before and after woodland shoot

This is what I miss living in Las Vegas, the woods and countryside of England.  On my last visit home, two of my closest friends and I went on a little adventure to Silent Pool, in Surrey where we came across these beautiful tree roots, we chose here to set up a group portrait.  The 'before' is actually kind of an 'after' too, we set up the tripod and took it in turns to get in the photo, waiting patiently for the sun to go behind the clouds again, and then merged the three images together.  I spent many hours of editing afterwards to bring out the different shadows and highlights, play with the light and add some fancy colours to create a story tale image.
