This is pretty cool. You were certainly in an interesting position to take this photo. When I am looking at this, I keep turning my head 90 degrees, I can't help but think it might look better in portrait orientation. Good timing on the splash of the guy going into the water and good positioning of the other guy.

Great point of view and excellent quality and contrast of the B&W. The stream seemed to be pretty strong...

You do not cease to amaze me... this photo is marvellous, excellent composition, DoF, one of my favourites!

nice photo Ireland, great timing - someone just jumped into the watr. very good compo as well - everything is well positioned in the frame. this crooked horizon is a bit strange, maybe it would be better without it. good shot

thanks sandip for the workshop
aferrao (1145) 2005-07-18 12:54
The workshop might make the photo more "readable", but the moment is fantastic, seen by every point of view.
I like the splash in the water, the man on the boat looking back and the boy preparing to junp.
That's a nice composition!
gren4 (603) 2005-07-18 13:34
Interesting pov which works well in bw with thos strong shadows and curved rail.The boat adds an added element to the composition/perspective
jcandeli (40) 2005-07-18 13:51
Beautiful b&w fisheye photo! Great timing too. Love the composition and mood. I want one of these lenses now! :) great photo. JP
PS, I like your composition better then the workshop. makes me more dizzy!!
umbrellaphotos (1901) 2005-07-18 14:16
You captured a great scene here. I like the choice of black and white, I don't think it would be as powerful in color. Fabulous composition.
thanhdk (340) 2005-07-18 14:21
A good choice in B&W, well timing with such a slow speed, you might lucky :-)
sohrab (7439) 2005-07-18 15:15
this is a great shot!!!
but to be honest i'd like to see this in a square format.. something similar to hasselblad results..
the reason being that at the moment there is too much dead space on one side of the frame
i love such photographs in which a photograph is almost empty .. ALMOST..
i think even a speck of a boat would have made me happy about the right side..
but the main reason why i think a square crop would do this good is because you've got a beautiful curve in the stairs here.. and you have not managed to use this curve optimally..
the moment you manage to do so, the whole feel of the photograph changes entirely..
will give you a workshop to give you an idea of what i'm talking about..
my thoughts are verrrry subjective
take care :)
KevRyan (22956) 2005-07-18 15:28
I totally agree with what Sohrab has said and done in the workshop - I think that was a really inspired move on his part! BUT - before any of that I still thought you had a fantastic and creative image here BUT I really do like the effect of the square format - yours is more dizzy making though I agree!.
best wishes Kev

Stepan (27210) 2005-07-19 2:12
What a crazy pov !
It's a wonderful shot !
Well done and composed.
Morita (203) 2005-07-19 2:42
Fantastic POV! and moment. Excellent choice of lenses. Maiko
CycleEyes (24) 2005-07-19 3:19
Hi Ireland ! Great composition and exposure, the b/w choice is very oportune showing one beautiful image. Congratulations !
cgrindahl (6113) 2005-07-19 3:21
Wonderful photo Ireland! This is a very distinctive point of view. I note the workshops that have been proposed and I agree with Sohrab that a square format is preferrable to this landscape format. However, I prefer the orientation you've chosen with the poised diver at the left. Putting him at the bottom reduces tension, which seems an important ingredient to this photo. I have one question however. Is the curve we see in the railing at the left a product of this fisheye lens or does it exist in the real world?
Wonderful detail throughout and perfect capture of the first diver entering the water. Excellent work.

Fantastic perspective, absolutely unique shot beautifully executed. Steep, steep drop exaggerated by the extreme wide and the tilt. End re sult: a dream-like concoction, a one-in-a-milion shot. Superb! Francis
Nasonnguyen (841) 2005-07-19 4:42
Great capture at right moment bro!
alekpet (4663) 2005-07-19 5:58
Great moment caught as well as great composition. I post you a workshop different from previous ones.
sergecross (3438) 2005-07-19 12:29
Ireland, great idea to put the picture black and white. The boat and the water are very nice. It contains a good theme as i like and has a good point of view.
erdna (5711) 2005-07-20 20:04
Terrific shot, POV and composition. Is he hlding to a bridge railing or a stair railing?
jehronimo (95) 2005-08-02 16:16
I just have a look on your work and you are really a great pro!! Well done, this shot is totally amazing, I do not know where you are on the bridge (maybe flying over it ;-)...The "mise en scène" is really a great composition and I feel The Life in this pic..."Hop", this is one of my favorite pics'.
Thanks for sharing this moment....
crhieatt (5347) 2005-08-11 18:51
Another spectacular photo Ireland - brilliant use of your fisheye lens - perfect really!
awiefoong (181) 2005-08-15 2:54
very nice use of wide angle lens. excellent composition!
danby1 (3697) 2005-08-23 17:00
good capture ireland! well done, a good POV makes for an interesting shot, its hard to work out which way to look at this shot! what makes this picture for me is the man in the boat looking behind him to see what the splash was like WTF!!! lol well done great capture, the smoothness of the water is very nice, well done
garrbus (210) 2005-08-23 17:12
Cool photo - I think it's really special momnet when jumping man is almost under the water but we still can see his legs...impresive...
rhizomes (15343) 2005-09-06 7:11
Very nice picture !! The movements are well captured and we can appreciate the joy of playing (I suppose...) of those kids...
I like the unusal point of view which was certainly not easy...
pilpel-adom (3018) 2005-09-11 13:36
Great moment you captured here, Ireland! The B&W sure emphasize the movement and dynamic of the picture, combined with the tilt of the picture. Nice work!
jbweasle (9395) 2005-11-26 18:29
Hello Ireland, I get vertigo looking at this picture. It's a wonderful perspective - I feel like I'm about to jump myself. The light and tone on the guy's shoulders is incredible. Great composition.
I've just had a look at the workshops and I definitely think this angle is the best to give the feeling of being ready to fly...
Mistral (15402) 2005-12-22 14:31
Really a nice and dynamic picture.
I wonder how it was the pic rotate of 90° counterclockwise and cropped on the right side... even if the water effects are nice.
mmm.... just nit pick about a beautiful image.
bishansamaddar (868) 2006-03-14 9:58
really a decisive moment. love the curves too.
but i think i agree with sohrab that the square hasselblad format works really well.
hayzen (1017) 2006-06-15 23:59
simply a masterpiece. Bravo!
dushdushyant (60) 2014-08-25 3:15
