My girlfriend works at this church so we where allowed to go there one evening and shoot in privacy. I took the first one with the wheel chair and the chair above it, then the rest separately from the right angles. We went spontaneously one evening so it was not really well planned and we had to use the props that where laying around there and this is what came out of it :)

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

Congratulations on your high placing for this highly amusing image that fulfils the challenge very well indeed.

This had me laughing my head off as I scrolled further down the image to reveal all the wobbly stack of chairs all supported by a wheelchair topped off by her wonderfully fearless but precarious posture at the top of the heap, simply wonderful. Thank you for your description, I was scratching my head to try and work out how you had done it all. On close inspection there are some anomalies but this is the sort of shot that has immediate impact and is unlikely to be studied at length such as I am now.

I think you've done such a wonderful job it wouldn't be fair to make the only minor nitpicking criticisms I have. Thank you for the entertainment, I hope your girlfriend doesn't ever have to do this for real! Sid.

I think I would have called this one "Carefully"

I'd never change a bulb in heels, too dangerous! ;-)
Cool setup.

Very well done. Good work on blending the composites. I have one small complaint, the foot should be in farther on the chair.

I think she might need that wheelchair before she is done. :-)
