Yooper Fishing
I have been holding off on posting this picture because I so badly wanted to post an "actual" creation before I did yet another one-shot photograph MOC. But I have been too lazy to set everything up to take pictures, and my page has been collecting dust, so this will have to suffice for the time being. Enjoy!
About this creation
As rednecks are to Arkansas, so Yoopers are to Michigan... Eh?

Here I was thinking that MAINE was the redneck state. I stand corrected.

Thank you what a wonderful answer! You really, really know your camera. I think my problem is I'm putting the overhead flashlight too close and it just makes everything shiny and saturates the colours. I will play around some more with the settings on my camera and see if I can make it work. Thanks for your help and again, beautiful image.

Did ya know? The term Redneck came frum dem coal mines in West Virginia? As the miners wore red bandanas around their necks. I am a redneck and proud of it. I find this MOC quite true. People REALLY do this. I would too cause blowin up stuff is fun!

Quoting Leda Kat =^..^= Beautiful. Please tell me exactly how you created the subtle lighting in this photo? I've been struggling to no end on an image for days now and I'm going slightly mad. This is simply perfect. Perfect focus, perfect mood, perfect.
I shot this picture at ISO 400 with a 24mm lens to give a wider angle while still retaining a sharp macro focus. A low aperture blurs out the background for a nice long-distance look, and I had a shutter speed of 1/40th of a second. The scene was lit with two lights. A red light illuminating my wall from behind and below the "horizon," and a tungsten light from above to cast a warm, diffused light on the subject himself. The tungsten flashlight was a good two feet above the set-up so that the light it cast wouldn't be too harsh. I was happy with the way this particular picture looked (after taking no less than 40 pictures) and I didn't post-process this picture at all. I hope your photo turns out well, and thanks for your comment!

This is some of the best use of forced perspective that I've encountered recently, the effect is extremely convincing, giving this a great sense of depth. Nice work!

I was wondering weather or not you would post this. I love the forced perspective. Is the sunset the wall in your room?

I've got a distant uncle who's a yooper and could totally see him doing this. Great walkway with the tilting floorboards and I love the forced perspective. You should get a second picture when the guy drops the bottle on accident and not the dynamite. There would be no third picture. :D Great job, Paul!
