Couldn't have had any better timing on this one! She even looks like she's looking right at the camera and smiling for us!

I'm not crazy about the composition of this one, but I have to give you credit for capturing the decisive moment. The jump's apogee combined with the great expression make for an excellent photo. Just wish it was a bit sharper and the shutter had been a bit quicker to freeze the action better.

great timing, good catch. I would crop away part of the top to avoid the purple, the stones and the bright patch in the top left.
