Ola, Costello! This is a winner! I bet you are going to get a lot of appraisal for this picture, and specially from boys. Une vraie force de la Nature, cette belle plante blonde et pleine de grace.

This is impressive, the way she performs a seemingly dangerous trick with a smiling face. Well captured.

Interesting action picture.
It's strange to me that this lady seems completely immobile, while the rest seems moving. I don't really know how to express what I'm feeling for this one, even though I like it somehow. What kind of PP have you made here ?

Very good - the POV is very effective, and the motion blur is good too. I really like busker/street performer images, they're a lot of fun & a good subject.

Very very nice photo. You should be named Cultural Ambassador for Newfoundland. Your photos bring me so much information on your region. I'm getting pretty eager to go there and your photos really make me take that decision.

Perfect moment capture.
Thanks for share.

Very nice, Jim! Your POV is excellent and you have just enough motion blur to still give us a clear view of the subject.

A lovely exciting composition, you have caught the moment well, the slightly out of focus effect you got through shooting it in f 5.6 lends itself to this picture yet still getting a sharp clear face on the performer, we need to see more action shots from you Jim, well done.
