I just thought I should point out to the viewers of this piece, that this is not or was not a photo-manipulation at all.
This is all 100% real the only editing done was cropping.
Knowing and understanding how to create dramatic lighting was essential in this photo concept, just as it is in all of my photos that I shoot.
I hope you like it.
