Thanks - it is a bit of photoshop trickery.

Are you selling prints?

i don't usually sell any prints myself - but i know that Viewbug (and the other services i'm on) allows me to post them for sale, and then they worry about the printing and shipping - I have posted this one for sale in Viewbug if you are interested.

Behind The Lens

Location
this was taken at the Kelpies in Helix Park in Falkirk, Scotland.
Time
a night shot, it was taken at about 10pm
Lighting
only ambient lighting
Equipment
Canon 5D Mark 3, Canon 24-105 lens, on a Benbo tripod, and a remote shutter release.
Inspiration
I had driven past the Kelpies (giant horse statues) regularly, and spotted these huts all the time - i eventually got round to going one evening and took their photograph
Editing
yes, everything was darkened down, then the image was copied and flipped to the left, to match the huts on both sides. It's an image i had in my mind since the first time i spotted the huts one evening
In my camera bag
24-105 canon lens, 70-300 Tamron lens, Canon 5D M3, batteries, memory cards, colour card, Yonungo flash
Feedback
get out there and take the picture. my biggest hurdle is always getting myself motivated to get the shot in the first place. this shot has roughly 15 minutes of post processing, and took 2 minutes to setup and shoot (i did spend an hour wandering around getting all sorts of shots from all angles).
