A Fall from Grace by graemestevens

A Fall from Grace

At last, today's shot has arrived. Inspired by countless movies, books and a comment made on a photo by @kerosene...funny where it comes from.
Mega fav... Really well done!
April 23rd, 2016  
Immediate Fav! Too cool!
April 23rd, 2016  
Awesome... love this.
April 23rd, 2016  
@northy Thank you very much - I may need a large mop when I hit the bottom.
@mikegifford Thank you very much :)
@rosiekerr Thank you so much :)
April 23rd, 2016

April 23rd, 2016

@brigette Thank you very much :)
April 23rd, 2016  
v-cool.. fav
April 23rd, 2016  
Exceptional. Fantastic depth perception and image. Very, very well done..
April 23rd, 2016  
Have no idea how you do these cool shots - maybe you could come and 'do' a workshop in Te Kauwhata....
April 23rd, 2016  
Fabulous! Great processing! FAV!
April 23rd, 2016  
Super cool ! :)
April 23rd, 2016  
Great shot. I'd wish you a soft landing, but it doesn't look likely.
April 23rd, 2016  
Wow! So cool
April 23rd, 2016  
Very clever! Its a long way down there - won't be much left of you when you land!
April 23rd, 2016  
Such a cool photo, fav!
April 23rd, 2016  
Excellent composition! Thanks for the vertigo. ;-)
April 23rd, 2016  
great big Fav Graeme-awesome
April 23rd, 2016  
Holy Toledo, here comes ThatMan. Very impressive Graeme, and more than a tad clever. Definite fav.
April 23rd, 2016  
Excellent.
April 23rd, 2016  
And the fav goes to Graeme Stevens...
April 23rd, 2016  
Instant Fav! Brilliant processing! Fav! Did I say Fav?
April 23rd, 2016  
If I could fav this twice I would. Awesome image.
April 23rd, 2016  
very clever, how was the landing? fab shot. fav
April 23rd, 2016  
This is one of those images that demand some intelligent and thoughtful comment but the image image itself is so obviously complete and perfect in itself that it renders any comment superfluous. One might even guess that your recent absence was due to your spending time on a Photoshop workshop, there does appear to have been a sea-change in your processing skills. Well done Graeme... it's a pleasure and a privilege to Fav this.
April 23rd, 2016  
Oh, and the title is inspired!
April 23rd, 2016  
haha.....nice boots......
April 23rd, 2016  
Wowzers, nothing to say, just gobsmacked!
April 23rd, 2016  
Excellent shot. Hope you got a parachute.
April 23rd, 2016  
Super cool, fav
April 23rd, 2016  
@susale Thank you so much :)
@swillinbillyflynn I haven't so I may need a good mop...
@dibzgreasley I shall take that as a compliment ;)
@cutekitty I always wear good boots ;)
@vignouse Thank you so much. To be honest my recent absence was due to my annual "flip out" (lets call it that for the sake of propriety). There comes a time every now and then where I just don't function in anything approaching a straight line and have to shut myself away for the sake of all others. But rest assured I do appreciate your continued support.
@pusspup Hard...very hard ;)
@paul10 Thank you very much :)
@pamknowler Thank you very much, and yes you did ;)
@jack4john Thank you very much. I'd say more but whisky.
@mona65 Thank you very much :)
@golftragic Thank you very much - I may have had a moment (brief) of inspiration
@tracie8266 Thank you so much :)
@noko411 You're most welcome, and thank you ;)
@btwebb Thank you very much :)
@maggiemae I think you may be right, I might need a good mop...
@mzzhope Thank you very much :)
@gardencat I think my chances are minimal ;)
@hermann Thank you very much :)
@homeschoolmom Thank you very much :)
@alinz Well, if it's all expenses paid and Mrs S can come it...sure ;) All I know is that this one took far too long!
@jeffinvt Thank you very much, much appreciated :)
@moviegal1 Thank you so much, always appreciated :)
April 23rd, 2016  
well blow me down with a feather (it would actually be impossible to blow me over with turbine let alone a feather) you have over - I mean out done yourself
April 23rd, 2016  
Nicely done, but you could have left the doc's behind.
April 23rd, 2016  
@annied Thank you - it took far too long and all other house hold chores were neglected.
@gamelee I took all of them with me ;)
April 23rd, 2016  
@graemestevens phtttt! to household chores!
April 23rd, 2016  
Just awesome. That's all I've got, it's a bit hard to beat Richard's comment :)

Just Wow!! It's.....wow!

