The beach of Monastir ends with a unique and original rock formation that always has become a kind of natural swimming pool complete with a diving board where the kids have fun.I haven't news of accidents, but the bottom is very low and this activity it is quite dangerous, but here everything is possible ......
VOLA CON ME
La spiaggia di Monastir termina con una unica ed originale formazione rocciosa che da sempre è diventata una specie di piscina naturale con tanto di trampolino da dove i ragazzi si divertono a tuffarsi.Non ho notizie di incidenti,ma il fondale è molto basso e questa attività è abbastanza pericolosa,ma qui tutto è consentito......

Tu as bien capturé l'action des jeunes plongeurs. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de ce promontoire. La bonne luminosité donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.

Lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazan trenutak.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak, lepe boje.
Skokovi u vodu su opasni.
Imajte lep dan, sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.
Nice view and a moment ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated moment.
Good work, nice captured moment, beautiful colors.
Jumping into the water are dangerous.
Have a nice day, all the best for the weekend, good luck.

Ciao Luciano, I do not like such places as I am afraid that nasty accident can happen. But here was everything OK. Perfect timing, it seems that a guy is really flying. Excellent shot.
Warm regrads Malgo
jemaflor (96143) 2014-07-31 23:22
Très bien pris, au bon moment avec ce plongeur en plein vol, parfaite netteté.
Indrasish (2939) 2014-08-01 0:14
Wow!! What a shot!! Your higher shutter speed worked well.. I like your composition with this boys and the rock.. Also nice background too.. Excellent image clarity and nice color tone too.. Very well done my friend..
Good afternoon and best wishes from Kolkata, India..
miumiu (6113) 2014-08-01 1:11
Fantastic moment and capture!
l like the hot, summer lights on the rocks.
This is a very impressive rock...looks very dangerous...
ourania (44398) 2014-08-01 1:29
una foto magnifica! In una composizione ben equilibrata sei riuscito di presentare il paesaggio e catturare l' azione in modo perfetto. La nitidezza e' impressionante, il ragazzo sembra volare e mi piace tantissimo come lo guardano incantati i suoi compagni. Hai fermato l' attimo impressionatamente e tutti i colori e le tessiture sono assolutamente naturali. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buon mese,
rbassin (22659) 2014-08-01 1:38
Un superbe plongeon, je suppose que c'est toi ?
Bonne composition et bon timing sur le plongeur.
rasterman (479) 2014-08-01 1:40
Fantastic photo at the right moment jump. Good definition and exposure. Good sharpness and textures of rocks. The boy is jumping in the perfect position. Great job.
Royaldevon (37999) 2014-08-01 2:03
Ciao Caro Luciano,
I just love this!
The guy is frozen in time, though you expect him to move and hit the water at any moment!
A very well composed shot, perfectly executed.
Have a great w/e,
jmdias (63504) 2014-08-01 2:28
a little masterpiece.
I liked the sense of opportunity you have here. the use of the exact moment. the framing, colors and details are precious. looks like the old guy is teaching the new ones how to do the flying. many people lost the best of their lives after to play this way.
snunney (97639) 2014-08-01 2:48
A pastime not for the faint-hearted:-) Captured at just the right moment and the right point of view with the diver mid-flight and his companions looking on. First class technical presentation with superb light and colours.
jhm (151570) 2014-08-01 5:06
Yes young boys are sometimes a little dangerous with their life.
I am self a very well diver but never without research of the soil.
Sharpness and clarity makes these picture very lovely.
Your picture cares for depth and perspective.
Very well composition.
Nice done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
timecapturer (49288) 2014-08-01 5:38
looks dangerous - but exhilarating I bet! Superbly captured action shot, perfectly executed.
Have a good weekend - B.
Sergiom (77537) 2014-08-01 6:34
Tu l'as capté juste au bon moment ce gracieux plongeur admiré par tous ses amis qui le regardent comme si il était la vedette d'un documentaire sur les oiseaux.Vraiment beau.
danos (96842) 2014-08-01 7:23
the flying Dutchman or the flying boy from Monastir? Great the snapsht with the timing of the shot to be ery successful.Excellent the light and the colour management of the photo as the quality of the scene.
