I really wanted to enter an image for this challenge. I am mostly back to normal except for a few issues, which may never return. But I had to do this. My physio is going to be angry with me, and I knew it would hurt. I have been wobbly since jumping for this image and hurting all over...but I had to do it. For me.

I am not expecting this image to do well. I couldn't get the height or distance I wanted and I had to quit after this jump. But I don't care. I did it.

A leap of faith. I knew you could do it! Keep going, you're such an inspiration to me. (Almost as much as Chris was) I met a man confined to a wheelchair on my vacation. They invited us to his Penthouse condo for a party and I told him a little about you. I also told him that I think healing is 60 percentt our own willpower and desire.

Hahaha...I did show this to my physio. He loved it and said it was worth it and then worked on my for 3 days straight to get me back to where I was..lmao! He keeps asking me how it is going in voting..now I can tell him...! He understood why I did it.

Excellent. Great background and colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/30/2010 02:21:00 PM
Beautiful image but a couple of details detract for me: the rightmost foot is cropped off or just waaaay too tight to the edge. The white lines limit the image and add a sense of claustrophobia that doesn't support the emotion of the image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/30/2010 07:54:51 AM
Beautiful!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/29/2010 06:27:35 PM
This looks so Judi-ish it's unreal. Yeah, this will be front page alright...

Just one small flaw, no space on the right hand side behind her foot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/29/2010 06:20:19 PM
Great jump combined with a nice sunset - love it!
Wonder if it'd been better if there was more space between the foot and the right edge of the shot though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/29/2010 04:14:19 PM
Oh yeah!

10/29/2010 03:29:45 AM
