Happy new year to you as well. I'm filled with delight over this image, and with curiosity about the mechanics of it.

Thanks all! This was a lot of multi-layered fun. It is two shots - one of my sister-in-law and the other of Gil - taken against our white walls and extracted. Then I copied those layers - turned to B&W and opacity to 30%, blurred and distorted to create the shadows. Each numeral poster received some distortion and ageing by warping and adding gradients etc. That is basically it - not very clever but it is easier for me to sit and play at the computer than to move around taking shots at the moment.

I knew that was Gil but couldnt figure out who is other woman was.( you being blond with longer hair and so much younger looking)lol Well done. Takes an excellent eye and imagination to do this so well. Happy New Year to you and your my friend. This is just great Viv, i am so impressed!

This is so clever, Viv. Great imagination you have and to construct it perfectly. Terrific use of shadows - you clever thing. A happy new year to you and Gil, and the rest of your familySmile Cat & Terry
