    Nice Scott. Certainly very unique.

    I like the first one especially.
    I find the assault on free thought disturbing,
    I find the willingness to give it up frightening.

    Excellent, as usual.

    Wetdog -- no, just composite photos. The first one was a pretty straight-forward studio portrait of the girl in goggles, then I remembered i had the perfect photo of an old plane taken at an airshow, and composited them together. Was lucky the lighting almost kinda sorta matched.

    the fire shot was the fire from some of my fire breather shots, put together with a studio shot of the rapper taken with lighting to suggest what it looks like when a person's face is lit by firelight.

    I could see how they were put together. The reason for the ? was they didn't have that yellowish tinge you see with so much with HDR.

    I really like the first one. I bet she was happy with it.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan
