This image tells the story of a world infested with disease...a far off city burn their dead to try and contain the illness.

The plague doctor is the only one that can save them, traveling from city to city, he whispers in the ear of the sick. Will they be saved?

The image:

The gravel puddle floor was taken in Yorkshire, UK. The rocks and city are from Marrakech. The birds are a brush I made for Storm Siren. The God rays are a pixel bend with softlight and the guy was the last photo I took at Whitby in October....so glad I spotted him!
Used quite muted colour pallet for this as I wanted to give it a bit of a spooky cold feel.

Have a good weekend. There is a free tutorial on my website on Lightroom if your interested on the iShare page.

I decided to award a User Award to you as well - it was the most striking image in my opinion amongst the pictures that I've voted for recently. You earned it with this wonderful piece. Keep them coming! Smile
