This image was created for a personal project of mine " Old Australia "
I made this picture just before I switched to pentax.
This is indeed a composite Image. Model shot in Studio, and blended into my 5 Shot HDR background plate captured in a national park near Foster ,NSW Australia.

The man reminds me of Michael Douglas in "Ghost in the Darkness." Great work, sir.

Very well blended between the studio shot and the background.

My only criticism is I find the blown-out exterior through the door a bit distracting.
(although if it was shot as HDR, you may be able to bring that back?)

I agree with the blown out door. Maybe a little burning in might help. Otherwise a great image. Quigley Down Under

Funny but the light from the door doesn't bother me - I imagine the exterior was probably out of character for the constructed scene. What a great bushranger shot! If I had any criticism it's that to me he seems to be looking at the camera rather than the gun sight, but maybe that's just me? Interesting how the DOF of the two images combined gives a special feel to the image. Great work!

Thank you all for your comments. I purposly made the light outside "blow-out" as that was the look I'm after, I also wanted people who view the image to be focused on whats going on inside the hut. In saying that I understand what a couple of you are saying... I guess it come down to personal taste. Thanks Again, Tom
