Felipe did it some time ago and today I try it similiar way - look at the picture - see ghost ready to be busted ;-) ? Also look at WS.

This picture was taken in beautifull Slanic area. There was mountain made of salt and salt lake, 400km from nearest sea! Expect much more pictures from this region.

Unfortunatelly we were here only for about hour, so we hadn't got opportunity to visit old salt mines :-( But maybe some day...?

Salt karst:
Solution phenomena occurring in rock salt by the action of groundwater. Although rock salt is considerably more soluble in water than is the calcite that forms karst topography, rock salt is impervious, and solution can take place only on the exterior surfaces. The brine formed by initial solution must be drained off by groundwater before more solution can occur.

Awesome Greg. It wasn't until I saw the workshop that I clicked to what it was. I am most impressed with the image. Clear shot, dark and mysterious. Nice work. Thanks

Ah, now I can see what it is - just as well you posted the original Greg. Yes, I can the the ghost too. Even Joanna sounds scared! Good mirror image of the lake and very interesting too. Well done.

Great idea and creative Greg..It does look very much like a small but happy ghost as it appears to be smiling! This must be Casper, the friendly ghost?? ;-)) Well done my friend.

I had to go to the ws to understand this photo. Thank you for including it.
An amazing composition Grzegorz. Your lighting in this shot is quite unique and gives it an artistic and darker feel.
Ghostly images in Romania, how wonderful.
Thank you for sharing this with us, and welcome back!

You've got great imagination Grzegorz. It's really ghostbusters. I couldn't understand what has happened until i read the note.
Very good Pov indeeed.
Thank you for sharing.

Nice composition Greg, good POV and nice reflection.
Well done.

Great shot Greg!
This borrowed idea works great and makes the photo much more interesting than the "normal" one.
I like it very much.
Well done!

Great, I had a very good time trying to let my mind fly into this one. Is is very beautiful and surealistic.
The image in the middle is really funny. It looks like a What´s up! dog, or a punky joker :DDD
Thanks Greg. We should make a cathegory for this kind of experiments, I intend to try again. Regards, Felipe.

An interesting experiment in creativity Greg.
I was trying to work out what the patch of light was.Is that a fixed light in the cave or light from your flash,or a beam of daylight? Very confusing :/
