I did a shoot with one of the best contortionists in the world. Baaska Enkhbaatar is performing for Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson the Immortal Wold Tour show and she lit up my studio with her extraordinary skills. To learn more about Baaska, watch these videos on youtube:

Obvious winner. Grabs the viewer immediately. (IMHO the board is an unnecessary distraction)

Congrats, Allen! Haven't seen you in a while. Which may be why I thought this was someone else's work :)

OMG!!! Are you kidding me? Amazing - and the heels are killer!! A very high 9 from me. Would have been a 10 if you had covered the board in a creative way just in order to distract the eye away from it, but it does add to the symmetry - just not the overall image, IMHO.

Likely winner, here. And could easily be Jen's work. That sort of flexibility is oooooo bizarre. Nice touch with the shoes :)
