If you are interested to know what was done to make this shot - leave me a comment - I can't believe that it got 6 "1's" in the voting - I wish those people would comment as to why they do not think this picture fit the topic and or such a bad picture that it deserved a 1. This shot took me almost 8 hours to get it to shoot like this! Surely someone that doesn't appreciate it can take 20 seconds to tell me why it's soooo bad - constructively. If I had to do it over again there is lots that I would change - and the comments I got so far have helped a lot! And I thank you for that!

Wow, I didn't enter the Surrealism challenge so I wasn't so pressed to get to see all the entries and I missed this one. This is amazing! Very touching. The lighting to make her see-through I understand (I think), but how in the world is she suspended? Nice job.

I cannot believe that anyone would give you a 1 for this astounding photo. I for one gave it an 9 and would in all probability given it a 10 upon my final review were it not for the fact that I never got the chance to conduct a final review.

Fantastic job.... keep up the good work.

Cool idea and rather well executed. I'm guessing this was done with a window and a blue light on reflection? Colours could've been better on the foreground and perharps a slightly better lighting on the boy's bed and self. Composition is interesting, but the left pillow left me hanging, a tighter crop would've helped i think. 5

That is awesome!

great job! My only issue with the photo is the bed sheets are a bit distracting, a solid color would have helped. The lighting on the young boy could've been softer, looks like flash. I'm sure this was need because of the effect you used though. 6

creepy shot, but the light on child is too bright.

I would give you 10 for the technique and the idea. Unfortunately, to my opinion, the picture is not perfect cause you should have give an additionnal artistic touch to the decor and the light on the boys face. Still very surreal and surprising!
