    That's a great image, but I think Sauron should have a serious word with his gardener - his front lawn is in a terrible state.

    John, it must have been on Flickr that I first saw this wonderfully intense view of Mordor? Either that or some hobbits have been playing around with these forums?

    Loved it the moment I saw it, even though I could feel the eye of Sauron searching, searching, searching....

    Beautifully done!

    Love the lighting in the foreground. Looks as though some UFO has his landing lights on........

    First, thanks all for the encouragement on my experiment! Much obliged.

    Nathan, I was at a rural intersection where there is a single street light at the intersection and it was casting a sickly yellow-green light on the grass that I tried and tried to use in a color shot and just couldn't get with it in a way I was satisfied with. It's after I went to a b/w presentation I began to see a different vision for this.

    But anyway, that's where that foreground light came from.
