[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Have you ever noticed how it seems like you are always walking into the coming storm alone?

A composite of 4 photos, blended using about 20 layers. It's pretty difficult to explain it all. If someone wants to know how, email me and I'll explain it best the I can.

For the repost, I fixed the shadow of the man to match those of the bushes. Thanks Athlon for noticing they were off. I also removed the texture I had applied to the road and tweaked the colors and saturation a little.

belle compo

Wow! What a lovely composition, David! I like it a lot! This is much much better than the previous one. Much much because the shadow cast has improved and the silhouette of the man is shown better in this one. Love the tone and details of grains. I like the cinematic feel in it.
Freddie :)

Straight form a poster for a Quentin Tarantino movie!!!! Also reminds me of Nick Cave's song "The man with the red right hand". Well done. It looks like a dream.

Hi David,
I think I missed the origional, you have done some great PP work here and as Lisa said it would make a great album cover or maybe a DVD cover for a Sci-fi.
Well done
Regards Andy

I like the concept David. Especially the center people there. One thing i dislike (a little) is the lightning. I wish its not strike the person head :):) But maybe thats your intention. I like the moon even i like a smaller :) :)


Hallo David,
sehr gute PP Arbeit. Ich mag das Geheimnisvolle in diesem Bild. Toll!
