This is a composite of two images: the portrait of the young girl of the Hamar tribe taken with a telephoto, and the village shot exposed with a 24mm wide angle. In this way, I was able to have complete depth of field that would have been impossible -- given the frame-filling composition of the girl -- with a single shot. Notice I matched the light on the girl's face with the background, and that makes this look like a single capture. I used f/11 for the portrait to make sure the face and all the hair were sharp; otherwise, this wouldn't have looked correct.
