Here we have 3 humans chasing 1 robot named Bender.
This shot gave me the opportunity to use an old split field filter lens from 35mm days. All the characters are the same size and its the perspective which changes that appearance.

Nice work, Bynx. I especially like your lighting on the scene. How did you do it?

Very cool one Bynx. Again a very good job with the lighting.

What is a split field filter lens?? That's a new term for me.

My lighting is very technical to explain, but I will do my best. Its a 60 watt light bulb. I hold it in one hand while I take the pic with another. I just move it around until it looks ok in the viewfinder.
As for the split field filter this is a pic of it. There is only half a glass. Thats actually a close up lens while the open half has no lens and is for focussing farther away subject. It also rotates so you can work with the closeup/farther away objects.
Ive just had an operation today and Im sure what I am saying here is not exactly right, but I hope you get the gist of it. Still feeling kinda dizzy.

Thanks Bynx. That is quite a fancy light set up you have:-). That splitter looks like it could be lots of fun!

Excellent!

Bender is a role-model for success. Ruthless pursuit of self-interest, as I recall. Perfectly encapsulated in this shot.

I hope the rest of us can do better, morally speaking.

When I first saw the challenge, I haven't thought of such a pic... but it's "3+1" in the way you describe it... I should start to think out of the box at the weekend - maybe this will give me a good idea, too.
