Woody Taking a Dive...

By NDODS    
Woody hasn't like me been feeling up to much lately, however yesterday morning he decided that he would venture out. When he noticed that all the other wooden heads were having so much fun in and out of the pool he decided that he would like to have a go on the high diving board. He assured me that he knew exactly the right techniques down to the finest detail. So off he popped, after approximately 20 attempts I finally managed to capture him making a right old splash. Hope you like.

I'd have docked him a couple of points, Nathan, his entry is a bit off line and his feet aren't pointed GrinGrin.

I love the lens flare! The splash is good, the flare is fantastic.
I hope Woody has recovered now. Is he aware of standard models' rates of pay? It's double for getting wet.
