Very impressive. I love the shot and I am stoked to hear how you made it. Nice composition and use of subject matter. Do you have any other shots I can see?

Very very good!
No shoes

I like it. I also like all the technical detail you have given! What intrigues me is no shoes!!
Thanks for the compliments

It's funny, I didn't even recall this barefoot thing until Gadgetman mentioned it. It was just an idea for fun but I have to admit it's a way for provoking people to ask funny things as well. I'm amazed that there aren't more skydiving pics in this round. The theme couldn't be tailored much better.

For Seth; I do not have a web site as I'm a bit lazy of promoting myself. Skydiving photography is a great hobby for me and I want to keep it like that. In case you are really interested, I'll be happy to email you a small selection of my work.

Thanks for voting my pic

I love the POV of the shot. The composition is amazing in this shot. Do you Video any of your Dives?? Looking for footage... No pun intended. LOL... Great work here...

This shot alone is fantastic... the sense of both speed and the rush of fall, adrenaline and excitement says it all. The colours, expression and clarity further enhance the theme of "speed" Nice one... you have earnt my vote also.
Some trivia
By jussilaine on Monday, 11 June 2007 2:14 PM
By the way, about the speed the skydivers are travelling through the sky in the picture; it's something around 250 kmh or more, consisting both vertical and horizontal components of speed
By ttaalto on Monday, 11 June 2007 2:34 PM
This is just an outstanding angle for picture taking.
You've got my vote Jussi.

Stunning. The feet add a nice touch, too! Good luck.

Bro, I really like the bright colors of your suit - reminds me of the papukaija, whatever. However, I am SO dissapointed you did not paint your toenails for this one, remember the bright green you had?
Love you anyways you big papa. - Irja

Some shots of Real Life look much better than any can master with Photoshop.
By juliikal on Friday, 15 June 2007 9:38 AM
Best skydiving picture I've ever seen...
By side on Friday, 15 June 2007 11:33 AM
I agree with you guys that this is a nice photo, but this is only a free fall sky driving, It's should have been a radical shot to make it seed demon shot.
By ivebjorn1 on Saturday, 16 June 2007 7:10 PM
speed= yes, demon= no
Sky is the limit
By sookie on Monday, 18 June 2007 11:07 AM
Yap a free fall sky diving. A nose dive could have been speed demon.
By Watcher on Tuesday, 19 June 2007 4:42 AM
Obviously an elaborate fake. Unfortunate attempt to cheat.
By jussilaine on Tuesday, 19 June 2007 5:06 PM
If someone wants to make any kind of accusations, the least I can ask is that this person uses his/her real name. Otherwise there is no point to reply. On the other hand, I can take the Watcher's comment as a big compliment. It's not too common to be able to fool someone with real photograph. This is ridiculous. Jussi Laine, Imatra, Finland

great photo but would have been better as you said in a self portrait competition. still wicked shot!
Still the best.
By Ranniie on Thursday, 21 June 2007 4:52 AM
This is still the public's choice which means it's a great photo. The best public choice award.
