I was most inspired to do this challenge by this photo:

She is typically outdoors, in social settings for her leaps, but this one is in her house, doing chores. I like that idea. It took me about 200 shots to get one I liked.

Thank you all for the kind comments!!

@aliqui, I didn't even notice it!! That is too funny.

Interesting. While it's a good score, I'd expected this to place better. Not only do you have the subject levitating, but also the food. There's a few ahead of you in the challenge that I feel are far weaker than this image. It should have easily been in the top 10.

I must say though... push in that drawer! My husband leaves the cabinets open all the time. Drives me bonkers!

Very appropriate choice of processing, it gives it an edge over any alternative I can think of.
Good idea and well developed.

Loved the crop of this. Very surprised it didn't do better. Got a 10 from me. Gorgeous processing!

Very nice colors and realistic levitation. I'm wondering why you chose to not include the face in the frame

What toast? Sorry, I was distracted... ;-)

But seriously, I like the softness of it and the cutting off of the head gives the illusion that she is even higher. 7

This is one of my favorites from the challenge... probably my favorite. Good simple pose. Love that the toast is floating too. No motion blur. Very cute model. However, I'm seeing a bit too much purple in the color mix. Still a high scorer in my mind.

Beautiful shot. Love the post processing done here... gives it an "older" feeling.
