Suspended in time

Didn't get anything I liked today, so here's another from my afternoon at the gymnastics studio: my son halfway through a back handspring. It took many tries to get the timing right, as my camera has an annoying delay. In the end it was pure luck.

I love the repeating arcs ... of the subject and the frame!

You did have great luck with this one! Due to your camera's delay time, you could try shooting continuously to get a number of photos to pick from.
