Inspired by the "from one place" challenge suggestion.
I was going to go somewhere lovely for this shoot, but I ran out of time and had to shoot in the backyard.

Editing notes: This is 6 shots, 3 from each tripod direction. Each direction was added together in PS by putting them in layers and erasing. I missed a bit of soft focused leaves by the front figure's leg,oops. I cropped each down a but and flattened.
Once I had the 2 composites I Brought one into the other and skewed it into the frame, save repeat back and forth until it was too few pixels to matter.

lovely theme, excellent implementation! For some reason, I found the satellite dish disturbing. It could easily have been wiped... Bravo.

Excellent labyrinthian image.
My mind went directly to Robert Altman, for more reasons than the physical likeness; probably for the plot involved or for the precise care of the director for the smallest details.

Did not look at the challenge pics or vote but I would have given this image the highest mark.
