Great title, great pose. The action is beautifully frozen complimenting the static chair and the positioning of the two relative to each other works well. Lighting is spot on too. Very deserving of it's GE award! Smile

She's never going to make it over that chair - beautiful capture and a really controlled pose in spite of the flying hair.

I suspect she is going to fall a tad short of clearing it.
Better luck next time (after the leg is out of plaster .... lol)

Excellent set up Richard. Before you print the wrinkles in the backdrop could do with tidying up (behind the chair) - I would be tempted to remove the transition line in the backdrop too as it cuts the image and detracts from the smoothness of the background.
