One of my favourite action sports photo’s of all time. In my opinion it should’ve won the Red Bull Illume 2010 contest but hey… all the photos on there could’ve won.
The cliff diving photo was taken around 4pm, so the light was tricky to work with, but golden. I love the way the shot has an HDR look that’s done perfectly! Not being overdone at all, which usually ends up giving a photo a bit of a ‘fake’ look, which I tend to hate. Marcel states:
It was 4pm and I shot against the sun. Because of the bad light conditions I decided to shoot in HDR to get more information in the picture. In order to avoid the typical HDR look, I manually put the five single exposures together.
