    That's an interesting piece of work, my friend. The more I look at it, the more I like it. A strong imagination is at work here. The technique of using light and dark areas to create illusions is effective.

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    Thanks Tom. The background is a wall with peeling paint, the shadows are true shadows of the paint peeling off.

    I find this very interesting. I'm enjoying looking at the details of the city and how they interplay with the shadows and peeling paint. What city is this? With a really big aqueduct going right through th middle of it?? Cool. Love the monochromatic/outline treatment. Not quite sure if the square crop works for me.

    You got me here, Cristóbal. I see areas where the paint has pulled back creating the shadow....yet the part of the scene that has peeled back ( to create the shadow ) continues on into the shadowed area with no interruption. ?????

    Thanks Sara, the city is Zacatecas in Mexico, still has a beautiful aqueduct and colonial buildings.

    Tom, I don't have the skills to do more sophisticated stuff.

    Hell, Cristóbal, I'm going to blame my perceptions in this case on some bad tequila. I hope I'll be OK in the morning. B)

    Cristóbal...

    Top shelf!

    A sharp eye...resulting in a very creative, innovative and interesting image.

    Well done!

    Many thanks. I’ve been wanting to do something with these two shots for quite a while and I actually thought this up while half asleep one night. Got to work on the idea the next day and here it is.
