    if you hadn't told me there were paragliders, I would have told you that there is some dust on your negative.

    What kind of film/scanner are you using? The resolution seems really low, but I find it hugely appealing. Looks like a photo from the 1900's.

    The other guy is right, they just look like specs in the photo, but the fact that you tell us they are paragliders says everything. It's hard to tell, and for me at least, adds to the overall eerieness of the shot.

    I'd also say there's something violent about the photo, in the stark contrast, the patches of light surrounded by dark, the rushing water, and the angle of the shot. Very good stuff.

    Yeah this is film I pushed to 3200. I also did not take that much time making sure I got the scanning right, but think it came out the way I wanted

    I've always had a slight lithographic film grain "fetish", haha! This is a pretty sweet photo. I agree with rob91, it is slightly eerie thinking about the paragliders.
