Absolutely. Nicely done. I like it, but I keep thinking that it's going to hurt when he comes back down. Steve

Thank you Steve and Paulo !
Going down sometimes hurts but it's the price to pay to get high (spiritually speaking of course )

Has to be a composite...
Beautifully conceived and executed.
I love the way you used the reflection to light a fire under him. The sun may be the object of his concentration, but jet propulsion is clearly the mechanism for levitation!

Thanks Photon
In fact it's not a composite so to speak.
It was quite difficult to achieve because there were too much tourists on the beach to let my mind reach the needed state

...Well ok I had to clone out something (kept to the minimum) in PS.
The hardest part was to run there and sit on this ridiculous and barely stable kind of "chair" I used and take the pose, all of that in 10 seconds because I couldn't use the remote as I needed both hands this time.
Kind of perilous especially on the top of a big hill

Nice shot. Good use of theme. Too symmetrical for me, but overall nice idea. Maybe less "fixing." Obviously you have to take the chair out, but let the subject be the subject...unbound by symmetrical constraints.

Thanks for your comment Deke.
I've done it symmetrically on purpose otherwise it feels unbalanced and does not work as I would like too (conveiying concentration perfectness) but I guess that's a matter of taste and you're right it may be too much.

Excellent shot, Julien, my friend! I love this kind of creative work! What goes up must come down - but gently.

All best wishes,

Endre

Thanks Steve, Howard and Endre
You're right my friend and I guess the gentleness of the landing is a matter of concentration too

Very creative concept and well executed. Reminds me of something one might have seen on a Pink Floyd album in the 70s.

All the best,
Rich
