Flying Leap by Joe Kennedy

October 2021 - Flying Leap

About the Image(s)

The place where I volunteer ran a day of fun activities. One of the more popular areas was this inflated ball. The object was to get from one end to the other without falling off. This young man was using the flying leap technique. He did manage to hold on each time he landed on the red ball and then leapt to the next one. I knew this would be a popular and fun event, so I positioned myself in a spot where I could catch the action.

Well captured. Certainly gives the impression of forward movement and having fun. His face is a little dark and pink possibly from the light bouncing off the inflated ball but could do with slightly desaturating and lightening.   Posted: 10/06/2021 09:48:12

I like it but I feel it could be a little wider to show more detail of what he is jumping on too.   Posted: 10/14/2021 09:29:05

Definitely the moment to catch his jump and the right angle to get it. Face is maybe a touch dark with the shadow from the cap peak.   Posted: 10/15/2021 06:28:57

A good action shot. More negative space on the right hand side would be helpful. As previously mentioned, the face is too dark to see any detail.   Posted: 10/17/2021 08:16:32
