cool, but not so much. where are her feet. a shadow of her that doesn't start at her feet would make it more believable. also, what's the purpose of showing her belly. takes away from the effect.

I guess some might believe that a footless pregnant woman levitates; but I thought only swamies did that kind of thing and she, although quite lovely, doesn't quite fit the bill.

I would definitely:

-Show her feet
-Work on the shadow
-Hide her belly (the two subjects (belly & levitation) are competing with one another)
-Maybe have her wear a different color pants, contrasting with the ground color, which would help her look more levitated. Right now, she's kind of blending in.

I would also level it out. it looks like it is tilting to the right a bit.

Honestly this does not work for me. If you want to do a levitation image, you need more. The cloning was a bit obvious, you used too much of the shadow, and there is really no reason for her to be floating. Other than maybe your trying to say she is so happy she is floating up with her belly.

Now, think gravity. If you want to do a floating belly, where should the belly be? on top right. Can she (safely) bend herself is such a way that the belly is causing her to float up, perhaps with clothing that would also compliment that, say hanging down? Hair hanging down also just like she was floating up. Now this could be a cool concept that could be done with a bench, an arch, and maybe a fan at a distance so you get some wave. I think this needs a little more work in creative process as to her position is what I am trying to say.

Good luck,


Why don't you take a picture, it will last longer....

I agree. The two concepts are competing with each other. It's confusing, I cant come up with any correlation with the pregnant women and the fact that she's levitating.
