A View of the Moon at Twilight South of the Park by 

I was inspired by a view of the moon through the trees while walking back from El Oso Grande park in northeast Albuquerque, NM last November. If you’ve ever driven along Morris near the park, you might recognize that style of house. I painted this with a tablet in Photoshop.

Thank you to drec for pointing me to Genuine Fractals. It helped a great deal in making this picture the right size for printing.
I regret that some pixellation from the images original. I may update the image from time to time as I fix the issue bit by bit, but fixing the pine tree will be quite the undertaking.

    Excellent work…

    Increaing resolution can be done using bicubic interpolation and the image increased in size by application of mathematics… (not sure what the formula is here though)

    I use a variety of tricks myself…

    Try selecting the entire image with the crop tool and in the resoloution setting enter 300px (leave the others blank) – cropping the image will then up it´s pixel count from 72 dpi to 300

    NOw crtl (cmd) + J to copy tthe layer anfd go to image > Canvas Size increase
    it by 50% relative to Centre and accept

    Go to your background and fill it with a neutral or ‘border’ colour and on the cooiec layer HIt Vtrl + T to bring up transform.

    holding down shipt and alt drag one of the corner handles out and upscale the image to a point you are happy with and hit return…

    If you just want the image then ctrl + click the layer thumbnal to select and go to image crop….

    If the image loses alittle of its sharpness then copythe layer again and on the uper one apply a high páss filter with a value of between 5 and 10 and then change the layer mode to Hard or soft light and drop´the layer opacity to around 50% or so,,,

    Hope this helps….

    and welcome to Digital Brushhstrokes,,,
