Artist's Description

THIS SHOT STARTED OUT AS A DIGITAL PHOTO OF THE MOON AND THE PLANET JUPITER. OBVIOUSLY, IT DIDN’T STAY THAT WAY LONG, ALTHOUGH I DID SAVE THE ORIGINAL. ANYWAY, I WENT TO ADOBE PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS 2.0 AND STARTED PLAYING WITH DIFFERENT FILTERS. AFTER I GOT TO THE POINT THAT I LIKED THE WAY THINGS WERE TURNING OUT, I ADDED A DIGITAL PHOTO OF THE MOON AND LOTS OF LENS FLAIRS TO GIVE THE EFFECT OF STARS. I HAVE FOUND THAT THE EASIEST WAY TO ADD STARS IS TO INSERT LENS FLAIRS ON A SMALL SCALE AND THEN CLONE EACH ONE SEVERAL TIMES UNTIL YOU END UP WITH NOTHING AND YOU HAVE TO ADD ANOTHER LENS FLAIR AND KEEP CLONING IT AGAIN, OVER AND OVER. THIS COULD VERY EASILY BE A PART OF OUR UNIVERSE THAT NO ONE HAS EVER SEEN, BUT THEN AGAIN, IT IS MORE LIKELY A PART OF “VISIONS IN MY HEAD”. THINGS LIKE THIS SHOT, MAKE ME WANT TO KEEP ON CHANGING DIGITAL IMAGES INTO SOMETHING MORE ABSTRACT. THE MORE I PLAY WITH THE DIGITAL DARKROOM, THE MORE I LIKE DOING THIS TYPE OF IMAGE. THE MOON IS A SHOT I TOOK WITH MY CANON EOS KISS REBEL 300D AND MY QUANTARAY 70-300MM AF MACRO TELEPHOTO LENS F:4/5.6:1. I CUT IT OUT BEFORE I MANIPULATED THE ORIGINAL SHOT AND THEN PASTED IT BACK IN WHEN I WAS HAPPY WITH THE REST OF THE IMAGE. THE REAL JUPITER GOT ABSORBED INTO THE OVERALL VISSION OF THE IMAGE AND REPLACED SOMEWHERE WITH A LENS FLAIR. THE LITTLE PLANET LIKE EARTH, I CREATED FROM SOME CLOUDS IN THE SKY, CUT IT OUT AND PASTED IT INTO THIS IMAGE AND KEPT IT ON THE SMALL SIZE. THE LITTLE MOON THAT IS ORBITING THE EARTH TYPE PLANET IS THE SAME AS THE LARGE MOON IN THE LOWER RIGHT, ONLY IT WAS RESIZED WAY DOWN TO APPEAR LIKE IT IS WAY OFF.
