The High Flyer

This is a picture I took again in Norway skiing, taking a photo of  my boyfriends brother doing a ski jump.  In Sport mode on my camera I attempted to capture, height, strength,  focus and the magnificent background. 

Although the resolution of the background in places is not clear , I feel the beauty and  characteristics of the place we skied have been captured well, especially because this was not the main attraction of the photo.   As we look at the picture, the focal point is the skier, who looks strong and holds his position perfectly. This allowed me as the photographer to create the right angle and shot from where I was standing. Thus the  picture  resonates  elegance , skill and  lift, which is what I wanted to achieve.

Overall the picture speaks out to me and is one of my favourite captures.
