Hi Daniel
Fantastic shot. Wonderful DOF and beautiful colours. Its almost as though your friend can nearly touch the clouds. Rather him than me standing there and I just hope you didn't keep him waiting there too long!!!
Lovely shot.

Man, I would be scared out of my mind to make that pose.

Im scared just looking at this picture!

Very cool shot! Im not quite sure what hes trying to do with his hand gestures there, but im too focused on the height here to care :)

Excellent capture,
TFS, -zeb

Superbe photo, mais je ne la regarde pas trop longtemps,elle me donne le vertige. Très réussi. Bravo Gilles

Hi Daniel,

Hope he's OK after shooting this picture . . It's a superb action shot . . Highly courageous person . .
I believe you are standing at the edge of this rock as well . .
Too risky for this kind of shot . . but that is the value comes in . .
Great shot . . Please be careful . .
I've gone through your gallery . . you have beautiful pictures . . Well done my friend . .

Buna, Daniel,
Superba poza, dar mi se face rau privind-o,sper ca e un trucaj...sau nu?

Spectacular shot indeed. Easy to reach this position, but to leave...? Greetings both for your shot and his courage.

OH MY WORDDDD! Wow, Daniel, it just scares the dickens out of me just looking at it! Wow, that's not a very good way to 'go out of the way' for a shot...too much.

Good color, original composition. TFS

Very dangerous pose Daniel and very well mastered DOF. I would try to adjust curves to pop up the colours. TFS

Nice shot. Even though your friend is the main element, I'm amazed at the clarity of the atmosphere in the background. The two combined make a good photo.

Hi Daniel, Very good photo full of energy and fun as well as such a spectacular backdrop. It is well cropped so our imagination is at work exactly how much space is below your friend, and therefore how brave he actually is. TFS. Murray.

Hi Daniel,

That's cool shot! Very nice view.... Good pov.
