Here's one from an engagement shot I did earlier this year. We were shooting as the sun was dropping in the sky, but it was setting behind me, so I used a speedlite on a pole to simulate a new sun adding some rim light and flare, whilst the real sun acted as a fill light.

And this was the view from the top of the hill looking the other way.

That is a great shot. I am assuming you needed to remove the pole in photoshop, if so you did a great job. I can't even tell where the pole was.

Yes that's right, the boom and my assistant's arm was cloned out afterwards...

Impressive. First off, I don't think I would ever have thought of such an idea and secondly my PP skills suck so much that you would see the clone work. I applaud your results. Well done! :thumbup:
