This evolved as I was shooting and working on it. Originally I wanted to do a "portal" type image, but when I started playing in Topaz I liked the diffusion option and then it went from there.

"Der Erlkoenig" is seriously spooky and although the description may not fit perfectly, I like the "feel" of the "ghost"/death that is "there" but not really, seen by some but not by everyone.

Not sure how DPC will view this, it is a bit heavy on the post.

Oh WOW!!!
Thank you everyone. I really didn't think you guys would like this.

It's NOT Toilet paper ... its a very expensive (not ;-P ) Halloween ghost puppet thing I bought. I liked the spooky hands on it.

Beautifully done and quite - too - realistic. Might put a crimp in our evening walks. Congratulations.
Personal favorite of the challenge.

First thought you were refering to the riding father (and thus missing the child), then realised it's the Erlk├Ânig. Got to love that hand!
