There's a 5 tonne piece of art in a form of a roller by Carl Cheng. Some kids were jumping off of it and I got a chance to snap some pics in mid flight. Here's one of them that worked out quite well.

The neon stood out the most. The restaurant is brand new... too packed, couldn't get a seat, but at least I walked away with a neat shot of the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co building.

Yep you did.

The first shot does nothing for me, but I dig the compostion and tones of the second. Very nice.

thanks... i had a series of shots of the kid jumping, but none of those were as clear as that one. maybe i'll choose another one and work with it.

thanks, the second one is pretty close to what came out of the camera, I just had to remove an airplane in the sky and some scratches on the metal part of the building. :)

I personally wouldn't worry so much if the kid was blurry...actually, that might be cool. showing motion.

hmm... i took a consecutive series of this kid jumping, so i have the motions... i'll try to stitch that together. thanks for the suggestion.
