What an awesome POTD! It's amazing how absolutely everything in the image works together: the Y of concrete leads the eye into and diagonally across the image; the bench with its arrow-shaped end points right up the stem of the Y as if to punctuate both the design elements and the boy's movement; the jump is captured at precisely the right moment to suggest maximum action AND to repeat the Y design both in the boy's body and in his shadow. And I won't even mention the rich textures and tones. I just love this.

As soon as I saw your beautiful photograph I came to leave my congratulations on your very well-deserved POTD, but after reading Nikki's comments, and seeing there was so little left to say, I decided to visit your gallery and WOW!!! You have so many wonderful photographs, F! I simply love them all, but "Morning Ride", "Dark", "At Sunrise", "Path" and "Windy Ocean" are some of my favorites. Congratulations on your outstanding work! I will certainly visit your gallery very often from now on. Great job!!!
Cesar

I love this image! The lines, tones, textures, composition - all terrific - and the shadow is the icing on the cake. Congratulations on this excellent POTD.
