** Greetings from the Critique Club **

Not sure if the phobia is just of dreaming you're falling, or dreaming of falling down stairs...either way it does convey the dream feeling - or nightmare in this case.
Technically, I would have liked to see more of the person. The softness is well executed to give the dreamy feeling. You're use of B/W for this as a good decision in my mind. As for composition, I think the crop could have been tighter along the bottom of your image. When I scroll, and keep the image showing only from the bottom step up, it looks better - more balanced.

This was one of my very favorites...I guess for many it took too much imagination? Beautiful work.

I'm sure I've had this nightmare! Nice imagery here, you can sense what's going to happen next and you want to stop it. A nice use of blur, however I would have like to see more sharpness on the legs of the unfortunate one.

Very nice. Love the soft blur on this one. It almost looks like you are floating, nice eerie feel to it.

Effective image and idea. Would be better if something in the image were sharp.

Sorry, I just don't get this. Doesn't convey nightmare, but perhaps a gentle "floating" dream. I guess the soft focus is to make this dream like, but looks boring rather than fearful.

Interesting image but sorry, I don't get it

This does not seem to meet the challenge.

Fear of flying? Fear of hanging above stairs? Beautiful shot. I like the softness of the image, but for this challenge I don't get it.
