A big effort behind this photo
« on: December 19, 2011, 05:50:08 PM »

A big effort behind this photo.. I had to climb/slide down 30 meters threw hard vegetation in rain and mud. Got scratches and burns from angry plants with thorns =)

It was worth it.  I love the dark green and black on the edges with the smooth white water.  Perfectly executed!

I am sure there were no tripod holes at the end of the slide :D Nice shot.

Yup... nicely done.  And remember, nobody cares HOW you got the image!  ;)

Right. Usually when I hear how hard it was to shoot something, the final image is pedestrian. In this case, your final image is superb. Very well done.

Yes, it was well worth it to us to have you suffer making it so we could enjoy your nice shot in the comfort of our homes.

Very nice!

I think a slightly different angle would improve things. Could you go back & re-shoot?

I'm sure that wouldn't be a problem... notice he didn't say how he got OUT?
Probably STILL down there! ;D

With respect to the piranhas at the end of the slide, I'd recommend wearing a stronger codpiece unless a career in light (very) music is on the cards. On the other hand, since so many nowadays sing through their noses, it might not matter so much...
