A classic image that fits the central theme of this challenge. very well captured to accent that fantasy aspect of our lives.

Returning for comments. This was my only 10. I loved the soft colors and textures in the scene with the starkness in the models black attire. Overall lighting is great (even though I suspect a little D&B which is adding to the effect). Her pose is awesome and really transmits a feeling of freedom. And how did she get so high off the ground? Excellent photo. Good luck in the challenge!

don't know if this is such a fantasy world but it's beautiful 8

This is a fantastic composition. You are a genius to have come up with this combination of lighting, fantasy action and color. Good use of the rule of thirds.

Reviewers will easily connect with your image.

It is ever so slightly overexposed but that seems to work very well with your fantasy illusion. The bubbles are a little hard to see at first but are a nice addition.

This will be a top placing image in this challenge.

This is an amazing shot, I just cannot see the tie-in to fantasy! Not gonna mark you down for that though....

what a nice capture and timing .. the detail is right no .. .definitly free spirited - i guess that can be in anyone's fantasy world :)

Fabulous image. I didn't even notice the bubbles until I was scanning over my top picks after voting. This may just be our winner.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Really great shot. I love the large empty feeling of the sky and the way she stands out against the clouds. The textures in the sand are also great.

Unabashed joyfulness...such a contagious image! ( love the bubbles too...)

Wonderful take on this challenge..great shot!

06/21/2005 05:00:38 PM
Love this shot, wow she really jumps high! Ahh the concept of free world now that's fantasy...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2005 02:44:42 PM
This is a really nice action shot with a gorgeous background. Unfortunately, IMO, the gorgeous expanse of sky somewhat overwhelms the model. I think that perhaps getting closer to her (either physically or zooming in) would give her more importance in the photo (and let us see that the bubbles aren't sensor dust!).

You will hopefully be a winner. This is a remarkable capture. Congratulations on a fantastic picture.

I really like this photo! Makes me think of something you'd see in a magizine!
One of my favs!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/20/2005 07:13:32 PM
Well that's pretty awesome. Well composed to emphasize the height of the jump (and that is a pretty big jump!).

I'm glad to see you didn't succumb to the tempation to burn those clouds to pieces in PS. Are those bubbles I see? Great shot, great pose from the model - I get fantasy world from this and I hope everyone else does as well!

Good luck

The bubbles(?) are a little distracting, but a nice image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/20/2005 04:17:02 AM
Seems like we've seen this beach before... What are the circles to the bottom left of her foot in the clouds? Wait, I'm now guessing that they are supposed to be bubbles. I see them on her dress. It may be the limitation in the picture size, but at this size they look like imperfections (either bad clones or water spots).
