Okay, most of you probably realised this is two images combined. I took this shot of a friend's baby a while back. I think it is a great shot. Between the baby's knowing look at the camera, the look of pride on dad's face, and the grip he has on his dad's shoulder, I think this is one of the strongest images I have taken in a long time.
The background in the original was set in a kitchen and once I decided I was going to use this image I started looking for something better to use as a backdrop. The sunrise works well I think, and it is believeable as a background.
Hopefully people will see this as on topic, I think it really conveys the message well.
No doubt there will be some strong competition so I don't expect to win, I am just really pleased with the way this has turned out.
Alot of work in photoshop went into this image, too much to document here I think. But basically it is two images stuck together.....
