Elephant Float Picture

Winning entry, with a score of:
Contest goal:

Create something which is floating in the air, try to be creative!

Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

skyangel: Can it imply flying like a plane or does it need to definitely imply floating like a hot air balloon? ( 4 years and 130 days ago )
Contest Moderator: The description is most specific, the "something" is "floating", not flying. If you showed a plane or a bird that implies it's flying. It also states "be creative" so think outside the box and use your imagination as to what "something" is "floating". ( 4 years and 130 days ago )
skyangel: I picture "floating" as an ordinary non floating object hanging in one place in mid air but "flying" as the same object looking like it is moving through the air not just remaining in one place. Would both those type of entries be acceptable? The only difference is that the "floating" one looks stationary and the "flying" looks like it is moving. A floating person for example is different to a flying person but a person is still a non flying object.

Contest Moderator: This theme is perhaps the most simple we've ever had yet you don't seem to grasp the explanation and you're over intellectualizing a simple theme.
Definition of floating-buoyant or suspended in water or air. (To further define: buoyant-able or apt to stay afloat or rise to the top of a liquid or gas.) A cloud floats, a balloon floats, they can move because they are light enough to be buoyant and moved by wind.
Some flying objects can be buoyant such as an airship but a bird or airplane is not buoyant because they are heavier than air and would fall if not for the wings, propeller or jets that make them fly.
In this contest if you were to show an elephant floating we would assume that something caused it to float, maybe gravity stopped working or it was filled with helium or it was magic. That's what we mean by "be creative". ( 4 years and 129 days ago )
skyangel: I am not overintellectualizing anything. I merely wanted to clarify if flying elephants were acceptable as well as floating elephants. ( 4 years and 129 days ago )
Majkman: I would think a flying elephant is not acceptable while a floating elephant was acceptable

You know that dream?
The one where gravity can't make up its mind?
One minute you're floating, the next, you're falling. No matter what you do, you can't seem to control which direction you're going in, so you desperately try to swim through the air.

Inspired by the story of Alice in Wonderland.
Are you wondering what happened to Alice?
Well, she floated out of the scene to try to get some food which had also floated out of the scene and I couldn't catch her in time. (4 years and 123 days ago)
