Some entertainment in the Bahamas during my honeymoon.

Handheld shot at ISO 3200 with -1/3 EV at 200mm with 1/25 sec shutter.

That's awesome - especially given the light you had to work with. This may sound stupid but I feel like I am watching the DVD of this event when someone hit the pause button. Absolutely love it!

Thanks guys! I did have an awesome honeymoon. The Bahamas was very relaxing.

It is the angle but his neck is under the limbo bar, and I hope he shaved the chest before attempting.:)

Damn cool.. that's a very impressive stunt. He must have strong knees to support that much weight at that angle :p

What an outstanding shot! And at 1/25th, the guy must've been dead still for a second, it's so clear! The color of his skin is what jumps out at you too. I hope you took a lot more pics like this ... are you doing anything with them?

Awesome I love it. Looks HD!


The goal is not to change your subjects, but for the subject to change the photographer.
