How did he through the child up in the air when he has no arms? :-P Cute shot bot it's kinda dark and you ahave some haloing and color banding issues. The haloing is probably form oversharpening. The color banding may be from how you resized the shot...

i love this picture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/14/2005 12:15:59 PM
clever title but the shorts sort of wreck the whole beginning of life theme
and now that I think about it maybe the title is even too much....
08/14/2005 07:53:11 AM
Very cool.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/14/2005 02:09:42 AM
The pose of the child is awesome. It reminds me of the Morpheus vs. Neo kungfu scene from The Matrix. At first I didn't get the illusion, but after reading the title it's hard to see it any other way! This is one of the best images in the challenge (except for my own image, of course ;) )

LOVELY !! GREAT COLOURS AND CAPTURE
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2005 09:30:01 AM
Love the soft pastel pink and how it complements the darker portions of your image. Good stop motion to freeze movement and enhance the illusion. I do however, wish the outstretched arms of the man was more visible, which would require a different shooting angle. Good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/12/2005 05:32:12 PM
wow. that kid sure has some air. nice tinting and use of negative space. neatimage looks like it was used, maybe a bit too much--
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/12/2005 05:13:31 PM
This is cool. I can almost see the excitement in your sons face :) Don't drop the baby! I really like this photo. Bumping from 7 to 10.

Does he bounce?
great shot

good luck

This might have done for the rain challenge too! The pink tones are nice and create a lovely softness. Very cute idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/12/2005 12:33:20 AM
Very strong. Even the centering of the child (pyschological place of importance) enhances the image. Clean, simple, powerful. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2005 11:26:56 PM
I really like this photo!!! The set up, the pinkish/purple hue to the sky, the way the baby seems to hang weightless in the sky... 10 !!!
The only minor thing I might have changed (IMHO) would have been the bit of background at the bottom. I think that an even lower angle where the adult's feet are more even with the horizon might have increased the contrast of the entire body...but that's so minor! Wonderful photo!!! well done...hope you ribbon

sweet. wish the outstretched arms of the father were more visible, slightly raked forward...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2005 07:12:06 PM
Cute, sweet and most lovable.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2005 04:38:06 PM
I hope the kid is alwright:/
If I would do that i would do it in a water... The hands of the man could be littel more visual . Like littel infront of his face.
08/11/2005 02:25:01 PM
I hope you catched the kid. 8

wow...talk about uncomfortable, creepy feelings from a photo. the postprocessing really adds to the feeling for me. nice work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/10/2005 05:14:28 PM
My only 10 for this challenge. The pinkish tone is right between warm and cold, composition is great. I know that you can throw a kid up that high (I've been there, up high) so it might not be a true illussion, but I don't care.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/10/2005 04:16:07 PM
I think this is adorable. Nice use of negative space, and great creativity.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/10/2005 01:55:15 PM
A moment in time captured for all to admire, simple illusion which whilst being rather too darl for my taste, still has a moreish quality
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/10/2005 05:03:15 AM
This really would have been amazing if the man was cropped out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2005 09:54:16 PM
Simply Fantastic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2005 08:09:42 PM
wow you really tossed him way up! He does look like he's dropping down.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2005 03:19:36 PM
Nicely done - 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2005 02:11:22 PM
One word - Fantastic... I wouldn't change a thing... I bet the kid had a good time with this one... I really hope you were VERY CAREFUL while shooting this one though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2005 01:00:01 PM
Did you really throw him that high? Love the tones and the dreamy ffeel of the shot...I bet you'll be top 10!

this is nice, amazing colours and frame
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2005 08:28:49 AM
Hope you made the catch. Good idea, the framing of the photo is great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2005 05:31:58 AM
Nice work, this image certainly catches the eye and the illusion is real. I like the use of the light to bring out such nice colours.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2005 04:52:36 AM
I love this! It looks dangerous though ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2005 02:52:52 AM
Geez, the Storks are getting too lazy to land and deliver! LOL
This is a very compelling image! Might draw some gasps and comparisons to Michael Jackson dangling his kid off the balcony, but I give you the benefit of the doubt that you actually caught the kid safel on his way down. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2005 07:52:53 PM
what a sweet capture! I hope your fast, maybe your arms should be outstretched a little so i know your gonna make the grab!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2005 05:51:27 PM
Beautifull image! Youd probably get arrested for doing that in some parts of the US though!
Great emotive shot. One of my favourites of the challenge!

nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2005 11:14:02 AM
i like the color, i wish the guy had his arms out to catch the baby :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2005 10:31:30 AM
Ack!! This picture makes me nervous because I'm not sure how it was done and if the baby was actually thrown that high in the air. Technically, this is a great work of art. I really like the lighting, background, composition, the muted colors... ALL OF IT. Even the way the poses of both baby and father are simular. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2005 09:50:11 AM
Way cool. Almost looks like there was a slide or something there that has been removed (as the kid's legs seem to be cutoff), but still very good shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2005 09:42:05 AM
Interesting shot...hope you didn't drop him...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2005 09:37:42 AM
So very charming...I do love the soft pink hue...very nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2005 08:30:06 AM
Great shot.
Feel pretty scared for the kid though.
No Penalty for that though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2005 08:09:12 AM
Yikes! I hope you didn't throw him up!! Scary! Neat picture!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2005 02:39:45 AM
Great photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2005 02:33:48 AM
Must have been more impactful if man is in an act of receiving. Would have shown more details of his arms. Great photo though. congrats!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2005 02:17:35 AM
a legless child? is that the illusion?
08/08/2005 02:10:23 AM
i love the idea of this photo though i cant help worry that daddy didnt catch the baby! My only complaint is my eye keeps being drawn to the structure on the horizon to the left - a little tighter crop perhaps would have been better. Great image though.
08/08/2005 12:47:15 AM
my guess is you're gonna get a lot of flac for this shot
08/08/2005 12:24:24 AM
Great idea, I hope you made the catch! ;-) I do this all the time with my little one it never occured to me to capture it on file!
