The inclusion of yourself in the picture breaks the chaos that is the trees/leaves background. Nice shot.

I see that you use the sony cybershot.. just wondering your thoughts on the camera? From your photos, it looks like a nice one.

Wow. Stunning. The almost painfully determind look on your face radiates such strenght and power that I believe you might never fall. The sunbeams shining through the amazingly beautiful foliage shows hope.
But still, even if some things are harder to let go, the time will come when you don't have an option anymore, and all you can hope for then, is that someone is waiting below. Waiting to catch you. And in this case, I'm certain that someone are. :heart:

ok... you did it again, this shot is so emotional, you look like you're near the point where your strength will abandone you and you'll have to fall, but your expression sais a lot more, you're not leaving a branch, it's more like you're saying goodbye to someone, you're sad 'cause you'll fall, but the problem is not falling by itself, it's more like falling alone.

as usual I ramble, forgive me, but I always feel your shots in someway related to the situations I'm leaving and for this reason (and for a lot more), I really admire your works and your talent :)

This piece is incredible. I've looked over many of your works, and the lengths you go to just to get a picture is amazing. I only wish i had this much creativity to even come up with the ideas in the first place. There is just so much emotion in this. i don't know what it is, but looking over your work, something kept drawing me back to this. i am seriously lost for words. i want to say something, but i don't know what. i've looked over many works on DA and there's just something about this one i love. congrats on an excellent piece of photography. i love how it's so natural... :D
