Post challenge:

Thanks to y'all for your kind comments. This is one of the first sets of freefall stills that I took and I was really pleased with this one. (So was 'Al'!)

As soon as the UK weather clears, I'll be up there again, this time looking for the artistic angle so you may see some more of these shots in the future... :o)

Instead of looking like a snapshot to me, I was instantly impressed with how nicely it was composed.

And somebody said no one from DPC would jump out of perfectly good aircraft! I know that composition must be difficult in free fall. You've done a very good job and included enough of the distant sky to give a very good representation of place! Very nice.

Does this count as dropping your camera? Wouldn't want to void your warranty, right? Oh, by the way...nice capture.

While I am sure it was very fun, it seems snapshotish to me.
