About This Image

Noambe Falls in New Mexico. Mirrored the left wall of the falls to create the cool faces effect.

Thanks Alandra, Deb and Jim. This was one of those shots that I had previsualized completely differently, then after reviewing it on the computer, saw the elements of a Caponigro composite. So Alandra, to answer your question, the faces are actually only apparent when the mirrored half is gradually brought into the original photo, then carefully dodged and burned in from the characteristics already present in the rocks and water. The shot I took after couldn't pull this off as it was a 2 second shot to create the silky effect of time-lapse water movement. I'll upload that shot too so you can see the difference. -Derrick

That's quite fascinating - all kinds of different things in there if you keep looking :)

that's neat. did you put the "faces" in there, or was that naturally occurring in the rocks?
