This image is a double exposure.

Image works well.

Now all you need to add is a barely visible Transylvanian Castle into the dark background and you have a Fearless-Vampyer Killers type image in the making :lol:

Wow - gorgeous submittal! I agree with Peter in that this looks strikingly like a playbill for The Ninth Gate with Johnny Depp! Correct me if I'm wrong, someone else who's seen the movie. :-)



Anyway, absolutely gorgeous photography and excellent manipulation with a double exposure. A real keeper.

Great shots, so this must be "The Moon and The Man" and the orignal was the Man in the Moon.......Sorry M143, not familiar withwhat you are talking about but I believe you regardless.

very cool mix!

this is one composite that looks alright composited...it's believable...

nice job

imo, it needs something on the left to balance the composition out a bit...

You think so? This could be a good topic for discussion.

I thought about it while composing the image. I like the way the black becomes an object weight in its own right. The movement from the face to the moon then down into the black and back to the face. The black seems to pull on the eye when viewing the other objects in the image. This gives the image a little tension. I think the balance is fine, just not conventional. Anyone else have an opinion?

I think it's perfect as-is. I prefer non-symmetrical things. Nature is asymmetrical and the most interesting things to look at are those that surprise us by NOT being balanced or equal or the same. That's just my opinion. :-)

My opinion isn't very complex....I agree with your perspective philby....I always prefer the unexpected and this does that perfectly. I view the site with the black background so I don't see any framing and there has to be one, basically a border to reference. But this doesn't even need that, it would be best on a totally black screen....
