Scanning the Horizon

By paulbroad
A composite shot for a bit of fun. Two blokes from a military society at a gala cut out and pasted onto a scanned colour side of misty woodland, then a Dakota added three times at different sizes and densities. Flattened, converted to mono then toned.

I've put digital, but the background was 35mm Fujichrome.

Perhaps the caption should read -
"For pity's sake....behind you!"
It gets my vote for effort and expertise.

Very effective! I must get the girls to show me how to do such things!!
P.S. You need to put commas between each 'tag' for them to work! Smile

For scotdiver - can't help - they just happened to have a stand at this local village gala in North Lincolnshire.

They were actually looking at two pretty girls on a stand about 20 yards away!

Excellent digital work. Cant see the joins at all! However, I would have been inclined to have spaced the planes out a bit more and varied their sizes to create a more realistic look here. But that's me - being nitpicking!! I think it's a great image - and who cares WHAT they were looking at?!!
