Wow, that's really neat. Very surreal actually. That lighting's something I've often wondered how you'd do. It's like the effect when there are dark storm clouds overhead but the sun is peaking out below them on the horizon. Not sure if that's what happened or if it's a result of photomanipulation, but you figured out what I've been trying to do for awhile. Share your technique maybe? Very cool though, and well done.
Your latest series of photos seems to be headed in a new direction - or maybe I haven't been watching you closely enough - I love the raw emotion, the political ideas and the artistic nuances of these photos, and I don't think there's any need to mention the brilliant composition, colours and clarity that you bring to all of your shots.
Fantastic shot - was the sky really so black? Are those apartment buildings? Where is this - Eastern Europe somewhere? The dark clouds with the sun shining reminds me of Amsterdam - I've seen that phenomenon there more than anywhere else on earth.
