I can't believe so many ppl want to know how it was done, this technique has been used a lot in the past, I first remember seeing it used here.

The picture of the girl was printed on a piece of paper and stuck on the wall, I then placed my male model in front and adjusted his pose until I achieved what I was looking for.

I always appreciate it when I see the original, so here it is

Well, it may have been done before -- but you pulled it off so expertly, it didn't look at all like it was just a picture -- and it was brilliant to rotate it the way you did. This is great :) Congratulations on your first ribbon. . .keep that up and it will most certainly be the first of many :)

Congrats on a well-deserved ribbon! This was my favourite of the challenge :-)

It just goes to show that originally wins out here in the end :-) I must admit I agree with those who say it could do with a little bit of sharpening and extra saturation, but I gave you a 10 and stand by it! Well done!

I didn't realise when voting it was a paper version of her. I though it was a trampoline and clever use of perspective that did it. Great nonetheless!

You had a good ideia. Very creative photo!

Creative, funny, well composed, well exposed. Could benefit from a bit of sharpening, and touch out that white spot on sleeve when you're not constrained by Basic Editing.

Great shot - highest score so far.

i dont think this fits within the editing guidelines but its a good idea, maybe if you used perspective to acheive the effect rather than editing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/08/2008 12:56:28 AM
original & well executed

i hope you used the smallest aperature

too bad hair is in the way of her arms - this takes a little bit away from the illusion of her falling
