Rooftop Gymnastics... by almostAMAZING Rooftop Gymnastics... by almostAMAZING
On a beautiful rooftop somewhere in Europe, she practices her talents without a care in her World...

Edit: I have received a few comments on this being a photo manip but I assure you it's not. (Except for the border) This is the real shot as I took it from my hotel balcony in Switzerland.

Click here for "Roof Top Gymnastics EXPLAINED", a view of this area from a different angle... :D

The colors are fantastic! And I can honestly say I've never seen a picture like it.

Thank you so much! :D The day was unlike any I have ever encountered so the picture just kind of followed in line... I was just glad that when she started doing her cart wheels, that I had enough time to run in and get my camera all fired up... She stopped literally moments after I clicked the shutter... Whew!

Thanks again! :)

Alas the only photoshoping was the frame and a bit of saturation but the image is what lay before us as we sat in our Swiss hotel balcony... I ran for my camera when the girl came out and started doing her cartwheels... I just love it when the planets align and all is right in the world... :)

Thank you sooooo much for the wonderful comment... :D

For some reason this pic reminds me of Escher.

Great pic, the angle really makes it. Good colours too.

I can totally see that Escher quality now that you mention it... Sort of like that one where the water is running up hill and then falls back into itself... :nod: I just put a shot up in my scraps that shows where the shot was taken if your are interested... Um where did I put that silly [link] ... Ah, there it is... :D

Thanks for the great comment!!!

oh very nice, i love high contrast photographs...though i do not love digital cameras, and from the looks of that multicoloured grain, you use one..though i could be wrong.

Digital all the way... It's all I have so I do the best with that... :) I agree with you actually and try my darndest to simulate real photography (in most cases) but as you know, it's almost impossible...

Thank you soooo much for the kind comment, I really do appreciate it... :nod:

I totally agree with you on the Sims similarity... I just had an idea, maybe I should put that spinning diamond shaped thinger over her head, or feet in this case... hehehe... :rofl:

This reminds me of the Sims. It just looks like the way the characters look on the game, from the view to the distance. The colors are amazing too! Great job.

I can totally see that now that you mention it. Yeah, real life doesn't show this angle very often now does it?! I was lucky enough to have the top room in this hotel and that it had a nice big balcony, otherwise, I would have missed out on this opportunity...

Thanks so much ~SykotikKittin:!::!::!:

This is such a cool shot!
However did you get it?
It almost looks like rooftop Yoga, and I dig it!
I'd love to have a place like that to chill in the morning.
Great shot, and it made me smile. Made me think anythings possible.
That's a good thing for me..:giggle:

Well, I was on my hotel balcony enjoying some vino with friends in Lucerne, Switzerland last Spring when she just started practicing her cartwheels down below on her 4th story, grass covered roof... It was very surreal so I ran for the camera and got the shot!!! Here is a [link] to the hotel we stayed at just so you can get the setup... We had the top middle room so the rooftop in question is down and to the right in this picture... The hotel was up on the hill so we could look down on everyone...

And yes, :nod: anything is possible... :D

Thanks again. :)
