A follow-on from my last posting. A jumper leaps off one of the middle platforms during the 'naghol' or land-diving during the Yam festival on Pentecost Island in Vanuatu. Taken with a Nikon F-401 on Fujichrome ASA200 slide film.

Quite special picture series! This middle one shows the actual leap and certainly deserves to be noted. And looks certainly more dangerous than modern bungee jumping. Silhouette like result is actually quite impressive, although I guess that it looked rather different on bare eyes. Framing and timing are excellent.

this picture is amazing, really unique in its theme, graphism and timing. I like very much how you captured the diver at this critical moment of his dive. The juxtaposition with the other figure is very intriguing. I love the graphism and mystery of the silhouetted scene as well as the dynamism of all these bold diagonals. Superb work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,
