybody. I'm a humble person, but I also believe that this should've scored higher :-P

It was a simple setup.

I set the camera to underexpose the ambient light by a stop and a half. Then I introduced an AB800 camera left (40 degree grid attached) to expose the subject (logan, a.k.a. username kyebosh.)

He started walking towards the camera, jumped up, and swung his legs way out.

Thats it :) pretty simple.

I think I got a lot of low votes b/c people thought that I violated the rules.

Oh well. Maybe I'll ribbon some day.
