The lighting in his pic is absolutely perfect, giving the proper feeling of depth. I also love how each stock pic blends in great and makes it look more like it was an orignal pic instead of having each portion put together. the flying crows and the log blockung the road are great additions, giving it the feeling of being mysterious. My overall favorite detail to this picture is how the trees seem to be looming over each other, with the bright lighting in the background, making certain details stand out more. Very nice job, and the DD was well deserved.
Absolutely beautiful! It wasn't a completely new idea but it's laid out nicely, and the darkened path is very nice. I kind of wonder how you got all this set up. The birds were a nice touch also. The mystery of those in the carriage makes me feel as if I'm reading a story and want to see what happens next. This is a beautiful piece of artwork. I don't have much experience with set up photography. Mostly I take on the spot photos but from what I can see you are very good at your trade. Great work. -Tox