Nicou (140194) 2014-08-01 7:27
quelle image superbe cette falaise tout ocre et ce plongeon superbe il vole c'est très haut il a du courage splendide.
Bravo et amitié
ines8 (6112) 2014-08-01 7:40
A very nice scene, good seen, wonderful composition .
All the best,
holmertz (51310) 2014-08-01 8:10
We can only hope that these boys had been diving here before so they knew about the dangers. It looks like great fun and you captured the diving boy at a perfect moment and with perfect sharpness. He has the total attention of all his friends, which adds an interest to the composition.
rychem (34669) 2014-08-01 8:35
Wow, the timing is perfect, great sharpness and light, unique scene
Fis2 (96141) 2014-08-01 9:03
I like frame, colors and sharpness.
Have a nice weekend
swapankumarroy (2847) 2014-08-01 9:08
This is my first experience to visit your album, lovely. It is really difficult to capture but you performed it nicely. Excellent composition, well colour balance and framing.
with best wishes and have a nice weekend.
Silvio1953 (140991) 2014-08-01 10:17
Ciao Luciano, gran tempismo, sembra Superman in volo, piacevole composizione tecnicamente ben eseguita, bravo, buon week end, ciao Silvio
tyro (24414) 2014-08-01 11:29
Ciao caro Luciano,
This really is a fun shot, so well captured with the diver caught spectacularly in mid-air!
I just hope that these young fellows know exactly what they are doing if, as you say, the water is quite shallow here.
A beautiful photograph, very well taken in lovely light and with fine colours, perfect exposure (using an appropriately fast shutter speed) and exceptional details and sharpness.
Noel_Byrne (30546) 2014-08-01 13:05
What perfect timing to Capture this guy in mid flight like this, am excellent moment. I Ike the faces of the other kids tching too, they seem in awe of the flying man! Really super shot.
Have a great weekend.
Giustiniani (3632) 2014-08-01 13:23
une belle capture sous une belle lumière avec un bon cadrage et une superbe qualité d'image.
PiotrF (16860) 2014-08-01 14:00
Wonderful timed shot. I like it. Your picture is very well taken.
Colours, clarity and sharpness are perfect made.
Very well composition, lovely presentation.
mesutilgim (94624) 2014-08-01 14:02
Hello dear Luciano,
Another "masterpiece" in your gallery !
Good observed and captured with perfect pov and timing.
TFS and have a nice weekend
carlo62 (46575) 2014-08-01 15:19
bel colpo, adesso sei pronto per andare a fotografare i mondiali di nuoto divisione...tuffi.
Bella scena, forse un po' troppo pericolosa, ma catturata con grande maestria.
Accattivante la posa dell'"angelo" e sorprendenti le facce degli spettatori.
fritzi007 (10433) 2014-08-01 16:19
ein Foto voll mit Aktion, absolute Qualität, ein Meisterwerk, gratuliere!
macjake (67188) 2014-08-01 17:14
what can I say my friend!
i doubt you could have taken the photo at any other point to get the guy any higher...fun and cool too!
Wish it was in my gallery haha
abmdsudi (53105) 2014-08-01 18:56
This looks like Acapulco cliff diver - à la Monatsir on a smaller scale! Excellent idea, the diver is razor sharp timely shot to perfection so well frozen in the frame backed by the lovely rugged coastline painted by the hand of nature, top marks for inventiveness. Congrats, TFS.
jjcordier (79297) 2014-08-01 22:41
Belle capture en vol avec une netteté parfaite et un timing impeccable.
siudzi (34141) 2014-08-01 23:50
What a superb capture taken with marvelous sense of the moment! Really original one perfectly executed. Like it!
Have a nice weekend!
SnapRJW (31629) 2014-08-02 0:27
Well timed and finely managed Luciano. The young man looks so elegant as he dives but to my mind this looks really dangerous. I like the spectators all of whom are clearly focused on the diver.
