Weird scenes inside the goldmine

By arhb      
A composite image, using Britta from a recent shoot, who I shot from a low wide angle perspective, as she crouched on one side of a bridge on the river Wey.
I then added the cave surrounding - a shot I took in North Devon a couple of years back, then came the sky, which I filtered with a motion blur, and finally the moon - taken with a 400mm lens, which was then blurred due to too much detail(dur!).
I then pre-heated the oven to 160 degrees C, and baked the composite image overnight in order to achieve the look that you see - maybe not to everyone's taste, but I'm liking it Smile

Thanks for looking.

Did anyone else wake up this morning with a start, thinking it was monday, and that they had overslept?
I did - then got as far as dialling a customer's number to say I would be late in, before realising it was S u n d a y .
