I had to go back to this one and stare some more because it's so spell-binding and very surreal. Good luck. 10

I like the overall effect of this - the way you can see bits of the land in every corner is very surreal.

Like a pretzel: twisted and good.

first time a saw this, i thought it was two lovers in their own world, then someone pointed out to me that it felt like looking up out of a grave and i bumped it up to a 9 from an 8 for freaky bad dream surreality.
cheers!

wow. Excellent. Striking perspective.. the people's positions and postures in the shot look very casual and real - adding to the "eye to their world" feel of it. On first glance i thought i was in a grave looking up... rather creepy - but powerful. In light of the title, i see it a bit different. In either case, i very much like it. Thanks!

u got it really spinning..a little fill-in flash might have worked very well here..not soo very surreal but nevertheless a nice idea and rendition

Great shot. A lttle more light reflected upward, evien a fill flash would have made this picture perfect for me. Great sky. Great lens. Great models. An 8.

brilliant work. keep it up! i think the grain is good, but i think it'd look better with a bit more "pop" and less brown cast. 9

Wow very interesting photo and, I really get the surreal feel here.

Very intriguing composition. I love the way the sky "turn"s around the subjects. Although i do not consider this as 'surreal', this is some very interesting work which makes me think of ideas for futur projects. Nice work! 6
