    Panos,

    Nice shots. Beautiful blue water.

    These look a tad dark on my screen. Thanks for sharing. Those guys are brave souls. :>))

    Cheers

    Brave souls, tough exposure decision

    Tough backlighting situation, Panos. You nailed the water's exposure levels, but it was at the expense of darkened faces. If you would've increased the EV way up to get the faces right, the water would've been pure white, with no detail. When I saw the 1st guy hanging upside down, I thought it was actually PS'd.

    Thanks Gale. "A tad dark..." hmmm... maube it's my laptop's screen...
    I was one of the "Brave Souls" out there, but -as usual- there was noone to take any photos of me :cry:


    Thanks Steve, indeed a very tough backlighting situation :( The Sun didn't help at all. Next time I'll try a different angle. :roll:

    Panos,

    Great shots. I think you did pretty well with the exposures. Now you just need to find someone that will take a few shots with you in the harness.... :wink:

    Looks like great fun.

  9. If it ain't I'll quit it :D Daniel, there is a kind of chemical substance in our bodies called adrenaline... well when I was ...served I thought it was a chocolate cake and I had the whole thing :wink:

    Wait till you find out my "other" favorite sports... :shock:

    Next thing I'm planning are 5000ft aerials from baloon and then a sky-dive... :roll:
     
  10. Why NOT :shock: Did I mention the two wonderful, huge, salt-lakes, full of flamingos, GBHs and any other bird you like... :roll:

    Jeez Panos, that's a tempting offer. Now if I can just get my boss to let me off for a couple of weeks.... :?

    Great stuff. :wink:

    Frank
     
  12. Nice captures Panos, but also dark on my end. If frank goes on that, I need to be there to shoot it. Would be the strangest flying object I ever shot. :lol:
     
  13. You'll need only 4 days to learn the basics :wink: and a week to practice and start your free-style... :D
     
  14. What :?: :shock: Flew :!: on a kite :?: :shock: :!:
    Well, it's the easiest thing to learn... Lambros is in lesson 3... :wink:

    Come along with Gale and Frank, and I will arrange with RR for a new kind of "bird"shooting... :D
