This was NOT supposed to be a green man shot.

I wanted the window, and I was just going to have a big moon coming through it. It was in the same abandoned power plant, and I love this window -- it's my 2nd favorite window ever.

So when I went to figure out how to do this, I had a green guy shot that I had cleaned up a bit. Instead of going back and using the window shot without the green guy, I figured I'd just drop the moon in and see what it looked like.


I liked the green guy there!!

It was so boring without him!

Sitting a couple of hours before rollover and I have a 6.36. Very happy with the score. I assume that my biggest problem is my poor photoshop job on the moon reflection. I spent so much time on this, but it's just not right. But I tried. Over. and over. and over again. I hugely admire people who can do this type of thing!!! I know it's something that should be easy, but I just couldn't figure it out.

Or maybe it's just that people wanted sock monkey instead. :)

Thanks for the comments and the votes. :)

I had to go google regolith to understand this, but after I did then your work really touched me! I hope others take the time to look it up if (like me) they don't know what regolith is.. Double Appreciate for making me use my mind and eye!!!

Well done!
