They stood for several minutes building up their courage, then took the leap.
Too bad the photo didn't capture the screams.
I like their different expressions on the way down.
EDIT: Should have titled Girlfriends #15.

As this is in the critique area.... first thing is your horizon is off, with so many vertical lines, it detracts from the image. I would start there.

Its by knowing and mastering all the rules that you learn which ones you can break.

Qbx, some great expressions there.
As others have stated, horizon first and foremost, and then those shadows are what makes it.

I took the liberty of "cleaning" up the image after the horizon adjustment, unfortunately had to lose the top girl due to
body parts cut.

Hope you don't mind - but here is a quick edit that may or may not enhance the "Art".

The shadows are art!

The lower shadow looks like a carrot. Middle shadow looks like a Troll doll. Top shadow is Popeye.

Time to go back on my meds ;-)a


When you see my camera gear you'll think I'm a pro.
When you see my photos you'll know that I'm not.

I'm usually quick to point this out to others. It's funny how some subjects are so distracting that the basics are overlooked.
Thanks for catching the tilt. I'll correct it.

I don't mind at all. Thanks for the edits.

Larry, just Photoshop CS5. It was a quick edit, there are imperfections which would disappear if I took more care and time.

Thanks. I suppose I should upgrade from Lightroom.

I use both. Lightroom is good as a image catalog manager and pretty good for certain kinds of edits; but Photoshop is the big dog for sophisticated editing and it can be linked to launch from Lightroom and automatically open an image for editing. When saved, the edits appear in Lightroom.
