Funny how a lot of people add in their comments how they like the sand in the air. There was a moment I wanted to clone it out! ;-)

Thanks for the comparison with Coley or DrAchoo, and I'll tell my model he looks like Charlie Chaplin in the photo!

This was taken at 24-3-2007 for my study.

I had to come back and see whose this was, since I found one I KNEW was Coley's after I thought this was. I'm not surprised that it's yours :D

Oh, and I just noticed that Coley is right behind you!

well captured. would boost the contrast a bit more. at left side there are some strange color effects, pink and green banding, that sometimes happening when you do hue/sat or levels adjustments after toning the image

I absolutely LOVE the emotion captured here! This has such a happy, good vibe to it! This gentleman displays a zest for life as he is over the moon happy with joy in his leap in the air and clicking his heels. Great action and emotion captured in this composition. Love how we see some sand being kicked up from his shoes. The B&W processing is great with a superb balance of tones. The silhouette of the man is perfect. This is a wonderfully emotive shot - thank you for sharing it. It made me smile.
