In spite of popular opinion this photo was NOT created with photoshop, as a matter of fact I was only using Picasa as an editing tool. This was an actual scene down by the harbor. I brought the umbrella as a prop and set it up to create this photo. Anyone with a camera could have stood right next to me and photograph the same picture if I would have let them... hehe. I dare you the viewer to look at it closely and figure out how it was done.... P.S.: Thank you for the spotlight JPG staff!!!

    When I was nine or ten years old I always saw six or seven flying fish, but in the middle of the ocean, during my trip from Sulawesi to Java, Indonesia. Lucky you to find it there. By the way, vote yeah for this photo :)

    First of all, great creative composition. Photoshopped. Who cares. We all love photoshop and lightroom. In my opinion it has made us all better at creating.