SWEETFREEDOM (24619) 2014-08-02 4:54
hai perfettamente congelato la scena in questo scatto. sembra proprio che voli.
sabermonajati (11189) 2014-08-02 5:35
wonderful portrait you captured.
npecanhuk (74932) 2014-08-02 7:49
Great catch here! I love it!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov and composition are all excellent photo qualities!
TFS - congrats,
Enjoy your week-end,
ikeharel (69941) 2014-08-02 10:03
Buona sera Luciano,
A fabulous and precise minute collected, and an excelent photojob done, as always. The rock contourlines beautifully dominating the seascape.
Youngsters have courage to do such sports.
COSTANTINO (64268) 2014-08-02 10:17
Complimenti hai ottenuto una fantastica scena
ottimo POV e buona luce e splendidi colori
cari saluti e buon weekend

maria-v1981 (10932) 2014-08-02 14:32
I've become mother and my time is limited.
Excellent shot and captured at the exact moment. Hopefully, there wasn't too much of a splash. Impressive details and contrasts.
Cricri (117961) 2014-08-02 22:58
OUPS jolie prise super bien prise au moment le plus fort, comme immortaliser dans l'air :-)
très belle couleurs et lumière, vraiment une belle image
willperrett (10421) 2014-08-03 2:56
I've not been to Tunisia, but your collection of images certainly make me think that it should be on my to-do list. Great moment captured.
trevormoffiet (3112) 2014-08-03 2:57
A well=timed action shot with the diver perfectly placed within the frame. The other boys watching the diver are also well-captured. Great photo.
asajernigan (21427) 2014-08-03 6:10
This is a fine action shot. Perfect timing and a fast shutter speed froze the action perfectly. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has fine sharpness.
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-08-03 7:27
I hope he made a great dive otherwise a belly plop would hurt. Awesome timing and capture of this diver. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
claudeD (38168) 2014-08-03 11:07
you have realized here a wonderful action picture with this cliff diver. Very good sharpness and clarity. Excellent contribution t o TE.TFS.
with regards from Luxembourg
Didi (60588) 2014-08-03 11:16
Un bon instant décisif, une scène bien captée
J'apprécie la qualité des optiques
bukitgolfb301 (41086) 2014-08-03 18:03
Hi Ciao dear Luciano, how are you?
Very typical Summer image at all! Great moment you did catch. The best framework and composition via sharp / clear presnetation is so marvelous as usual.
All the best and have a good start of a new week!
Takero from so hot Tokyo
papagolf21 (99860) 2014-08-04 0:19
Bonjour, cher Luciano,
Ce saut de l'ange est remarquable et il attire les regards de convoitise des amis à proximité.
Très belle réussite.
parvatibb (1387) 2014-08-04 2:09
Great timing! I would like to dive in a cool water but not in a rocky pool:)
adramad (44926) 2014-08-04 4:06
Spectacular picture, great reflexes to capture the moment, the boy seems to fly through the air with arms outstretched, appears to have a good technical and style, but such jumps are at great risk for people.
Very nice this rocky outcrop, with the seabed.
Magnificent range of very natural colors.
Also good brightness and sharpness.
Have a good start to the week.
All the best.
jcpix (13914) 2014-08-05 17:14
Boy oh boy, if there's ever a title that fits the imagery to perfection...this is right up there! Suspended in flight, your timing is absolutely spot on to take in this moment and anticipation of free fall. This guy sure has more nerves than myself, I only hope he landed safely...if not, I'm sure his friends had a good laugh at his expense. :) Fun and exciting imagery, you have a great sense to capture the emotion and drama. Bravo! Enjoy the new day. Take it easy.
ChrisJ (112461) 2014-08-06 2:03
I hope he manages to avoid a painful belly-flop or worse! Good decisive moment shot with excellent sharpness and superb framing and composition. Looks dangerous as the water is sevral metres out from the rock ledge. Quite apart from the height. Have a nice weekend!
photoray (13981) 2014-08-06 7:47
Flying indeed. Excellent stop-action view of the diver in mid air high above the water and flying out from the craggy cliff. It looks like the others are impressed also.
