Daily Deviation

Given 2012-10-11
~stupidHippo's Xibalba is a truly breath-taking piece, a photograph that is literally awe-inspiring on so many levels. From the awesome execution to the brilliant concept, the monochrome accentuates the subject to produce a magnificent impact. ( Suggested by PutYourBraveFaceOn and Featured by 3wyl )

I'd love to read the story of how you staged it and caught it and how many times you repeated it to get it right.
Very impressive. Thanks for sharing it. Makes me want to look at your other work.
