You know lots of women who can really jump. :)
I was thinking if you ever tried something like this again, maybe wrap the ribbons of the balloons around a small rod, that way you could have the model hold up rod and keep the illusion up even more.

This is wonderfully different. I think I may have put a fine black and white border around thios to both enclose it and furthewr accentuate the black and white theme running through the shot - but that might just be personal taste.

Very stylish.

Beautiful. Very similar to Lacoste's ad campaign right now.

Great shot I thought this one may have got a ribbon.

Wow, great expression with the matching B&W dress vs. ballons. + the fact that the dots are round like the balloons. Yes, I know, stating the obvious! Almost feels a little like Mary Poppins except with balloons instead of an umbrella.

The "high feeling" that I get with this POV is great. She feels so high above the city, high above her troubles; just floating away. Cool shot. -BB

I like the awkward tension of the model. amazing how she got her limbs parallel.

Oh, my. Straight out of the pages of Vogue. Perfection. 10

excellent shot! great idea. the illusion would be stronger if the balloons were above her head, though. I love the polka dot dress and black and white balloons.

What a fun quirky shot! My eyes would like to see less space on the left and more on the right to match the "direction" she seems to be going but who knows. Very cute. 8

Really like the pose, clothing, make-up etc of the model and balloons but I find the environment behind particularly mundane - unattractive and cluttered rooftops and buildings.

excellent idea and title to go with your picture.
i would have cropped a little more of the forground though, so that you could only see the horizon line with a few palm trees. your model just seems a little disconnected from the scene that is going on in the foreground...
anyways the pose, model and lighting are superb! 8

wow...a flying woman! that's a great shot...I am not sure about the actual buildings in the background, but overall this is a great image 9

Nice capture. I like her pose. Too bad the black balloons ended up behind her head as it is hard to distinguish her hair from the balloon.
