2 seems to have some sort of compression issue on the jpg... I am seeing a lot of artifacts on there... what software are you using to do the processing? Can you explain a little on #2 what you did on the processing stage?

1 and 3 look pretty good to me... partial to number one as its showing more action...

Nice Robin, I thought YOU were skydiving...lol So, what lens was used and are these extreme crops? I like the 2nd shot best!!

that does look like fun... any way to sky dive from say.... 50 feet? lol

Thanks guys. I am using Photoshop Elements 3.0 for processing, however saving them in the FujiFinepix Viewer. I cropped the second and enlarged from the original. I see what you mean, I didn't notice it till you mentioned it, seems most noticable in the lines from the shoot. I agree with the skydiving from 50 ft..LOL...though I am willing to ride along to take a few as they jump :)
