Jump!

This weeks assignment over at DPS is “Jump.”  Yesterday Sydney and I headed out to the horse pasture and I snapped a few pics… but I’m not happy with any of them.  I waited until around 4 o’clock when I knew the sun would be in the right spot but things just didn’t work out. 

Here’s Sydney jumping from one of the fences.  The sky is way blown out and Sydney looks like she’s jumping “up” rather than down… and do her feet really look like they are in the air?

Sydney threw some sticks for Blue but do you know how hard it is to photograph a jumping Blue Heeler dog??  This shot was about the best I could do.  He sort of looks like he’s walking on his back legs and I think it’s because he just doesn’t jump near as high as he used to… most likely because he’s packed on a whole lotta weight since he was neutered!

So now we’re on the hunt for a “jump” shot… and I don’t have a clue what to do.  Anyone want to throw out a few suggestions?  If all else fails I will go with one of the above shots so please feel free to comment on which one and the most votes wins. :)

UPDATE:

Dallas dropped in for a quick visit today so I got her on the trampoline and took a few pics.  I’m liking this picture! :)

I see your point about how they turned out ... but I'd probably vote for the one of Sydney. She is jumping and off the ground, after all. :)

Should have been here last weekend. We had 190 people jump for the annual naked bungee jump Now that would have made for good photo jumps. ab
