This is from Monty Python's Flying Circus and was the first thing that popped into my head.

I'm happy with how this turned out and I hope other like it also.

I printed an earlier shot I had taken and cut out the person and placed it so that it looked like he was peering out of the box. Place box in the middle of the road. Flash for lighting.

==> Nice way of work around - CS5 does it better but against the rules ! Your creativity has no limit - really cool :-)

21_F.gif ramblinr?? AWESOME setup. Very clever and well done. My only tiny nit is that the lighting for the box seems to be from a different setup. The light on the fingers is also odd, and I can't discern the source for the highlight on the camera left side of the face. Details, to be sure. Good luck!
