Hi Janice, I like this shot. I would like to try sky diving one day! The pattern of the smoke is interesting and certainly directs our eye right to the skydiver. Beautiful blue sky accentuates all of the colors.

Wow Janice - this certainly jumps out on the screen.
It looks so dangerous and you were lucky to get the fellow at just this spot. What an amazing feat.
Good capture and focus too

Hi Janice...excellent shot..your framing with the curvature of the smoke is excellent.


Hi Janice,

Really the best shot of sky diving, very well composed and the smoke variation is so beautifu. very difficult to take.

Brilliant details with nice composition.

A very strong shot which is well composed, finely detailed with vibrant colours. A couple of feint spots (just right of centre) would not normally be visible but on this shot, with the flat blue sky, they cause a slight distraction. Otherwise a very successful shot.
(They look like sensor dust spots to me).

Hi Janice...
Beautiful event shot...
beautiful timing, colors, composition...

Hi Janice,
Good to see You here also, my Lady Friend. Not the kind of shot I used to critique from You on TN. :) But a very impressive one, with perfect timing, colors, dynamism and composition. A pleasant view without doubt, even there was some sensor dust on Your lens (right from the skywalker). Great job, congrats and tfs.
Friendly regards, László
