What a great shot! The minute I saw this I remembered the “Giant Head” option from an Arcade NBA game I used to play when I was a kid! If you haven’t played this game, you might not get the analogy, but it worked for me. Seeing Clint’s head on Blake Andrew’s legs, made me laugh. The shot has a good sense of humor because it portrays the action hero’s face in dramatic lightning on a black background in a hilarious way… on 2 little legs. That contrast is what puts a smile to my face. The other thing I noticed is that this is a film shot and Blake Andrews has left the film’s borders in the picture so we can see that this is exactly how the photograph was framed and shot. No cropping or leveling has been done here. Amazing work!
Thank you Blake Andrews!
