This shot is about timing in an action scenario...

These two guys were having lots of fun jumping from the harbor again and again.
It is a very high jump, but they were very brave and talented, so no problem at all :)

I posted the original image in the Workshop so you can see the real distance to the water, it is huge!

This one is cropped, I also added a cinematic frame to enhance the action mood.

Nice action shot Galder. OMG, that is a long ways down!!! You wouldn't catch me doing that.
I might have tried to show a little of that distance .. somehow it looks like he is about to dive into the corner of the frame. Still, good action captured. I like the cinematic frame too.
Have a nice weekend.

Hello Galder

I like it. An action image with emotion. You can tell in their faces that they are having a good time. Nice candid work. The original is awesome all by itself. need to post that one also.


Hello Galder,

Great action shot! While this photo provids more details I think I prefer the workshop version as it makes more of an impact... and it also shows the No Diving sign, which I find kind of funny..
