Leap of Faith.

Comments made by the photographer

Submitter's name: Arnab Banerjee.
Title: Leap of Faith.
Gear used: OM-2000 + Zuiko 135mm f/2.8.
Diaphragm: f8.
Shutter speed: 1/250.
Film used: Fuji Sensia 100 ASA.
Technical information: Quick grab shot without much time to think as the subject is accelerating towards the camera @ 9.8 m/sec2.
Subject information: This picture was taken at Hogenakkal Falls in Tamil Nadu, India. I am sitting in a coracle, in the middle of the river Cauvery. The river flows through a gorge at this place. Local kids dive from the cliff tops into the river below for fun as well as a bit of cash from tourists. One of them took the plunge and gave me the idea for this shot. I was ready when the next kid jumped and got this shot.

If one didn't know better it almost looks like the kid was Photoshopped in there; cool effect.
