I agree. This photograph manages to be both sureal, and yet perfectly realistic. A great shot.

Absolutely facinating photograph. I cloned out the spot in the middle and applied some sharpening. I would love to see someone tackle selectively getting the ball in focus or sharpened around the edges. Incredible capture.

While no offense to pboerger and his excellent remake, I much prefer your original version. Yours is Both sureal and strangely realistic; whereas his puts the emphasis on the realism at the expense of that dreamlike quality which only certain situations and light seem to provide.
