[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My cousin (on the right) and her friend have designs on becoming models. Emma, my cousin had asked me to take a few pictures for her a few months ago, and then she asked me to do so again, along with her friend. After a few typical posing-type shots, they decided they wanted pictures of the two together while bouncing on the trampeline in the back garden. I struggled to get them both in the frame without too much distracting background. The colours of the clothing, the wall and sky got in the way and I think the black & white is very effective in capturing the moment and giving the picture emotion and feeling.
But most importantly, I was glad that I actually got a relatively sharp image. This was the first time I had used one of the programme modes on the D70 and the C-AF didn't do too badly!

very cool picture! the black and white was a nice choice. nice sharp picture and i can see why with a shutter speed that fast lol. great shot

Great shot David, i think the light and contrast just perfect and captured on the right moment...well done!!!


great dynamic photo :) wow! :)

This is a great action shot David! Excellent tones and sharpness, and you did a very good job of getting a good composition. B&W worked very well here too.

Good work!

The contrast levels are very good and create two very defined subjects. The energy in the photo is also coveyed quite nicely.
Good photo.


Great use of B&W. And the action is well "frozen". Very fun pose.

Spoko ujÍcie. :-)

I like the contrast between the two girls: static - action, dark - white.
Too bad we can't remove the brick wall, but otherwise I like it.
