Pink suspension

Whilst somehow I would have liked more light on the foot on the left I still like the natural feel to this shot, okay my DOF was too shallow but you'd be upset if I didn't post it. Sorry I'm giving excuses for this one but hey I really don't care. I love this shot.

My day: Firstly well done Arsenal for the win, though I was a bit sickened by the play of the red devils can't believe that we lost again at a time like this. I planned to go shooting at the Mayors Thames festival, however I spent the whole day in traffic listening to the football match on SmoothFM!

I like it. The DOF is ok in my opinion.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Travis.

cool shot jide. i need some of those levitation shoes but probably wouldn't look as good with my hairy legs.
Jide Alakija: LMAO! I'm sure it would look as interesting if composed properly.

This is a cool shot, although there is just something a little unsettling about it for me.
Jide Alakija: Sigh! I don't know why but I so value your comments in particular. I think the as mentioned it looks like there is a hanging taking place.

Nice shot. Looking at this pic, I kinda feel like I'm about to land on my feet or something.
hey jide,

i really like the feeling of motion and falling that this shot conveys. terrific colors. however, the angle of the feet seems a bit odd. the front of the feet seem too short or something.
Well done Arsenal..you can say that again..

Great shot, nothing wrong with the DOF..Im sure it took you a few tries to get this right..

YES!!!!...arsenal kicked butt and that's what matters, u know for all their talk i was actually afraid man u would come through this time...didnt know what i was thinking....
Thames Festival wasn't that big a deal, you didn't miss much..i dont know how great the evening show on SUnday would've been though...
right, getting completely carried away, the shot - the title hepls out on this one and really does give a feeling of suspended animation....8.5/10
very very nice Jide, is she supergirl? LOL

I don't know if this is an incite into my sick mind but my immediate thought was that someone had hung themselves. Then after a couple of seconds I thought of David Blaine doing that levitation trick. Whatever it is, it's full of interest.

This shot I really like. Put a smile on my face first time I saw it. It is a fun shot. It should bring a smile to faces.
hahaha, I see that inspiration has come back, very original shot

Hey Jide, was your subject jumping or hanging by the arms from a branch or something, your shutter speed would suggest being fast enough to freeze it if it were a jump? Nice shot though either way. Mal
Jide Alakija: Yup you got it right. She's hanging on a branch.
Nice range of colors and lovely bokeh, great shot!
