Good trick!
This would make a good ad shot for "Lighter than Air" sneakers. I can visualize the video camera panning around a bedroom with some well known basketball player snoring in the bed, and the sneakers in this position at the end of the pan. The text over would read; "So light that you have to tie them down at night."
You got a grin for this one.

I like it how the light still appears like it is coming from above, as it would.

Moon Shoes, Hay Ohhhhh!

I love it, what i would have done was sever the lace a bit to give the feel that the shoes are pulling hard to get off and there ripping the laces.

That's just my opinion though

I can see why it was so popular - the shoes just look like they're straining to escape! :)

Very good! I like it a lot. Good light, good cropping, very atractive and fun. Focus still can get a little better, and that will always make your images differ from the pack. One of my two choices to win. Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Better lighting/ sharper image would make this a potential 10. Composition and idea are great.

the light placement added to the effect.. too bad there isnt a way to do it without tying off the shoe strings.. the ends just touching the chair would really be neat

I like this one. The title is deeper than one would first think. New Balance. Great gradient lighting. It is a bit obvious how this was done, but executed nicely. How did you fasten the chair on the roof? That is the trick! -10 sojourner

It was bound to happen if they kept putting all that air in the soles. seasick - 7.

Heh, pretty obvious, but nevertheless, it looks really cool.

Cute
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/29/2002 12:37:00 AM
Cool. I like that you put the light on top (bottom). There are several photos with the same general idea, but I think you did a good job with it. I would like to see more of the chair and less space above the shoes maybe. ~indi

so simple, good result

On of my favorites so far. Very illusional! Wish I had thought of it ---I have a chair just like that! The only little thing that I think may have made this even more dynamic would be a colorful wall for the background. 9

I saw this one on the web.... You must've found the same sight I did! Framing is good. Lighting and color need some work. 6

Excellent! I love this idea.

I wonder how this was done!! ;-)

Nice effect and you've captured it well. The light seems to be a little too bright at the top of the photo though.
