This is part of an out-door. The model´s feet are out of the out-door frame - the advertising is about furniture and those guys who do not fit their´s beds. So I forgot all the rest and focused only on the feet and the sky behind to create this image.

Hello again from the Critique Club!

We have got to stop meeting like this, LOL!

This is a wonderful overall shot but I'll be honest when I first saw it, the feet seemed to be in the wrong place. HUH? Well, the title tells me you want to put your feet back on the ground but instead of looking like you are walking on clouds it looks like you are sitting on them with your feet sticking out. A 90 degree rotation to the left might have made a big difference on this shot.

I would have never guessed this was a billboard (what we call them here in the US) The feet do look almost pasted in, so sharp and crisp against the soft sky. Maybe if you could have softened them up just a tad?

Also the sky is very white and bright against the socks, if a better balance on the light could be found.

Actually, rotate the shot, crop what is now the top part and make this a tall shot and I think it would really make a difference. If you decide to do this, please let me know and see the new shot.

Good Luck In Future Challenges!

Very good idea but it's kinda hard to see the feet, maybe if you were wearing some darker socks it'd be more powerful

The title is cool with different language in it. It think it would be cooler with bare feet.

I think there's too much negative space, and the feet somehow look to sharp agianst the sky

I would love to see more blue sky to accentuate the feet even more. It may look better barefoot as well. Otherwise, nice composition. Good idea... :-)

Bare feet and less clouds might have been better

Nice. For some reason, I feel this may have worked better with bare feet.

I like this idea, but think the feet fall short. The shocks are not interesting, maybe some red shocks? <or> some stripes would of given this a bit more punch.

NIce idea. Good Shot. The feet are a bit underexposed, due to the bright skys. The looking of the scene itself may be improved with the <a href='//www.dpchallenge.com/tutorial.php?TUTORIAL_ID=5'>Rule of Thirds</a>.

Barefoot would've been better.
