I was going to title this crazy tourist.. but then after really looking to me it looks like the para sail is winking... and all will be ok!

Taken on vacation in May...

I posted one shot of this para sail at rest here is a shot of it in action.. No clue who the brave soul was but you can count on it that I did not give it a try...

PP work.. tried to use levels (is that the same as histogram?) crop.. little light on shadows and sharp size no big old frame..... in a rut

I like this, Tricia - the boldyellow really stands out well against that lovely blue sky and the composition is good with the parasailer heading across the frame like that. Nice, fun shot.

I truly appreciated your point of view here Tricia and also the clearness. An original subject that's sure.

Very nicely composed Tricia.. grand colours making it eyecatching.. gotta love that wink.. well done to you.


hi tricia, neat shot, nice rich colors and great contrast, good composition, a basic yet very effective composition actually, neat to look at,

Yes, you do levels with the histogram adjustment. You can also attempt it with contrast and brightness, but histogram is much better tool! NICE intense BLUE sky here Tricia! LOVE the colors! Really crazy tourist! NO WAY would you get me up here!! too scary!

Hi Tricia,

I have been admiring the action on Aruba and from what I can judge they always get back into the boat safe and in one piece. So maybe it is not that dangerous (not that I go up mind you).
Lovely winking parasail against the blue tropical sky, gliding in the always blowing trade winds mmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Got to add this one to my summertheme, easy for me to enjoy it some more.
