I am happy with the end result - I loved this shot way back when I took it. I'm happy that I had a chance to bring it to the light in a challenge where more people would see it.

As to how this was achieved. Forced perspective and hidden objects. My youngest is balancing, but it is on the small bar stool hidden behind the ball. If you look close the main foot on the ball is not resting on top of the ball but looks a bit sunk into it. I instructed her to hold her back foot a little out so that it looks like the tip is touching and rolling with the ball. And thus, I create the illusion of her walking on the ball.

Thank you to those who stopped by and voted, enjoyed and commented.
