    Good timing.
    The background is a bit distracting, though. Have you tried burning it out?
  • David de Groot said:
    Indeed :)
    I did give it a whack with a burnt stick but didn't want to go too far lest the black clad floating ninja dissolve into the background.
    I agree though, the background is nowhere near ideal - alas the interior of the building was too small to get a decent natural light fall off and too ugly to leave alone...

    I think the backround is cool. I'd rather say that the subject lacks separation. I would suggest trying a flash behind the subject for rim light next time. Might be hard to position, but ninjas don't get tired of jumping a few more times to get it right, do they?

    Hahaha...this is just the coolest and nice timing too. (o^^o)
  • David de Groot said:
    Ah yes, see there's a tale there... there was indeed a flash behind for rim light, but it was optically triggered and with several people firing at once, I didn't manage to get a decent shot with the subject in the right spot and the rim light firing for me.
    Thanks Voodoo :) 'twas fun!
    Only thing better would have been crossed legs eh Margot ? (might have been asking a bit much though)
