A black and white photograph of the U.S. Navy DC-3 Super Bus plane wreck of 1973 at Sólheimasandur Beach in Iceland is turned surrealist, otherworldly scene using a red duotone selective color effect. The striking black sand of the beach is natural and adds to the haunting feel of the site, and the wreck has become a popular, though remote, tourist attraction. I opted to forgo my usual obsessive attention to cleaning up some of the detail on this image, I like the way the jagged edges and errant spots of color add to the grittiness of the photo's moody atmosphere. Please visit my Disturbia art collection to see more of my surrealist artwork.
