Essi and Selam 1 by ~derJake The suggester writes, "I remember this shot taking away my breath for many seconds.. It is clear that he is standing on his knee, but there is still so much action and movement caught in this image. Perfectly executed. My thumbs are going...straight up!"

i think it would be nice if there was just a bit of blur, cause it looks a little too steady.

but that's just my opinion :D

I agree, if it was in the right spots, it would certainly help to convey a sense of motion!

One of the few photographs I've taken. I love the colourful contrasts throughout the picture, and even more do I appreciate the models' fitness to make this look so genuine.
