    Aha! Nice. First I fell for it, but I read the article in the link and looked at your picture again and saw the trick. :)

    Excellent implementation of the puddle technique steph! But why not just put it in Photoshop, Photoshop it, and then Photoshop everything?

    if it was a car or something i would probably just put it into photoshop and photoshop it.

    The only thing that throws me off is the depth of field. If he were levitating, his shadow would be directly beneath him, and hence he and the shadow would be equally clear. But in the picture, he's in focus while the puddle and the ground surrounding it are out of focus. I would take two shots--one focused on the puddle and the ground surrounding it, and the second focused on him, and then composite the body from the latter into the former. But your work is all really good and you've inspired me to try some too.
