'Caution: danger of death'? I'm a bit worried about what's going on here — care to clarify?

Sure - this chap is a good 50ft from the sub station, on top of a grass bank. I asked him to bounce on a trampette [cloned out] and Bobs your uncle. The perspective is flattened as i shot it telephoto from a distance, at the bottom of the grass bank there is a 10ft fence, so we were in no danger. My concept was our subservience to power, was on a tangent! I rather like it, although i concede i may be alone with this one?
Cheers James

Ah, rightio. In that case, it's spectacularly effective, as it looks very much as if he's within a couple of feet of the equipment (hence my comment). I'm not sure the message quite comes across, as he doesn't look very subservient, to me, but it's very cleverly shot.

Yeah! thanks for that, you are right subservience is perhaps the wrong term. Maybe 'behold' or 'in awe' or something, i felt the nazarine symbolic pose would have aided a message? perhaps as a single image it's vague.
Thanks for the crit David.
James

Perhaps even that we dance to its tune? To me, it feels almost as if he's being levitated and drawn in by it, beyond his own control.

So I guess it is just the two of us, then. I reckon this one must have the highest comments-to-clicks ratio of anything outside the Critique Gallery! :-/
