Great pic, mal. I hope to get time to play with such effects. Odd title. Makes me think 'jump, don't jump' ...
Great image, Mal. I find it kind of unsettling. (:o)
This is stark and rather ominous Mal. Good though

I like it and makes me think of the daydreams of childhood

Great picture in the masterful mal tradition.

Choices: shall I grow up, or remain young? We always choose the wrong one smile
Excellent bw shot!
Very filmic Mal ... so it must be good ;-)

...and a kid enjoying a sensation of flight!
Just some vaseline makes a lot of difference.

I like the composition of this photo - the silhouette of the child standing on a bridge while holding his/her hands at the railing and looking down into the depth - a state of betweenness, between above and below, abyss and heaven, danger and confidence, stability and escape... - the emptiness or openness of both parts - all is possible and indefinite - still grey, the colours will be coming later -we have to help the child to find his/her way and to do the right choices...- a picture of deep symbolism and artistic effects! A really wonderful photo, one of your best ones!
Really a wonderful image!! I love your work !

An ominous feel at first glance especially with the title, but then sometimes jumping head first into the unknown is the right choice, as much as staying right in place can be. Not everything needs to be taken literally, now is it?
One of the best tricks in the books and it always works! Nice job Mal!
Another great shot! Wonderful!

So many choices out there. They determine who we are. And even if we have somebody to whom we can talk to, in the end we have to make them on our own - all alone.
