nice idea, but it's so obvious it's a fake... the light's angle and shadow's angle are not related and the immediate effect is to diminish the photo's value... It would be a good idea to rotate a little the gravestone...

I saw this straight from the camera and its no fake.
I tried to get him to add a texture but he is a purist.

She is a fake Alan !! NO WAY,does she go to church dressed like that. If she did,I would turn into a right Holy Joe. I would gladly leap off my pew,and throw myself on my knees,and worship at her highheeled stocking feet !! My eyes would be cast up above,with chants of ''Halleluah,praise the Lord,I have seen the light'' !! I would be like Moses,when he cast his eyes on the burning bush !! The best fake I have seen.And she has not even been played around with in Photoshop !!

Clever inclusion of the bit of glamour Alan. Whoever lies in that grave would relish such a shadow lying over him Smile.
Seriously.....The shot was well seen and composed, you have a sharp eye as well as a sharp wit.
Love mikbee's SOH. Is he a family member?

There's a lot of know-it-alls on this site but I don't see the point of being rude to them. Me! Well I think its a nice photo and that it defo looked fake for an instant. If you don't understand how light and shadows work etc. it would to many people.
Thankyou 4 sharing...Click Smile

You have positioned the camera perfectly to capture shadow and and the inclusion of glamour model is just wonderful. Great capture Alan.
