First submission in a while, just been waiting for the mood to strike! And this day, I just felt like "Flying".

Used the 10 second delay and then I just timed the jump. Surprisingly this was the first try and the rest didn't really match up. And also the tracks in the snow got a bit more noticeble because I stumbled a couple of times when rushing to the "jump site".

I really love this - the silhouette, the point of takeoff, the deep colors ... Congrats on top 10!

Pretty spectacular positioning in front of the sun, too. Darned impressive for a self-portrait!

Love self-portraits on a timer. They always make for the best outtakes :-) Congrats on the front page.

Getting more a feeling of floating or hovering than flying in this photo. Otherwise like it.

It does, in fact, look like he is taking off. Beautifully framed and captured.

Nice effect. Would have been great to cover the trails somehow :)

Saw this in screening at 1x - liked it there, like it here! The sense of floating is excellent.

La pose del sujeto es genial, no se si la logro saltando, pero si fue asi consiguio darle un efecto tan real como si estuviera flotando, no se ve como si saltara. El entorno tambien esta muy bien. Excelente foto.
