Mark as Aragorn

 

Canon 5D Mark II camera and Canon 24-105mm f4 L series USM lens @ 105mm. Exposure Details: 1/50 second @ f4 ISO 200

I'm a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings, both the books (author J.R.R. Tolkien) and the films (directed by Peter Jackson. This statue reminds me of some of the (albeit larger) statues in those monumental films.

All I needed was Aragorn (who I always preferred in his Strider guise) to bring the composition together. I was really happy with the intense gaze of my model, which I feel adds a dramatic edge to the image.

The original color image was processed in Adobe Lightroom prior to being rendered into black-and-white in Adobe Photoshop.
