I took it this weekend at the pool. My friend jumped off the diving board but can't swim. I couldn't help but to take this picture. Any improvements necessary?

It's good you caught some of his facial expression (even side on).

Nice colours and 'capturing' the moment.

Yes he survived I could barely take the pictures from laughing so hard. I will try to remember to take them at a different angle next time.

here's a stupid question. Why would your friend jump off a diving board, if he can't swim?

the only critique i could give would be to have gotten a different angle so he is facing you more. Obviously, someone who cannot swim but is in the water will have a very interesting facial expression.

In addition to the angle, the picture shows a lack of detail - either noise from too high an ISO or the image is simply over-cropped. Since the exif has been stripped I can't say whether it's noise due to too high an ISO for that camera.
