A man walking on the wall of Akko. There are those small (1m) gaps in the wall all the way across. I'm sure this could've worked better if I had caught him jumping one of them but this was just a snapshot I happened to notice with no time to plan and by the time I looked at the LCD the man was already infront of the gap.

I liked the composititon very much..and that he has tiny bits of light on him and not a total silhouette..I might have tried to increase light on the sky but then I like the strong bw feeling and probably I am always doing the same yet..

Very nice composition. Very symbolic shot also.
would have been nice if indeed you had caught him jumping over the gap but even with this shot, we can fee a hesitation before jumping, which is also intresting.
The only thing that could maybe be touched up a little is the little halo along the wallé

I like this sillouette. You can just anticipate the man's leap across the "gap." He's even looking at it. Not much in tones, but you don't need it. Good shot!

Cool. Very simple, but very, very nice. A very classical -anytime in history- feel. Well done man!

Simple and perfect.

It's as simple as a metaphysical question ?????
You could find hundreds of interpretations to this shot, it's so classical it's a stock photo breed... I'm sure many consultant agencies would be ready to pay to illustrate their business with your image (btw, what are they actually doing?).
Very well done!

So simple and so strong. Sometimes all you need is a snapshot of a simple subject.
You got yourself a classic here.
