Moon Tears by PhoenixArt

Currently unavailable for purchase

Just because I’m feeling a bit blue.
Photo Art. Created in ps. In this piece I took one base photo of the moon and a single palm leaf. There was nothing else in the frame except darkness. First I selected both the moon and the leaf and added them to seperate layers. Next I blurred the moon on the original pic severely, and then lay the copied moon over the top so that I had a glow behind the clearly focused moon. I then added some more layers into which I ‘painted’ the ocean, the reflections, the stars, and the tears. The final and top layer was the copied leaf… I tried to erase the slight jaggedness around the edges, but then they blended into the ocean too much and the leaf wasn’t as clear as I’d wanted. So I left the jaggedness on there… I think it kind of looks as though the moonlight is shining through the very edges of the leaf.
