Rode about 8km on my bike to the Sugar Loaf. Walked 30 minutes uphill on the Urca mountain (the lower one on the sugar loaf twins). Rested for awhile so I could get energy to take the shot from a cliff besides the trail. I am actually sitted on a tree that stands on the edge of the hill. It was fun to take this shots, simulating the slipping on the hill...
I dont know if this will have a good score, but i think that i will get more comments than usual!

Hey there from the Critique Club

Camera Work/Technical: I like what you have done with the technical aspect of this image. The depth of field is terrific, as is the choice of a shutter speed that would keep most of the frame in focus, while, at the same time, allow the motion of the leg to blur.

Lighting: Every part of your lighting is nice and even save the upper left corner. That hot spot grabs my eye and prevents it from roaming the frame as is should.

Composition/Content: I do like the flow of your composition. The legs serve very well to dray the eye into the frame, and, if it were not for the hot spot, the distant town and waters would serve even further to do more of the same.

My Opinion: I think this image, as it is shot and processed, met the challenge very well and very creatively, as well as placed about where it should have in voting. Shot at a different time of day and without that hot spot, I think this one could have crept up into the top 10.

Thank you for the opportunity to provide a critique on your entry,

wow - that could have been realy bad. You posted this...so I assume you are still alive : ) Was this planned? I don't see how it could have been. I'm giving you a high vote because the view is great. Hopefull I won't find out that this was staged : ) Only problem with it is the blown out highlight on the left top of the screen....but I'm sure you knew that.
