    Well here I find it time to be in Metropolis for the Superman Celebration again this year with SpaceNut. We decided to come down a day early and just relax and take some pictures. This is some from the Garden of the Gods just off of Route 34 in Southern IL.

    Well, mostly this is a compilation of 6 different exposures blended together to form one image. A little of post processing work was done here, but just basic sharpening etc.

    There is some weird stuff happening with a second hill that is exactly like the other one in the background (looks like you have three horizons). Also in the forground you have a little cloning going on over on the right.

    Ah, the good old foothillls of So. Il. and you have captured them at their best. Garden of the Gods is one of the prettiest places in So. Il. How are things in your "Superman" home of Metropolis? Don't sit in front of any windows at restaurants this year.....................

    There is actually no cloning done here. If you look closer, there is a person on the top rock. Two Identical rocks.
