Well obviously this must be some extraordinary technique - I seem to have lost it somewhere although interesting, I like to learn new things but this particular photo just doesn't grab me.
Where can I download this wallpaper into a properly size of my screen.?? that will help me a lot. thank´s
I enjoy how these pictures reveal themselves to you gradually. At first glance they're confusing. You gradually make sense of the two layers, the projection and the background, discerning which one each detail belongs to. Then you look at it again as a whole, with comprehension, and see how beautiful and interesting both are and how being combined in this unexpected way gets you to see them afresh, without the *automatic* element of looking at an immediately recognisable picture. It's a neat feeling and very satisfying.
Don't get me wrong, I do like Camera Obscura but although its interesting I feel they tend to miss the ecstatically pleasing spark that a image needs; this one especially with it looking lazy and cluttered and to any newcomers to Camera Obscura this is a poor example..; Even though I know they are anything but easy to set-up.. I would of preferred to see this photograph of Morell's on the Photo of the Day: http://bit.ly/166IYEm . My opinion.. :)
Great work from Abelardo..heard him speak @ National Geographic; very down to earth creative photographer!
The way the colours have loose definition gives the impression of seeping chemicals on an old film. Yet the sharp focus on the rocks and seaweed belies this. Just like Morell's Golden Gate from a couple of weeks ago, the camera obscura disorientates the viewer. But then, so does all good art.
I imagine the head's-up google glass wearers will have the same feeling.

@B. Postel Appears to be that grassy like seaweed that washes up.
