I agree with Paula, Lewis - fun composite. Can you tell us how you did this? Was the boy actually there and then cloned out? Or did you bring him in from another picture?

So you want to know the secret behind the curtain do you?

Ok.

I took 2 pictures in the bathroom, one with boy and one with the dad. Camera on tripod. Then I just put them on top of each other ( the boy on top of the dad) and used a layer mask to reveal the dad in the mirror.

Then there was some blurring, cloning and changing the color temperature to look like tungsten light instead of the flash.

Awesome! Most composites look contrived, but this is awesome!

Oh WOW Lewis! I love this. I have to tell the truth...You made my cry. It made me think of my little 5 year old son. He admires his Daddy so. You have a wonderful capture here. I wish I had a capture like this of the two of them. Thank you Lewis for such a profound image!
