Dive at a Mexican Sunset

Maker's notes: 

On a walk in Mazatlan Mexico, I watched this man as he dove after soliciting money from the people around with the promise of giving them this show. There was someone in front of me whose head got in my way at the bottom of the cliff. After some manipulation of the photo in that area, I was able to get the outline of his head out, but was left with the dark area in that area. Most of that area was dark, anyway, but I left it in feeling that keeping the water in at the left was important enough to the story to do so.
