What an intriguing and strange shot. I love the way it is post processed and composed. It makes me think what they are doing and i don't really get the sense that they are falling, but it is wonderful to look at and makes me think

Oh this is tremendous!! Such an interesting photo. I love the subdued tones. A+ for imagination.

i disagree with those who say that it doesn't match your title.

it reminds me of when I was a kid and I would stand on my head, i would feel disoriented because the sky was below me.

This pic is perfect the way it is, the dirty feet represent childhood, and the photo means much more than just the action of "falling" right? It represents a whole era in my life, and is highly nostalgic.

Kudos on the ribbon.

08/16/2004 09:31:01 AM
Heida, i think it would have been perfect if the pants didn't show on the legs in the left or if the legs on the right had pants LOL...i gave u a 10 but just wanted to share my opinion. Congrats again!

WoW! A ribbon :D Well I never thought this one would do so well
Thanks for the ribbon and thanks for the comments :D
08/16/2004 01:39:41 AM
I got so caught up in knowing who took this shot that I forgot to say in my original comment that I really did like the image. (No I didn't vote different even though I was pretty sure whose work this was. It would have got the same vote regardless:)) It was a very different mood and look when compaired to most of the other images in the challenge. Good work once again. You definately have a style starting and it suits you well.

Good job. Would like to see what the original looked like, so I could get an idea how you go about signing your work.

08/16/2004 12:15:18 AM
Had a pretty good idea this was yours. Very nice shot.

Very Nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/14/2004 08:13:43 PM
Looks to be heavily processed and I really don't like the composition. No blur does not look like falling. Sharpening looks to be excessive, as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/14/2004 05:04:41 PM
Your familiar style will doubtless prejudice many voters' truly objective opinion on this one. : )

As usual, it's technically very good, but the title is what the shot relies on for it's character, more so than the actual subjects. If I remove the title and look at this as an image only, I see an attractive pic (thanks mainly to your post-processing) but some average composition and not particularly evocative subjects. The feet are in the air but they do look so posed that it's difficult to see past it.

I would prefer to have seen an action shot of the same idea but with some sand flying up from the movement with the feet frozen in the frame, perhaps panned round to the side and viewed almost as four feet together. This may also have worked with water, although the sand on the soles adds its most interesting feature as it stands.

Heida? Awesome another 10 from me !

This is my favorite in this challenge, You have made feet a work of art! That in itself is a great feat!

Looks like Icelandic skies there :) Cool pic, I like the idea (10)

I like the contrast of colors!but you could do better the photoshop job!

gorgeous blue background and amusing static/dynamic discrepancy; nice lighting on the skin
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/12/2004 02:02:13 PM
Is it just me, or is it always overcast were you live? Do you ever see the sun?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/12/2004 01:56:26 PM
Super idea, sky is great. Border too heavy for me. This one should finish way towards the top.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/12/2004 10:18:12 AM
Good shot and lighting condition, but maybe to much of the clouds above the feet. Without the bright spot at the top it would be better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/12/2004 04:29:23 AM
Excellent, I think even one pair of feet would have worked here, closer.
Great shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2004 09:50:20 PM
this photo looks like its two seperate images layered together.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2004 08:49:58 PM
Hmmm these clouds look familiar...great idea! The sand on the feet makes the photo, adds some texture. 9

Good job - I like this shot a lot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/10/2004 05:03:11 PM
I don't know about the 'fallng', but as a life drawing practitioner, the feet fascinate me. Interesting shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/10/2004 11:41:18 AM
A bit too contrived for my taste, but it does get your attention in that you wonder how did they get the feet to show with sand intact...then you think of ways.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/10/2004 01:17:42 AM
Iceland?? Interesting photo, not sure it conveys falling though.

This style looks familiar... I'm wondering if I've guessed the photographer. I think you're on my favorites list (and if you're not yet, you might be after this picture)! Great shot. Love the clouds. 10

08/09/2004 03:33:04 PM
This photo is breathtaking. It almost looks like something Heida would take. The clouds obviously are wonderful, and the way you played the feet into the image is outstanding. Great Job, and nice lighting.

Good pic, love the dark background, are those feet Diseased? Or just dirty?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2004 11:43:38 AM
The background is great.. but not the back of the feet ..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2004 11:15:41 AM
My favorite from the challenge!!, lighting is great, and the photo is very interesting. Good Luck, 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2004 03:58:34 AM
nice pose and comp, but quality seems very off.

The legs look kind of bumpy & Jarred around the edges. Perhaps a little too much D&B for my tastes. With B&W it works well but sometimes excessive dodging & burning can make it look too artificial.

still it's an 8, just trying to give a little critique of something that will probably get 99% positives.

Cool idea and nice composition :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2004 01:58:41 AM
lovely light , I hope you explain how you post processed, because while i think what you pointed your camera at was just OK the resulting image is more thatn the sum of its parts

08/09/2004 12:50:51 AM
this looks like a heida shot to me. :) so very cool, you can almost picture them flopping down after a long run on the beach. or something. :) at any rate, great shot, colors, tones and lighting are fantastic.
