Very nice choice! The rotation really sells the effect.

Wow, I didn't vote on this challenge and I just saw this picture on the top 3 and I clicked on it. I couldn't figure out how you done it until I saw the challenge title seconds later, even then I had a moment of disbelief..well done

Very creative! This should have ended up in first place instead of third.

I am so glad you posted the details. Made me smile. My husband and I had a long discussion in challenge trying to figure out how you did this. I decided that he had to be a base jumper.... : ) Great job and thanks for the entertainment. Congrats on the ribbon.

To answer how I did this I will post my original soon. I also want to thank my AMAZING friend for risking his life for my photo. What you can't see in the photo or the original is that the point where he was standing and jumping from was about 18 - 24 inches wide and very uneven. Considering he is afraid of heights I would say I owe him BIG TIME!!
03/12/2008 11:01:46 AM
OMG! How in the WORLD did you do that. Please, please PLEEASE put the details in this one! It's cruel and unusual punishment to let see something like this and not know the story behind it! Please???

Oh. . .and congratulations on the WELL-DESERVED ribbon! I LOVE this!

This is quite brilliant. I'd love to read the details.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2008 08:53:19 AM
Hmmn! Very good idea! I must have a go at this - guess if we rotated the clouds so they looked horizontal, it would look even better, and maybe cloned the 'bottom' of the 'cliff', so it comes back over to the right some, I could be happily fooled into a sharp intake of breath, and wondering at what a good friend to have sacrificed so much for a friend. No second replays on this one?

rotating photo
03/12/2008 02:22:51 AM
I scored this one pretty high because it was memorable. I thought he was a base jumper at first but as I take a closer look, the light source (sun) is from the bottom. I'm guessing this is a very clever spin on "Tilted". You just flipped the photo upside down. He didn't fall...he jumped. Then landed back on the outcropping. That's awesome! Fooled me.

Congratulations on the ribbon. Judging by some of the comments, it seems you took quite a few people in as to how you did it... ;-)

HOORAH!!!

Congrats! Terrific shot. Would love to know how many tries it took to get it "just right."

Great capture!

03/11/2008 12:56:30 PM
Scary.... not sure if you are jumping or flinging yourself backward...anyways, hope there was something soft under you :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent, well captured. Very impressive well done

Very creative way of using an alternative angle. I hope the landing was soft. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2008 07:20:25 AM
Well now that just looks scary. Great capture.

Nice capture and use of tilt to make it appear like he is falling, well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

great idea, one of my favorites for this challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/09/2008 07:33:19 PM
Ok, for my own sanity, I'm going to hope that this shot is rotated and that your very helpful model was just jumping in the air and posing. If the poor guy really is falling... *gulp* Great use of angles and tilt!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/09/2008 07:19:54 PM
!!!
03/08/2008 10:38:08 PM
I see what you're up to. Very clever and very effective!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/08/2008 12:30:19 PM
I'm hoping he is a base jumper. Would have liked a little tighter crop on the falling man but other than that...I really like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/08/2008 02:07:54 AM
This was the best time. That first day I got a 7 hour conversation and a great tan. The second day you got a great photo. I hope it ribbons. BTW I'm very proud of how CREATIVE you have been over the last couple of months. It's been memorable.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/08/2008 01:41:22 AM
This turned out great. Just one question, how many times did he scream before hitting the bottom, was he able to use his cell phone and call for help, who's idea was it to climb Koko Head at the hottest time of the day in designer gear?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/07/2008 08:36:51 PM
Clever shot, but of course, the sun must be shining from the bottom.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/07/2008 12:40:33 PM
Upside down is tilted.Nice job

03/06/2008 09:24:54 PM
I've only been through a few entries, but I have to tell you, this one will be hard to beat. The only way I could figure it out was to orient with the clouds. Great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I hurt my neck trying to look at this image. I really like it, the movement is great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

7 - Good use of the theme. Even right way around with this scene produces a strong image.

Cant tell if this is an actual fall or shot at a different angle and rotated! Great job!
