The report later said there was life on the third planet from the little yellow sun but it did little more than stare and fly away. The egret reported to his fellow birds that something strange had landed in the marsh that night, but he had no idea what it was.

No Stock. All elements here are from my own photos. The middle globe is actually a garden ornament and the other two, I made with Flexify in Photoshop. The egret is also mine and the “original” marsh is overlaid with Flood Filter (both are from Flaming Pear). Multiple light and color layers also used.

    Wow you are so creative Nadya, this is beautiful. Still finding my way around this site but soooooooooo much talent here it’s fabulous!

  • Thanks Lynne! This is on my other site as well but it’s been awhile now, so a lot of people haven’t seen it. It was a fun project – and I do love having fun with projects! lol

    Thanks so much, Ann! Two of the globes were done with Flexify (from landscapes) and the larger purple one in the center is a garden globe showing the reflection of some buildings just across the street where I took the shot. Other than that, a matter of pasting in the layers (globes and bird), then a touch of Flood. I then tweaked the light with Glamour (VP) with a tad of vibrance as I recall, and a bit of luminous to add a surreal feeling to the bird. I appreciate your commenting! (Oh. And it’s a different egret!) lol
