Why can't it be the 3rd, 5th, or 18th - each taken when the waters
stilled? I have to believe that HCB planned having the push-off ripples
as part of the composition. His photography, after all, is ABOUT
composition and form.

The water in the picture is completely still except for where the board
he jumped from made some ripples as he pushed off.  Was this then the
first of the 18?


I HAVE seen the contact sheet in question.
As I recall it was about 18 shots of HCB covering the jumper from a
variety of angles as the jumper did different takes.
