This is a composite of 4 images.
I was on vacation in Turkey last week when I noticed the title of this challenge. The idea of a desert ninja came straight into my head. I took the background shots over there but had to wait til I got home to create the Ninja who is me. I needed one shot for the outfit (some black material)and one shot for the face.
You can probably tell I had to draw the sword (no pun intended!)

-------------------------------------

Thanks to all for the comments and votes. I'm thrilled with the score and the ribbon.

BTW I didn't really want to be the Ninja. I'd spotted a waiter at the hotel who looked perfect for the job and I was going to photograph him on our last day. Of course our last day turned out to be his day off. Oh, well.

Wow! This looks like it should be in a magazine or on a video game package. Gorgeous and dramatic.

Excellent work. A modern day Ninja protecting his lands. Love all the fine details in the textures and face. Congrat on the Red.

aside from the inspiration, for me, half the fun of these expert challenges is to really scrutinize for believably. I love great work. Nicely done!
