US Presidents Day
Contest Directions: U.S. Presidents Day, officially known as Washington's Birthday, is a federal holiday in the United States and is celebrated on the third Monday of February. This year, Presidents Day falls on February 17. Although it has become known as a great weekend for sales, especially on cars, there's a lot more to the holiday. Presidents Day is a good chance to learn more about American History, including the interesting facts from the lives of American Presidents.
Let's mix US History and US Presidents - take any US President and show how he could have served in the office in different times. Obama Crossing the Delaware river, Nixon invading Iraq - these are just some examples. You can also show private lives and hobbies of the "presidents out of their times".

          Mandrake..Basically, light sources are not coming through the window only. There are some low light source inside the room it self. By the way, Thank you for your constructive comment.I have added some shadows on the widow.

        • Out-freaking-standing job!
          But you can get a sunburn from the excessive amount of light here
        • Well, there is a God. LOL I finally inched you out of one of these. I was beginning to form a psychological complex hahahaah Well done my friend, great work. Congrats!!!

          Per the lighting as technical points. It's art. Two light sources can automatically be implied, flash from the camera and ambient Camera flash lights the figure and ambient lights everything else. You just need to make the shadows agree. That is how I put these things together LOL. Once again, a real beauty!!!!

        • Mucho Kudos on the experiment. When you stop experimenting you may as well stop. Research is the vehicle that drives us to the wonderful. The lighting reminded me of Kratos. He favored the bright exposures for light sources and the huge glow. So it can be a popular style, nothing wrong done. I admire you for stepping out of your comfort zone, my friend. Cheers chopmaster
