I love this shot, its the extra space added that make s this special, the amount of darkened backdrop enhances the gymnast. Can you add the original before the pp as would like to see what was above the guy as you have left a few telltale lines, great shot. tfs
Thanks for the photo. Thanks for the note. Looking your photo I see the beauty of Gynastic and a great moment to delicious my eyes and mind.

Fantastic shot Roger, very fitting for a July 4th posting. The action is well captured, and it's great to have the athlete to the left with the oof flag providing balance and a perspective of sorts.

A well caught moment with superb details and natural skin tones, Roger!
The performer is well frozen with superb sharpness and focus.
Light and exposure are amazing and contrast against a darker BG is well kept.
The flag of U.S. does add mood into the overall scene.
Thanks for sharing another wonderful work from Olympic Sports trials.

Hi Roger, its getting late so my brain just didnt do a good job of keeping up with your notes. I think I'll go over it again tomorrow.Must have been a lot of chalk dust in the air above his legs where you cloned out the bg.I love the expression you caught on his face.Fiona

A superb decisive moment shot of the athlete. Good sharpness & graphism despite the fast movement. Again I like the US flag at right adding context & here the Olympian is better separated from the flag. I might have blurred that sharply defined line above his finger at left. Tfs!

Bom dia Roger,
I believe that already have highlighted in another previous comment the wise use you make of empty spaces.
This photo that is among the best that you've already done is one example.
To place the main subject of the photo on one of the corners of the photo is a boldness. But as soon as we have concluded that it could not be otherwise for giving space to what is not in the picture, but in our emotion, a celebration of the effort to overcome limits.
Great and beautiful image.
