This is my entry for WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge. The theme this week is «Horizon» and I’ve used a technique called ‘displacement map’ to blend these images together. Both photos are shot in Krakow, Poland. One on the streets of Krakow, while I shot the model in the studio of Pawel Wodnicki.

Sure will be toughto beat this submission! very creative and so much more interesting than all the ocean and mountaintop shots you just know everyone else will post!
Like we say in Norwegian: Heartful thanks for the compliment.
A horizon is – seemingly – an easy task to solve, but one can always think in layers, like I have done here. There are many good bloggers & photograhers out there, so I am confident that we will see several interesting interpretations.
And, to be fair, the idea of blending two images together is not an idea that I originally came up with.
But, yes; I believe you’re right and that we will see several sunsets, oceans and mountain tops. Then again: a lot of photographers really master the technique of capturing mountains and oceans (one of my WordPress favorites is Jeff Sinon http://jeffsinonphotography.wordpress.com).
If you haven’t seen his blog, I strongly urge you to take a look.
Thank you Cardinal for both the great photo, I do love outside-the-box thinking, and for the mention of my work and blog. Of course, I’m one of those “sunrise” horizons you’ll be seeing this week 😀
Thanks for the recommendation…I’m off to jeff’s blog right now!
I see you’re broadening our horizons with your creativity. Thanks!
Yes, I’ll tell you that before, when I’ve had ideas for things, I’ve been thinking: that’s a great idea, but I don’t have photos (my own material) that are decent enough to get the result that I want. Finally, now I have those photos and I can implement ideas that I’ve playing with for a long time!
That’s satisfying, isn’t it? Have fun with it.
I love Krakow and I really like your photo. Well done!
I love Krakow too. I’ve just been there this once, but it was an awesome city that I’ll definitely return to.
Coming from a fantastic photographer as yourself: Thank you!
WOW!!! You have amazed me and now you are broadening my horizons :D. Thank you very much CG 🙂
I’m the one that should thank you Paula.

This is an amazing shot, Cardinal! Beautifully judged. Fantastic.
Takker og bukker Herr Guest!
Must have been an awesome experience, CG! …just as awesome as your picture.
I didn’t feel very creative for this ‘Horizon challenge’, so … ocean it was LOL
It was great to participate in this photo work shop. I learned a lot about photo and especially light settings (plus I shot a whole bunch of nice photos).
Many years ago, my brother and I talked about going to Krakow. He had a motor bike back then and we would have travelled on that. Boy, that would have been something!!! He would have dumped me somewhere along the way [we don’t always get along all that well!] LOL I’m thankful it didn’t happen…
outside the box! a unique take on the challenge. thanks for sharing.
Thank you very much!
Taking it all the way to the limits, superb CG!
Thanks for the compliment Patti!
Flott bidrag. Liker teknikken du har brukt her!
Hjertelig takk Hans. Jeg liker å leke med forskjellige teknikker.
I’m echoing Paula’s Wow, but louder 🙂 Totally brilliant. I love the concept.
Thank you very much Jo, that’s nice to hear 🙂
