Glæsilegt! Hefðir sennilega átt að láta hann standa hinum megin við stíginn, þá hefði grasið verið ein heild.

V good you have the same amount of focus on the two elements to give the illusion--if only the feet were in the same plane or perhaps cropped off at the knees to give the illusion that he is standing next to the lighthouse

It's like a bad post card.

I think this one meets this weeks challenge.

Good illusion, well done. Minor nit: elbow placement - it doesn't look like he's leaning on the lighthouse, well, not really. 8 Swash

It's an old trick, but this is how its done! were you working with the other person how shot this light house?
10/30/2002 08:43:00 PM
Timing is everything. :) This would have worked better for me if there weren't two people at the base of the tower. Also, his arm is obscuring part of the light, which I found distracting. Still, good effort!

well done use of sense of scales.
10/30/2002 10:13:00 AM
whoah, that dude's big. surprised more people didn't do this, neat trick. only suggestion is that pictures of humans are usually better when they include eyes. you picked a beautiful sunny day, nothing beats sunshine.

Good placement of are to accomplish this shot. Good photo qualities. Good colors. A little soft but not sure you'd want this too sharp.

What's with this lighthouse again?
10/28/2002 04:13:00 PM
Too cool.. love the creativity. WONDERFUL!! Bravo. 10 Justine

the two people in the backgound kind of ruin the illusion. after the challenge you should photoshop them out of there. good attempt.
10/28/2002 12:27:00 PM
Should have got the arm to block out the red top, but a good effect.
10/28/2002 12:19:00 PM
If I were that guy I would be squishing the heads of those guys down there! hehe bamaster (7)
10/28/2002 11:46:00 AM
If you would have put the guy reaching back, it would've helped. The shadows could have been cast on him from out of the picture, making it look like the shadow of the lighthouse was on his pants or something like that. But this is pretty well one despite that one little 'nitpick'. - Inspzil

Well done! There are several attempts along this line this week, but this is definitely the best :)
10/28/2002 11:08:00 AM
i knew there would be photos like this but this one is one of the best i`ve seen. 9

If the ground was more uniform, the illusion would have worked perfectly. Nice shot otherwise.
