Despite what recent movies would have you believe, Galactus is no mere cloud of rock and dust. He is a being of immeasurable power and as old as the universe itself. Silly Fantastic Four movie.

Here we see Earth's greatest heroes struggling to save the planet (and everything on it) from being eaten by a dude in a giant purple hat. By bringing the line of sight lower, I tried to reinforce the idea that this is a BIG fight and there's really nothing we could do to stop it. By making them look bigger, it makes us look smaller? Something like that.

I placed a desk lamp with a 25 watt orange bulb in the top left corner and my reflector (this time crumpled aluminum foil) in the bottom right, hit the smoke machine, and snapped like mad. This is actually really close to how it came out of the camera. I didn't have to crop it at all and only did very minor tweaks to the color and contrast.

EXIF hungers!
