A DPC legal variant (no cloned out feet) of an image I got accepted at 1x.com. I nearly like this one as much.

[Aug. 2nd, 2010 02:16:23 AM]

Just to clarify about the feet, since people are asking, I ran it past SC who said it would be DQ'd if I got rid of them.... Removal of a major element. I was not surprised by the decision.

Thanks for your votes, comments and faves. This is now my highest scoring FS image, really pleased this managed to stay above 7. I'm really pleased about where my histogram peaked too.

Cool reflection.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/07/2010 09:04:17 PM
Clever! Took me a sec to realize it was upside down LOL.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/07/2010 08:15:13 PM
Very nice capture. I would like to see it with just enough crop to remove the "real" feet, because they have high contrast that draws the eye away from the main subject (shadow).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/07/2010 07:46:37 PM
This is amazing. An eight for you.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Perfect pose for his frame. Well spotted and very nicely processed. It feels very natural and very dreamy at the same time. 10

Obviously an inverted image, but a phenomenal effect.

Great idea! I like what you did with composition, it takes time to get what's happening.

I wonder if that would have worked better without seeing the real feet.
Fantastic concept and great execution, though. Well deserved 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/04/2010 04:42:18 AM
I see that this is a reflection but I cannot understand why. Maybe a little more of the subject would have helped the image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2010 10:27:35 AM
Very artistic. Promising entry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2010 09:38:21 AM

I don't like it that I know it's flipped. I love it that it's flipped... LOL! I just don't want to know it! I've have burned the shoes and legs of the lower one... (not voting)

Lovely - just lovely.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/01/2010 01:51:04 PM
More mystery and interest without the shoes, IMO. But very good, nonetheless.

sneaky and it works perfectly.

Incredible. This has such a great eerie feel to it. The legs in the bottom are a great effect. 10

08/01/2010 01:56:38 AM
Nice:) I almost want a version without the real foot, just the reflection image. Still, this is interesting.
