They're standing on the glass roof :P At first I was annoyed by the dots on the glass but it looks like pop art and in my opinion is quite effective. I used a long exposure to blow out the sky and make the bodies faded so the feet stand out more.

Possibly one of the most creative shots in this challenge and certainly my favorite.
Because it comes off as a graphical represenrarion I wonder if something else could have been done to strengthened the final outcome. Regardless, it remains a very cool effect and enough charm even as it is with the light tint values. Bumping image from 5 to 8

Very cool effect that standing on the grating presents as it almost appears your two are floating in air. Very unique shooting angle that I like very much. I also like the high-key toning and the way that most of the body on the two people are hazed out except for the feet. Think it could have been improved with some flash light on the soles of the feet, but still a very compelling image.

Very innovative shot. Composition is very good and conveys a strong relationship between the two. Can't wait to see how you did it within the rules! Among the best of the challenge.

I have had a similar shot in my head for many many years but I never found a way to shoot it. Congrats youv'e done a very good job. The title is very clever. This one is one of my favorites.

I took some shots like this (I'll upload some after) but this is very good with some lovely lighting and tone around the feet.

My one bug is the people's stance. I'd much rather they were not looking down and we were left with just the shapes. The arrangement of the feet is also a little awkward and an off-centre composition would assist the light, airy feel in the shot.

Well thought out, and pleasing.

I love this. the grate, or whatever they are standing on, gives a nice halftone effect and the foreshortening of the people, combined with the shadowed feet, draw your attention right to the subject. I also like the shoes versus bare feet. one of 2 favorites of mine in this challenge. 10!
