My entry for the Billy Blue- Change Your World Contest.
In this image we were wandering about an amazing area full of rock formations taking pictures, climbing up and down everything in sight and just taking it all in. When my partner climbed up into this space it looked like the natural curvature of the rock was enveloping him and almost giving birth to him. It was quite beautiful and I had to set up this shot. The lines on the rock that the water has created over countless millenia blended with the lines of his body almost seamlessly. <3
Once we got home I edited this shot so that the blue veins streaking through the rock were highlighted while his skin tones blended seamlessly with the colours of the rock face. I also lowered the intense white of the open sky beyond the figure so that it better reflected the serene setting it was taken in, where the only noise was that of the waves crashing below us and the wind whistling through the rocks overhead.
