This is a superimposition, or "digital double-exposure".

I was so inspired by Rachel McKinnie's excellent square-format Birds picture that I wanted to see it superimposed with my own holga shotof the church featured in Hitchcock's "The Birds". Rachel was game, and this is the result. I love it. Especially the extra dark vignetting from the doubling.

This church (St. Theresa of Avila) was also the subject of a photo by Ansel Adams.

In the faith photo essay.

    Wow Gabe! It looks great. I took the mountains out of mine, but I LOVE how yours ended up with them. It gives a really cool effect. Thanks for this :D
