      Wow!!! This is very cool! How'd you do this?? It looks like you're way up in the sky.

      Thanks everyone for the comments.

      @ bored-now: I should tag this 'crotchshot' and watch my views soar...should, but I won't. :-)

      Thanks, Mare. It looks like I'm way up in the sky because I AM way up in the sky. Perhaps you weren't aware that I can fly. Hannah can too! Sorry, I'm in the middle of watching Heroes - Season 1 on DVD and having delusions of grandeur.

      Seriously though. No tricks here. This is actually completely untouched. Straight out of the camera (EDIT 04/01/08 -- I did get around to replacing the untouched version with one with a bit of dust removed and brightened up, just a bit). I set up the camera on a tripod pointed straight up at the sky. F/16 -- 1/400 -- manual focus -- 5 second delay -- count -- jump. I was jumping off our back deck over the tripod on the ground, so that's where the apparent height comes from. Took me a few tries to get the timing right, but once I got this one, I closed up shop and got back inside (out of the ~11-degree weather). Brrrrr.

      This is a great shot, Jeremy. I love the contrast between you and the bright blue sky. I'm even more impressed after reading you took this photo in 11 degree temps... too cold for me! :)

      Cool concept for a self portrait, and with the color challenge. Well done.

      Nicely lit and a cool perspective. The blue sky and clouds are really nice!
