    I created this image some time ago for another project, that failed to come to fruition, so thought I'd give it an airing here. I was going to post it in the creative corner as it looks more like graphic design work than a photo, but due to the subject matter, and the fact that it is made up of a series of photos and images, reckoned this might be a better forum.

    The photos used are of a skull, a fire and cigarette smoke set over a black background using various blend modes. The result of this was pleasing, but did not have the depth or slightly unsettling quality that I was looking for. In order to try and achieve this I overlaid the photos with a woodcut and a medieval incantation. This seemed to do the trick, and I liked the way that the final image yielded more detail the longer you looked at it. See how many screaming faces you can see?

    Hope you like it, and all comments are welcome.

    David.
