This is a crude attempt at photo compositing. For years, I've admired photographers creating surrealistic images. My favorite photo surrealists are Maggie Taylor, Dominic Rouse, and Jerry Uelsmann. It's very difficult to perform. One is faced with a black page and the limitations of their imagination. There is also the difficulty of digital extractions - cutting out portions of a photo. I like images that play with our minds by breaking physical rules. Here the elephant creates a ripple in the sky. Of course, it doesn't make sense but that's the purpose - it's simply a dream.
