This image is like the "Save Cocoon...." picture. I really like the "turn into crystal" effect and the dynamic and lively design. Great job, even better than the game. =D

Serah's tear should've went to Lightning, not Snow. It would be Lightning's chance for redemption. Snow is both overdeveloped and underdeveloped. Hope should've stayed with Snow instead of Lightning.

You're expressions, the editing, everything.

Stop denying it - I know it now. You jumped right out of the game!

This picture is just awesome. At first I was busy being fascinated that you've got the picture of her "floating" and then I looked at Lightning's face. "Oh shit!" is the best phrase I can come up with. Lightning looks ready to maul Barthendelus bare handed! >_>

So, how DID you guys get it to be like she's floating? Have her fall back and snap a photo? Or is there photoshop magic involved?

That's gonna be a small secret of ours but there is no photoshop involved at least in this case. She wasn't also falling back... she was... floating... to be honest... seriously floating as much as it's possible ;)
There was photoshop involved of course but mainly the background an some special effects.

Honestly, this was one of the most difficult photos we took.
