[Post challenge:]

Whooo! 4th place, with such a different entry, it makes me so happy!

I didn't write the details before, because this was shot at 11am and I had to catch a flight that same afternoon, so the setup was poor compared to what could have been.

Anyway, thank you so much to my sister Ana for being available to do this.

I was standing on top of a stool, with the camera on the tip of the tripod.
The clouds are made of cotton and I just wished the branch was bigger, but none was available.

Thank you so much for all the comments, and indirectly to Jan for his inspiration on his series Dreams of flying.

Porra João!!! Já não há pachorra pá! :)
Part of this post is in Portuguese because there are children running around...

I can't find something to shoot for our private competition and there you go sidetracking Top #10's one after the other! Pfffff.....

Just kidding! Congratulations on a great photo, even though I feel the composition is lacking something I can't really define, the idea was just great and fantastic for the challenge!
Kudos for putting your ideas to practise.

A blue tarpaulin over the grass would have completed the symbolism...

wow! This is pretty sweet. I love the colors, and how whimsical it is. Perhaps shooting from a higher(more straight on) angle would have added more to the illusion?

this reminds me of a green felt board that my kids had and all the stories we put together on it. Now I have to go and look up Jan von Holleben so I can vote.
