This was actually my first attempt at digital collage, and one of the first things I ever did in Photoshop… the idea behind this image is what inspired me to learn about digital imaging. This was probably around 20 years ago.

The main shot is off the pier at Flagler Beach, Florida. The guy on the right actually had something on his line that was still in the water.
Here’s the original take…

I shot the Dolphin at an aquatic show in the Algarve a year later…

In Photoshop 4 (!), I positioned the dolphin to follow the gaze of the guy with the cap.
It was impossible to import all the tiny splashes and droplets with the dolphin photo, and I spent many hours cloning these in from a series of selected ones. This is best seen with the large view natch :-)

Lightning in background was drawn with Photoshop tools.

Thanx for lookin!
