Just a summer scene taken in Croatia, on the south coast of the Hvar island. The little harbour was called Zvala.
I was quite happy with the result of that composition.
Original picture, USM applied.

you catched a good moment :-)
The composition with the two people on the left fits good! If the sky was blue, it would be greater, but actually you dont need that because its already great.
The frame fits good too and good that we still see some stones on the ground. The reflection of the jumping guy is good too.
...all things considered: GREAT WORK!!

Very nice composition, nice shot at the right time. I hope the waters to be deep! :)

Well done keeping the horizon straight, and the format states the height and motion of the cliff and the diver. Right spot at the right time!
Did you go?

Très belle capture de ce plongeur en plein vol... Je me rapelle en avoir vu à Acapulco sauter de très haut mais ma batterie est tombée à plat mais heureusement, j'ai eu le temps de prendre une photo avant qu'ils sautent... Très belles couleurs aussi. Bravo!

Great action shot. Very well captured. I like the details on the tanned bodies waiting or their turn.
On a side note, did you ever go to the two clubs on the island? The one at the end of the harbor and the castle on top of the hill.

Hi Curioso. Here in Spain is about time to go to bed. Your picture was just what I needed to end the day and sleep happily. Thanks from Madrid and I wish you a thousand moments so full of live like this one.

A perfectly balanced composition Steven, the stillness of the waiting divers is nicely contrasted with the diver but also reflected by him being frozen in space (Time), you can almost feel the tension.

Nice moment and you were there! Well done, colours are nice but i think there´s too much dark on the picture, otherwise is fantastic!

Good composition Steven. I like the 2 people on the up-left corner, that gives a good perspective. The diver is also well catched, at the good time.

Nice one! Moving object caught in the flight; not so easy. Good composition and subject.

Nice Photo Steve;
You timed/composed it very well, waiting for the perfect time to capture the diver- mid air.
Good Color, good exposure- well cropped.
