This is a friend of mine, Grant. Grant wants to be a stunt man in Hollywood some day, so I figured I'd help jumpstart his career be having him dive-roll over some graves. I hope the passerbys didn't get too offended when they saw my small friend leaping over the dead.

Post: Desat, cloning, curves, contrast, USM, crop.

This entry is a bit risky but I figured I better think outside the box so that my image would stand out when people are clicking through.

Who's that stud? I like what you've done with the piece, but who are you calling small?

This was my only 10 in the challenge. Thought it would have finished way higher. I like that you caught your 'stuntman' in mid flight but with the angle you used, there was just enough of a ghost effect for me towards his feet making it look like he was being pulled towards the after life instead of jumping into the grave. Nice idea and work.

Fantastical concept...a sense of eternal movement, bringing this challenge into the spiritual realm of our eternal life beyond the grave. Thanks for your creative vision.

Well, I take it you didn't heed the 'tread carefully' advice then! Weird and humourous approach, but I do think he looks like he's diving in than resisting the inevitable (unless I'm missing something?).

I am making two passes on this Challenge. I will vote on your photo then return later(before voting is over) to comment on what I like and dislike about your shot. You can take the comments however you wish and I will try not to be mean. Just don't take it the wrong way.

Funny. Not sure I agree with it as far as taste goes.

What a shot - what an idea - I don't think anyone's ever taken a photo like this before.

I bet you won't win a ribbon for some entirely dull technical reason -
but I if it was up to me you'd come in first.

Keep innovating, whoever you are.

Neat picture. Is he suppose to be holding himself back? Like the creativity though.

Great idea and powerful juxtaposition between the active figure and the static ground- but shouldn't he be jumping *up*?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting idea but the position of the main subject (that particular gravestone and the "ghost") within the overall image doesn't make for a strong composition for me.
