... I have ever seen, a bass flute, here with Dan "Gandalf" Laurin =) The flute looks like a mix of a didjeridoo and a water pipe.
Dan is a member of a classical quartet called Paradiso Musicale and I thought he looked a like a musical Gandalf sort of so I placed him in some woods I shot here nearby.

Stunning image!
You've got some fantastic lighting there.

Your composites are always top notch and a pleasure to view.

Yes , Im very fond of compositing. That way you can also reuse every image =)

Brilliant work.

The only thing not working for me is his feet. He looks slightly like he's "hovering" just above the forest floor. I have absolutely no suggestions on how you might lessen that effect, but if you could then imo it would be perfect. :-)

+1 but I think it is cause the shadows don't cross the top of his shoes from the forest floor. I would just burn his feet in a bit to more closely match and that should take care of the glare of the shoes and make it look more composed in the other image.


Always be open to opinion especially if it's mine!

Once you SAY something, I can see that it's a composite...but without knowing that, I wouldn't look for anything. The feet thing mentioned above is the dead giveaway if you're looking for it; but I don't think I'd have noticed without knowing.

That's a very good looking image, overall!

This guy , Dan Laurin is a member of Paradiso Musicale, a classical quartet, and they are quite mad, all of them. Here is the cellist of the "band"
