The Plague Doctor

By K_T  
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 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.
Website link is on my profile.
