Okay well I wasn't really going for this look but when doing the shoot I was running out of ideas and ended up with this. It's almost like ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' steinarFall From the Sky seen here...
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/496/120/335951.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/496/120/335951.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
The look that I was really going for was this picture... Link to Image After shooting some like that I ended up jumping and doing some stupid crap in the air and that is how I ended up with this picture that I'm sure will score a low 5 because of my face. Looks like I'm trying to take a crap IMPO. UGhhhh And this was one of my best shots.....

okay I've gone from low 5 to I'm guessing a 5.8 +/-.100

Did a lot better than you expected! What makes this work is the position of the sun in the shot and that lovely golden glow on the road. Nice!

Very cool stopped motion. I like the clouds here they add great charactor to this. BB

Great effect.

nice. A retake of an idea previously, but it's done well. My only objection here (which I bet you liked it very much) the underarm sun. If that sun would be behind you, it would be much better photo in my opinion. Overall is a good photo :)

Good colours, good light, nice use of flash (or reflector), nicepose, and you look like a fun guy to hang around with. Well done presentation.

I'd be a lot happier with this one if I could really make out some detail around the feet...

great jump timing (specially with sun's position). light could have been more uniform across your body.

Great job

Great processing and perspective, the lighting behind you is great aswell

Think you missed your calling in life as a dancer.... great shot, would have been great even without the sun behind you but nice touch regardless... 9

Good timing!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The background is beautiful and attracts more attention than yourself. I think you should cover the sun with you body, and just a little more light on you, would make it much better. 5.

How many takes did this take? Great positioning! I like the gold road.

Might as well. :)

Very athletic! Perfect positioning of the sun to get those rays spreading across you (you avoided having them come directly out of your armpit, too), and I like the off-kilter composition.

Great air man. Sweet composition and lighting. Despite the hard light behind you, you did a great job lighting your face. Nice work.

Excellent perspective! This is so creative and interesting!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 12:19:11 PM
Very well done. It must have been very difficult to get the sun just under your arm.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 10:43:41 AM
What a fun shot! Well done.