It's an awful long way down!
April 23rd, 2016  
awesome!
April 23rd, 2016  
Stupendous- hope you bounce! FAV!!!!!
April 23rd, 2016  
Gosh! I can't even see the remote control in your hand! Fav
April 23rd, 2016  
Yeeeahh! And not a hint of concern on your face. Respect. And a fav.

Brilliant.
April 24th, 2016  
@nickspicsnz Thank you very much :)
April 24th, 2016  
@graemestevens You're far too modest, mate.
April 24th, 2016  
April 24th, 2016  
Arriving just too late to fav this? Great work!
April 24th, 2016  
@domenicododaro You're never too late, and thank you very much :)
April 24th, 2016  
Good one Graeme
April 24th, 2016  
@jeneurell Thank you very much :)
April 24th, 2016  
I'm getting that scary feeling of falling just looking at this. At least I will have company on the way down!
April 24th, 2016  
Holy heck batman I have no clue as to how to create a masterpiece like this but I bloody love it! Following!
April 24th, 2016  
Wow Graham you have exceeded all expectations here......how you did this I have no idea! Sorry been lacking comments lately but still enjoying your photos!
April 24th, 2016  
Wow, brilliant
April 24th, 2016  
!!! So cool!!
April 24th, 2016  
Wow, brilliant!
April 24th, 2016  
Graeme this must be the ultimate in a selfie. It is impossible not to FAV it
April 24th, 2016  
and a follow, which means I'm following you two ways, through me and @pasttheirprime. And Kev has FAV from there. WIn WIn.
April 24th, 2016  
Bloody brilliant.
April 24th, 2016  
Wow
April 24th, 2016  
And what a trail you indeed are leaving on the way down - a brilliant one!!!!
April 24th, 2016  
As always, fabulous!
April 24th, 2016  
Wow this is awesome, love the processing, nice to always have a willing prop! :)
April 24th, 2016  
@dianen Thank you very much :)
@kerosene Thank you very much - I still haven't hit the bottom...
@je77rey Thank you very much :)
@deborah63 Thank you very much :))
@theboxmanreturns Thank you very much - the hard part was timing the jump just right ;)
@888rachel Thank you very much :)
@izzyromilly Thank you very much :)
@neatz Thanks very much :)
@happypat Thanks very much - it took far too long and all other chores and tasks were ignored...I may have been in trouble ;)
@hop2it Thanks very much - I had no idea either, which is probably why it took a lot longer than it should have!
@candidzen We can chat about the weather as we plummet...
April 24th, 2016  
@radiogirl Thanks very much - no one seems as willing as me...I've tried to find models before but they all seem to get shy when I mention fire, blood and falls from a great height....
April 24th, 2016  
Wow. Zer. Is. All
April 25th, 2016  
@pistache Thank you so much :)
April 25th, 2016  
completely effin' awesome. I especially like the way your jacket appears to be billowing from the effect of the wind on the way down.
April 25th, 2016  
@bill_fe Thank you very much - the jacket effect was sheer fluke I'm afraid, but I'll take it!
April 25th, 2016  
I am curious how you did do this Mr S?
April 25th, 2016  
commuting to work, are you?
April 25th, 2016  
@blueberry1222 It seemed like the cheapest option at the time...
@annied Would you believe that I'm sitting on the laundry basket with my feet in the air for the original shot and then I've used a "birds eye view" city shot as a background...
April 26th, 2016  
@graemestevens well that is impressive....your editing is excellent!
April 26th, 2016  
@annied I have my moment, quite pleased with this 'un
April 26th, 2016  
@annied And thank you, of course. Goes without saying. My mum raised me proper though, so I say it.
April 26th, 2016  
AMAZING work Mr S
April 28th, 2016
