We are the Al Caedes! We will take your picture! We will take landscapes! We will take puppy dogs! We will use our zooms and our primes and our disposables! We will over expose and de-saturate! We will post and vote and discuss! You cannot stop us! You can only join us! Woe to those who do not! They will suffer the most horrible afflictions! They will not know the glory of Al Caedes!!

Very Original !
You may get me but you'll need More Megapixels and a Bigger Zoom than that.

OMG Chip....hubby and me laughed and laughed and laughed some more....what a hoot! *caedes is sure to love this image. I know that I do.
Your accompanying narrative is so full of truth.
Onto the image...what a great job of using the title and creating an image to fit it. Your photo is, as always, sharp, full of detail, the clarity is excellent...composition is perfect for the tile.
This went to my favorites immediately.
Many, many thanks for sharing this with me :=)

John aka Skynet5 came up for a visit and I talked him into doing this shot. He's the one suffering from camera envy lol. I came up with the concept a while back after reading the threads How do You Pronounce Caedes and If You (BLANK) You Might Be a Caedesian. We did separate shots and layered them together in photoshop. Lighting was from a large soft box off to the side and fill light was from 3 4x8 foot sheets of white Styrofoam opposite the soft box. Plus there were 2 light behind us to help separate us from the black background.

Now I have lens envy. CIA will be on your butts from now on but as you both just look like any old photo lunatics you should be safe. A witty concept well executed.

Good good to know that I am not the only insane individual around here. In fact, I would say that the competition for that particular title is fierce.

Well done Chip and John. I enjoy this one and thanks for the laughs as well. :o)
