Winning entry, with a score of:
Contest goal:

We all experience gravitational force, day by day. Your goal in this contest, though, is to create anything that illustrates the exact opposite of gravitation! Show off your blending skills and make anything or anyone float in mid-air on planet earth. It can be anything you like, but the more anti-gravity effects in your photo, the better. It's all is up to your imagination. Have fun!

Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

DanLundberg: Shadows are going to be key to distinguish between poor Photoshopping and believable floating. ( 5 years and 2570 days ago )
Breno: Ditto! Here's an example: ( 5 years and 2570 days ago )
Geexman: Great, I guess that means the photographers hanging stuff from strings, removing the string in PS and calling it a chop ...... I guess we`ll see ( 5 years and 2569 days ago )
DanLundberg: Breno's example of the winner from a prior 'Gravity Distorted' contest (an entry that I thought was very clever then and still think is still so now) is a bit more complicated than Geexman's just-clone-out-the-strings hypothetical. But he's correct that the amount of Photoshopping required should be one of the factors considered when scoring entries. And thanks to Breno's vigilance, what was clever the last go-around will be now be unoriginal. ( 5 years and 2569 days ago )
arca: Are we talking floating or flying ... does a person with "wings" count? ( 5 years and 2569 days ago )
arca: Comment on my comment ... it does seem that something large with tiny wings woud be "devying gravity" I mean that's what I think when I get on a jet! ( 5 years and 2569 days ago )
erikuri: @Arca: I think that wings don't count, based on Breno's example. Imagine something like the astronauts in space... ( 5 years and 2569 days ago )
erikuri: @Breno: esse seu trabalho é 10! ( 5 years and 2569 days ago )
Geexman: @ Dan, no its not complicated, a steady tripod, 3 or 4 photos, each photo on a different layer and the eraser tool need to add shadows or screw with lighting ....yes its that simple! (basically outside source use will get higher votes from me!) ( 5 years and 2569 days ago )
Breno: @erikuri: Obrigado @Geexman: it was not even close to simple, since I had to get the job done all by myself - set the camera, run to get in position for the first shot, set the camera again, run for the second shot and so on, which was rather complicated because I didn't have anyone to tell me whether each position was right during the process and all the pictures should match. I understand that you appreciate the use of outside sources, but my idea (which I think was original) was getting the best looking result possible, regardless of the method used. ( 5 years and 2567 days ago )
Breno: ... and before anyone gets concerned, no, I'm not going to participate this time and no, I don't intend to use myself as a model in future chops/contests... I'm not supid, I'm well aware of the anonymity rules. ( 5 years and 2567 days ago )
Geexman: You`re missing the point Breno, I`m not dismissing the photography involved, these contests are about how well an image can be manipulated, composed etc using a graphics program..... in explaining the tremedous amount of work involved in setting up the photographs only confirms my point. If the photos are just right then it makes the chop simple. I think every chopper on here will agree that if we stumble on 2 sources with the same perspective, same lighting & same resolution we have hit the jackpot, as the chop is so much easier. In posting these types of entries how are they to be judged? If we all gave high marks based on the effort involved in the photography then surely thats a photography competition? This aint a personal thing buddy, I just dont agree with over staged sources in a manipulation contest. ( 5 years and 2566 days ago )
Breno: @Geexman: ok man, I see your point now and agree with you ( 5 years and 2566 days ago )

Howdie stranger!
