in this situation a level horizon doesn't matter. Its a stronger image this way. Thanks for the comment.

btw, I edited the pic to remove an inecessary gear bag by the shadow. Think its much stronger now, the paraglider shape is better reinforced. Comments??

He looks like a visitor from a much smaller planet, not used to Earth's crushing gravity. He has an elaborate support system of two large balloons, and it always seems to him that he is walking uphill.

Impressive image. I like it. Lots of room to project into that body posture with strings. I'd like more contrast in the clouds, but I'm also using a crummy monitor at the moment, so it may be there but I can't see it.

Panos, sorry I didn't reply sooner. Like every photog in Hawaii, I shoot lots and lots of color but there are times you just want to go after elemental shape and contrast in a shot.

Beeze, great scenerio Brah!

David, thanks for the comments as well. There is quite a lot of contrast in the clouds actually. Maybe just a monitor thing.

Fred, glad you liked the 'conversion' but I was thinking and shooting intentional B&W this day. I believe you visualize differently when shooting B&W. I was shooting my 12-24DX with a polorizer. That combo creates pretty contrasty images that scream out B&W especially for cloud formations. I also had the S2 set up to preview in B&W and so never really looked at the color versions in the camera or converter.
