You definitely chose a tricky subject there, Ian; turned out well, all things considered, though. Can you imagine trying to capture those with a slower AF body and/or lens?
Thanks much Eric, yup very tricky. The quick snap focus of the 1D-X was absolutely necessary for this job. And this was with a 2xIII teleconverter, resulting in the higher ISO. All in all, they came out pretty good.

Now that's pretty cool Ian. Great shooting to get the inflight shots.
Thanks Terry, yea, there were LOTS of splash shots before I finally caught up with one. It was fun though, with big splashes all across my 180+ degrees of viewing angle, and trying to catch up with them. I think this guy was a multiple jumper, which was how I caught him (actually her, I think).
