A great sense of unbound freedom...like all of life's little worries don't matter. The near monochromatic look to this is great. Nicely done!

2nd one in a row I got that had "Icarus" in the title...

Very nice composition, the clouds help give you some idea of just how high he is (or could be).

Interesting perspective. Paragliding...not really wings. But..why not. 6

Love the cool shades of blue. Those cool shades make me feel the chill rush of air along with this airborne rider. This is a great capture of the hangglider as he/she rides the wind quite. It would have been nice had the clouds parted a bit more so that the peak of the mountain would compliment the peak on the hanglider - but mother nature is never co-operative;-) I am not so sure on your choice of 'border'. In one respect it gives it a 'widescreen' movie feel so that it gives one a sense of wide open spaces and a wide scale. On the other hand it sometimes detracts in that it calls a bit of attention away from what is a simple & clean shot.
