BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
A New Day Is Dawning
A New Day Is Dawning

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!

SSSLaura :D

Receiving an award from Better Photo is just like unwrapping a gift, the thrill is always the same! It is also exciting to be able to send my personal congratulations to each and every one of you and I look forward to seeing the gold though out the galleries. Merna
