Hi everybody,

Yesterdag I went to a familyday. Together we were with 88 persons! (yes I know...It's a big family :-)) We went to a childrens farm with a lot of signs 'only childeren below 9 years old allowed'.
Finaly we found a trampoline with no sign!!!

I know this photo isn't high quality, but I had a lot of fun taking it.
I tried to catch a lot of sky with a touch of ground.
I played a bit with clarify and neat image and this is the result.
Hopefully my photo is next to Alex's and he didn't kick me of TL.

Have a nice day!

Hi Moon,
The idea is great, good composition in a square frame. Thechnically: a bit too much contrast creating OE in the white clouds. Colours are fine. You can't help Alex expression is a tad weird though :-) (I think you still love him)
Great posting!

Hi Simone,

Nice work!Like your idea,maybe you can erase de trees to create a big ilusion with the sky and Alex.

Sorry my english

Hi, Simone!

Very kind and funny shot! Superb!


Terrific shot Simone
The angle from which the photo was taken is great.
I love the look of the image.

Such a wild and fun idea with great results Simone.
Excellent freeze of this suspension.
The sky is wonderful backdrop for this.
A sweet and humorous tribute!

Hello simone,
Beautiful action effect,very good contrast,clear picture and beautiful frameworks.Amanzing view.

Hi Simone,
I just wonder how many takes your subject has to do to get this shot ... must have been tiring :) Well timed shot ... great POV. Well captured and presented. Well done! tfs

Hi Simone;
This is really a great shot catching the action in a very funny frame...I don't think that quality matters as much as a reaction on the viewer.... this one made me smile... thanks Simone....Roman:0)

Awesome capture! Love the angle and composition. Nicely done!

Hi Simone,
Very good action picture. I like this photo a lot but I admit I prefer the model in Alex's one. ;)
Have a nice day, Michel

Thisphoto has a lot of qualities. You planned and prepared well for taking it. Execution was well done with good use of light, not under-exposing the subject.
PS work on the sky is also good.

hello Simone,
Nice experimentation and good result with the uses to elastic springboards.
great mood!!!compliments

best sERGIO

HI Simone
The bit of trees helps to give the illusion that he did an extremely hight jump. Its a great action shot. Obviously having a lot of fun at playing with martial arts.

Very expressive photo.
Nice colours and sharpness

Hi Simone ,
interesting shot and nice idea!

hahaha... leuk gedaan!! Ziet er heftig uit!! Alleen een beetje te veel pp, naar mijn idee. Wel grappig dat Alex die vingers zo over elkaar heeft!

Hallo Somone.
Very good action shot of this Kong Fu fighter.
Hopefully he didn't hit the camera, haha
Good work.
Groeten van Jan

A good pose and great composition although tree tops in the bottom of the frame are a little distracting.
Thanks for sharing

The important thing Simone is how you feel about it. =) I think it's a great image. It's fun! I like the PP too. Maybe too much for others but for me. Love it!

Enjoy clicking!


Hi Simone,
That's a very good action photo, perfect timing, well captured moment. I think noise reduction would be a useful step to apply for this photo, but anyway, it's great. TFS

Hi Simone..this is a cute shot..well composed with nice sharpness...nicely done.


:)))) Great posting on your 9 month anniversary!
Congratulations to the both of you!
Simone, to be honest with you, I prefer Alex's posting because... YOU'RE GORGEOUS, GIRL! Alex must be a lucky guy! He's not too bad himself but he's not my type really...I'm more family oriented myself, and I have at home my kind of guys. :)You had the most wonderful and crazy idea, though, by posting these shots, at the same time, but I guess that's what people in love do! Crazy stuff! :)
Best regards and tfs,
p.s. Thank you!

hello Simone,

beautiful catch.. funny shot but i like it.. i have yet to capture something like this.. very lovely.. nice one you got here.. tfs this lovely image.. well done.

regards, terry

Hi Simone

Very good shot, the movement is great.
This man looks like a super heros!
Congratulation Simone!

Joh Simone,

Alex heeft je er fantastisch opgezet, je bent net een fotomodel.
Neat Image is altijd prettig - zeker op donkere dagen foto's - en ik persoonlijk vind het effect leuk. Door net een beetje groen te tonen lijkt het nog eens extra hoog.
Wat is hij hier - een ninja?
Ik heb het in de gallery gemist stond hij daar links van je?

Hi Simone...
Amazing my friend..!
Absolutely fantastic shot.
Well done.
Best regards,

Nice work Simone, great action capture.
Regards Mark :)

Brilliant photo, Simone. You're right, not the highest of quality, but the lines around the boy's body make it almost look like you green-screened it! Fantastic art work is seen throughout this final image. Very cool. Thanks for sharing. -Kelly

That a photo is fun. A very good timing.

Una gran captura, felicidades :)

Het ziet er zeker gevaarlijk uit. Vast ook wel gevaarlijker dan het is. Maar de foto is leuk om te zien.. de bewerking kan ietsje beter.. al met al een geweldig leuk plaatje