Thanks for sharing,
Alco (7337) 2014-08-06 20:01
Very nice picture of that diver in action. You captured the diver at the perfect moment. Very sharp picture and beautiful colors. Very well done. TFS.
Have a nice day.
mvdisco (17794) 2014-08-07 7:06
Jolie prise de vue d'action de ce jeune plongeur ,
Photo prise au bon moment..et magnififques couleurs,
belle netteté et bel endroit...
nikkitta (17066) 2014-08-07 14:07
More than 100 point for an excellent and creative capture, like the Summer ambiance and the.... flying boy
Well done, at the right time
boa (7375) 2014-08-08 0:15
wow, what a shot of this young daredevil! I would never do this trick, especially not since the bottom is low, crazy! Captured in a very good moment, perfect sharp and attractive light&colors, Well done!
Have a nice day/
Tue (35420) 2014-08-08 11:08
Impeccable timing for this photo with the children looking at their flying friend in admiration. The warm sunlight and colours are very nice too.
adores (45029) 2014-08-08 16:14
The best moment for sure! You captured him perfectly, seems he's flying while the others keep watching. Great capture!
Selmik (3366) 2014-08-08 20:26
Great timing and execution of this photograph. Light, angle, colors, details are playing perfectly and as a result we see this beautiful photograph.
CLODO (33998) 2014-08-10 1:43
Il est suspendu dans le ciel comme un ange et on attend avec les autres baigneurs qu'il plonge dans l'eau. Bravo pour l'instant décisif, mais comme c'est une photo, il est figé dans les airs à tout jamais!!
NorthernLight (2383) 2014-08-10 7:55
have you found there bird people?
Congratulations! A great snapshot. Sharp, nice colors and generally a really good picture!
Greetings from the North
clic (16885) 2014-08-10 9:35
There are two analogies in this superb take: Many aircraft enthusiasts practice 'planespotting', taking pictures at takeoff or touchdown of those impressive huge birds, camera pointed upwards; but for a more romantic allusion, I rather see a father bird teaching the ABC of an elegant flight to the youngs below!
Au revoir, Luciano.
Angshu (56750) 2014-08-13 3:23
The most important thing in such shots is the timing, and here you have done that with perfection...The man is in full flight, almost appearing to be a soaring eagle, as he is watched in awe by the kids who must be his 'followers'. The wow factor is all over...Lovely work!
alvaraalto (10796) 2014-08-14 7:11
Just the right moment.
A few tenth of a second later the boy is falling down to the water, but now he seems in the air for a successful flight to the moon.
dcole (281) 2014-08-15 15:11
Awesome decisive moment image! What a great catch!
mkamionka (35964) 2014-08-20 3:23
great action photo. Very well captured and so sharp.
This reminded me about my colleague from work, he is from Algeria and he told me in the area where he lives jumping like this is quite popular. He told me there were two deaths in his family of young boys who have hit the rocks...
mcmtanyel (21810) 2014-08-22 21:47
I trust that the fellow had enough forward momentum, otherwise he looks as though he'll crash into the rocks. An excellent catch, TFS!
worldcitizen (8472) 2014-09-28 16:16
Wow! These boys seem to have no fear of jumping off these rocks. They are not as high as some others that I've seen, but it still looks a bit dangerous. You did a great job freezing the flying jumper in the air. Hopefully nobody does get hurt at this spot. It looks like a place that the boys really enjoy.
wolf38 (31296) 2014-10-07 23:34
Hello Luciano. Young cliff jumper. A great and absolutely worth seeing photo. You've photographed in the ideal moment. In addition, very good technical quality.
Best rgds, Wolfgang.
Hanssie (10790) 2014-10-26 3:11
Nice title for a great action ! !
sami48 (86) 2015-06-17 8:08
I am jelouse of you! why? because you when the right time is! you manage and control the camera very well...
It still is a big challenge for me ...
