This image just sort of evolved on its own. I’m not sure where I was going with it when I started but this is what I ended up with. There are three images, the main (silhouette) was actually taken on the Great Wall of China but it could be anywhere.

Nikon D80, 1/125, f/5.3

    I’m so glad I saw this one come up. This is great Anthony! I love the old war feel to it. Isn’t it awesome when the image creates itself? :)

  • thanks Andrew, it is actually a mate of mine in an old officers hat he bought at the market there. I don’t think he looks very Chinese though ; )

    I agree with Parmi, it’s exciting when you allow an image to create itself…the result is fantastic! Love the layering ..and the imprisoned soldier..very well done Anthony! :-)

  • thank you Angie, I was wanting to do something with this image for such along time but nothing came to me, then I started mucking around last night and this is what I ended up with. Hope all’s well ; )

    I like the idea that this one evolved rather than was part of a masterplan; its very effective :)

  • There was no plan here Steve, just sort of stumbled my way along, adding and subtracting then sort of hit upon a theme and this is where it ended up. Very happy you like this ; )

    This is a very cool image, Anthony!
    The symbolism is unmistakable in its meaning and it reflects (or absorbs – shadows don’t reflect) the inevitable duality of human nature and, indeed, the universe!
    All that from three merged images?!
    Nice work, mate!

  • many thanks Elrobbo, greatly appreciated mate ; )

    Nice Anthony, it has a prison guard look about it, very apt with the 40th Berlin Wall anniversary.

  • appreciated John, thank you ; )
