Congrats! So how did you do it if there were no strings attached? Is it one of those magnetic things?

One that caught my eye at once. Very good work. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

This was a really cool shot. I think your title sort of took away from the 'magic' part, but still a really nice shot and grats on the score.

Interesting photo...a little dark without a particular reason for it. In other words I don't know how the dark or green cast really helps the photo.

I liked all of the levitation images, but this was the best. The intensity of his gaze is something else, and I like how you got his eye into the same space with the floating object. I hope you share how you did it. 8.

The darkness works well in this case, it adds to the mystery. Those wild eyes are quite something! 8

Nice composition. Nice trick. Just a tad too dark, but the B&W conversion is well done otherwise. 7
