Digitally manipulated landscapes

 Photographer Robert Schlaug has produced a fascinating series of landscape photographs that Slate reviews. They explain his technique this way:

Schlaug feels his images appear as a cross-section of landscape that lure the viewer into believing they are seeing something below the surface of the land. It’s an intentional trick that is meant to keep the viewer looking at the image for a longer period of time.
But there is something else about the landscapes he has chosen. Many are seemingly mundane, working landscapes. With his selection, though, these landscapes are transformed into a place of focus.
