Great use of simple techniques

I came across some images that were taken at the Ski Jumping World Cup, there are a big collection of images of the event can be found on The Big Picture.

But there were a couple in the collection that caught my eye, the first being the image below taken by Kai Pfaffenbach for Reuters, he implements a different perspective than you would normally use for a view down the run. It is truly awesome.

The second was an image taken by Robert Michael for AFP/Getty Images. He is utilising the use of fill in flash. I have been working on my flash work recently and this really puts it to great use. Lighting a subject that would have otherwise been plunged into darkness. The flare from the sun adds great depth to the image too.
