This is a blend of two images:
The rider is captured in bright daylight in Hinton, Alberta, Canada
and the background is captured outside my house in Grejs, Denmark.

Gorgeous composite shot, Kiki!
Leif looks right at home on that horse. And that sky is stunning. Combining the two images was a brilliant idea!
A winner-waiting-to-happen!

SSSKiki, this is Fan-TASTIC work and I am so glad you told us it is a layered image.

You did an amazing job and I am so very impressed. Now I think you can teach me a few things! :)))))

I love how real Leif looks. As if we see him in 3D! (3 Dimensional).

I cannot tell you how much I love this but I guess you already know. You saw the expression on my face on our Skype call today! :D

BRAVO, 20/20 and a Gold Win from this Judge!
