    Very enjoyable and creative, though I immediately thought of snow rather than stars.

    The hand and the light near it on the stone wall seems a bit too bright for the adjacent tonalities. Those two areas make me wonder where and what the light source could be that would make those two areas so bright.

    Geees look at all those dust bunnies, id get my sensor cleaned... just kidding, great shot as ever, though i thought it was snow as well, you should give classes Sharon.

    On further inspection of the image it might help if you got rid of the "stars" that show on the water to the right of the man and those that show in the lighter part of the sky.

    That was my thought as well. I'd love if you were able to walk us through how this was created.

    A wonderfully creative work - a scene straight out of a dream.

    My vote also goes to learning how this image was created.

    Well I don't work to 'recipes' so it's always a case of loads of little choices along the way....and I do mean loads. I don't write them down because as I say I treat every pic afresh and don't use formulas. I can only liken the process to an eye test..where they pop in lenses and ask 'better or worse?' there is no effect I won't try because i can always just undo it straight away and if it doesn't work at that stage but it interests me then I will use it further down the process and see if it adds anything then.

    This pic started off in Picassa for basic editing and then I went into Nik colour Effex pro4 and used some Bleach bypass and Detail Extractor added the sky using grad ND filter and probably loads and loads of other little tweaks and many filter effects wre tried and either used straight, tweaked or eschewed I then chose an overlay in Pixler express...one of the space ones... and blended and rotated that. There may have been an other overlay at very low opacity just to bring the thing together.

    It's a very organic process called 'messing about' and some pics have 3 steps and some have 33 and I never know until I am finished.

    Thanks to everyone for their lovely comments.

    Quite creative and evocative. Show this to someone if they think photographers aren't artists. (But don't show them any of my stuff; it would damage your argument)
