Gammelyn's Daughter: The model clutches a ship to her chest atop a heathery cushion

Daphne is a nymph in Greek mythology. Her beauty attracted the attention of the god Appollo, who pursued the poor nymph relentlessly. Rather than submit to his unwanted attention, Daphne pleaded with her father for help. He turned his daughter into a laurel tree, thus losing her, but saving her purity.

What a great way to showcase a few different pictures while leaving in a striking, strong background image to tie them all together! Best with landscape photography, abstract and graphic overlays are a great match.
