This image really interests me. I see it is entered twice and rec'd a very deserving award. I like the POV and the DOF that was achieved.

But, I'm a bit confused with the lighting. In the foreground, the light seems to be coming from two sources, assume by flash coupled with ambient. While in the back ground the light is from left above and a soft light as if it were dusk.

Which leads me to believe this may be a composite,but don't thinks so based on the other work you've posted. Bottom line is, I really like it but would give a nickle to talk to you to discuss how it was done. :o) #10539750

Here's the lighting information, and it won't cost you anything. :) You're right that it's not a composite - that's something I've never tried - a little work with textures is the closest I've come. You're also right that the light in the background is soft and from the left - sunrise, actually. I'll try to attach a photo to show the the other light source (not flash). The structure I'm shooting through is actually lit from the bottom, so that's where that light is coming from. #10539930

Obviously I didn't mean to answer this twice, but I needed two tries to upload a photo with it. I hope this answers your question, Dale...thank you for the comments. #10539946

Dale Hardin 1/27/2013 11:32:21 AM

thank you Lindley. It really had me confused and had never suspected it would have a permanent light source from the bottom. Your image really explained a lot.

Being so long in the Phellos critique club in BP has me looking at everything in a photo. Can't help it. :o) #10540092
