FEATURE DISCOVERED ON AUGUST 9, 2011


FEATURED ON MARCH 17, 2012

THIS GALAXY WAS CREATED IN TWO DIFFERENT PROGRAMS. THE FIRST WAS ADOBE PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS, THE SECOND ONE WAS PRINTMASTER 11. I STARTED WITH THE SHOT THAT CREATED “COLAPSED STAR” AND TURNED IT INTO “MY SECOND GALAXY”, THAT ONE BECAME “GALAXY RFC05282008”. I THOUGHT RATHER THAN JUST CALL THEM, MY OWN GALAXY OR MY SECOND GALAXY, THIS WAY MAKES IT SOUND MORE LIKE A GALAXY THAT SOMEONE MIGHT NAME IT IN SOME OBSERVITORY SOME PLACE. THIS IS THE FIRST OF MY GALAXY SHOTS THAT ACTUALLY STARTED OUT WITH THE INTENT OF BECOMING NOTHING BUT A GALAXY. IN FACT, THE PHOTO IMAGE THAT CREATED THIS FIRST PROCESS, WAS NOTHING MORE THAN SCUM FLOATING ON THE SURFACE OF THE WATER ON MONTEZUMA SLOUGH, NEAR SUISUN, CALIFORNIA IN THE UNITED STATES. I TOOK THE ORIGINAL SHOT WITH MY CANON EOS KISS REBEL 300D AND MY QUANTARAY 75-300MM MACRO TELEPHOTO LENS. THE OTHER IMAGES WERE ACCIDENTAL AND JUST ENDED UP LOOKING THAT WAY. WHEN I LOOK AT MY WORK COMPARED TO THE WORK OF OTHERS LIKE “DIGITALMIDGE” AND “ALIEN VISITOR” AND SO MANY OTHERS, I’M AN AMATEURE DIGITAL ARTIST. I WOULD LOVE TO BE ABLE TO CREATE IMAGES LIKE “ALIEN VISITOR” CREATES IN HIS GALLERY.
In order to make the gallaxy, I took the image of water scum and used the Adobe Elements 3.0 program to make the solid surface image look like it is swirlling. The filter in Elements for that was called, the Swirl Filter.lol Then I used the Transform comand in the edit option to smash it down into a slinder shaper, more like a cigar. Once that was done, I used the Lens Flare option, from the filter section in Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 and I made them all different sizes and intensities. After a little work, I used the shadow affect to cover the entire surface in order to burn down the images that were too bright and to make some others look farther away. I even placed a planet in front of a sun by using th burn spot tool in photoshop. Depending on how much burn you use, will dictate how dark your spot gets. And if you think of it, scientists find planets that very same way, this very day. But, that is not the only way they find them. Some times thay can determine if a sun has a planet by the wabble that a small orbiting planet does to the sun it orbits.
THIS IS BUT ONE OF HIS FANTASTIC IMAGES. SO BE SURE TO VISIT ALIEN VISITOR’S PROFILE IF YOU LOVE SCI FI IMAGES SUCH AS THIS.
