The mid jump is nice! Great dusk color, too.

Nice, soft lighting and gentle colors.
The jumping boy makes the shot, but he's a bit too lost in the scene. Maybe cutoff the sky and woods altogether (although they are nice) to give him more prominence?
Also, the reflection of the man has it's head chopped off and is slightly distracting. A full reflection might've been better although it wouldn't be a clear reflection.
