Challenge: Upside Down II (Basic Editing)
Collection: Challenges People
Camera: Canon EOS-5D
Lens: Canon EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 II USM
Location: Australia
Date: Aug 5, 2007
Aperture: 7.1
ISO: 500
Shutter: 1/1250
Galleries: Humorous, Children
Date Uploaded: Aug 5, 2007

This was taken with the camera upside down. We were 4 meters (12 feet) in the air on the second floor of a building under construction. Kita was balanced 1 meter (3 foot) from the edge of the building. She was more scared of climbing the ladder up to the second storey then she was to do the handstand up there!!! Go figure.

The metal framing is actually the roof frame of the building. I used manual settings due to the awkward pose from both of us.

I took this under the original challenge details.

Wow!

Picture is great - very impressive. My brother was as cool about danger as she is - Me, I wouldn't go near the edge without a safety harness and a parachute, never mind handstanding - such is life. Hope she doesn't take it up for a living. Future venues for her could include the Grand Canyon?

I am amazed she has the strength to do that - must be very slim and light. Me - I cracked a rib leaning over the back of a couch - but I weigh about 225 pounds, so no shock there!

You have inspired me to diet - so well done with the first picture in your motivational photo series, and the best for future photos!

Really??? Funny that...I must remember not to go anywhere in case there are already ideas out there.

Considering I have never been out of Australia...I doubt I could have 'STOLEN' it!!!

How about an apology now...! You were quite willing to accuse me in front of everyone...now that you know you were false in your accusations...you should also aplogize in front of everyone.

Language barriers or not....what you wrote was wrong...!

Well it seems that your account has now been de-activated. Hmmmm!! Isn't that interesting?

Congratulations! A great shot--especially under the circumstances. You truly followed the guidelines, too. With regard to the criticism that you "stole" the idea, I would remind us that if every composition idea had to be original, few could enter anything!

So... if your child had lost her balance she could have fallen 12 feet? Am I missing something?

well-deserved ribbon here, especially as you did it under the (somewhat confusing, or topsy-turvey) original description.
