BWR: I absolutely love that guy's work. He is among the best of the best. He actually goes out, takes his own pictures, makes his own models, etc and then Photoshops them. A true inspiration. ( 3 years and 272 days ago )
still26: Dear Pxleyes,

Well, I just studied the link and want to thank you for posting this contest and his interview. I'm scratching my head which feels quite empty at this time, so am going to the fridge to eat a Sarah Lee Cheescake.

I'm inspired.

Thank you. ( 3 years and 272 days ago )

Can you find the hidden lady? A heavy composite of many sources. Made the water from an underwater photo combined with a surface photo. The cracked and rising ground was some ordinary gray cement that was warped to make it look like it was breaking open (see source #1). Converted the cement to a "brick" look. A great deal of light, color, and various contrast methods. Hope you like it.
