Regarding your question about impact and my initial comment. Keep in mind, this is one opinion. . . as it stands, it is very appealing. I can see it in a tutorial or a written piece on free running. For a greater human impact, it needs context. . . other participants, or random people, watching. . . I can imagine the varied expressions as they watched. It becomes a street image, or candid, loaded with story, not the least of which is the act of free running in a rigid city environment, etc. That would make it memorable beyond the splendid action. Cheers, Ben

Wow. My apologies for the keyboard vote leaving a comment. Why a 5? A fine photo, great action and sense of freedom, it just didn't strike me as a memorable photograph due in part to a rather static composition and a one dimensional interpretation.

Sharp, current, and screams freedom, especially with the title to help. Perhaps actual free running (as opposed to this stunt) would have been better, but it's still excellent.
