Summary: The Wanderer Over A Sea of Fog - composited over city landscapes of Singapore and London

Description: Caspar David Friedrich's Wanderer above the Sea of Fog is but surely one of the most memorable and iconic images of the romantic period, the view of the wanderer gazing out onto the peaks styled after Bohemia, conquering a mountain only to be dwarfed by its fearful hugeness.

Singapore Version: Composited the painting with an image of singapore city (Jalan Besar and City area). It was around the period of National Day (9 August) at the time so I put in a helicopter flying past with the National Flag.

Paris Version: Composited it with an image of Paris for Justin. (Download 1280x1024)
