    One have a choice in that scenario: A life of regret or dying without regrets.

    He wanted it, he went for it, made the move and got it.

    People can stand there, see the show and say, "Siao!", "I wun do it.", "Risk my life for what?", "Stay here safer lah, can take equally good photos. *snap* See! Its almost the same what!"

    He made his choice to jump (flip-flops or not), he achieved what he wanted. It may seem all that crazy but when giving YOU a choice in life: Facing a bad compromise with a potential regret vs 90% chance of certain death with no regrets, which would u choose?

    A bad comprimise with a potential regret...I've got family and believe I can make more of an impact in life than being a smudge on the floor with a fab picture on my cf card

    I think we may have seen a future candidate for a Darwin Award. The awards salute the improvement of the human genome by honoring those who accidentally kill themselves in really stupid ways.

    2. If you've read the comments, the shot was taken at 300mm.
    actually i wasn't very convinced with your explainations as the photos still look awkward. but since there is another person who shot it, i guess it is real.

    actually i dun think his main interest is photography, maybe more of adventure and climbing. he could have jump over to drink a beer but we wouldn't say wow, he risks his life to drink a beer.

    i can hardly see the kind of "dun try and regret for ur whole life" vs "it's ok, u failed but at least u tried" kind of scenerio down here.

    To me, this is simply a case of extreme stupidity to risk ur life over a worthless event. More like he's trying to get the attention of the public then really thinking he's going to get the best shot of his life by shooting it on that small pic of rock.

    So in case of emergency can discard the tripod without feeling heart pain.

    Haha...I was thinking the same thing!

    so maybe next time if people asking which tripod to buy...need to ask more details before suggesting to them.

    Cleanse your thoughts, not by the foods you eat.
