    Perrine Bridge, Twin Falls, Idaho - Only legal bridge in US to base jump off of! 8th highest bridge in the states, it brings people from all over the world to jump. I hiked down one Saturday and took some shots of them jumping and landing - What's hard to believe, is that for most of them, once they land, they actually climb the cliff back up to the top again! That's a 486' climb, almost straight up! There's a guy that parks his boat near the landing site and charges $8 to ferry them back to a park to be driven out - .... I chose to pay the $8.. :D

    I wish they were zoomed out a bit so I could see the whole picture of what is happening.

    Definitely agree here, it'd add some perspective and each photo would be a story in itself, you wouldn't have to show another picture of the bridge itself or anything like that.

    Saying that, number 4 is really good, crisp and precise.

    In the first two I probably wouldn't have been able to figure out what the image was of, or about. Your explanation is the only thing that gives them context.

    I think it was #3? that was the best.
