I would love to know how you did that sky. Really well done. The only reason I didn't vote as high as most other voters (I gave you a 6) is the blending of sky and land, where a clear white transition is quite distracting. But overall a very nice image. Congrats on the Yellow.


hey Girish .. are you saying that the stars in the sky were added in the preset .. and weren't from your photos ..
i was under the impression that anything we used in an extended edit ... and that had a big effect on the image .. would have to be from one of our own photos ..
like all the bokeh effects i add in my extended edits are from photos i've taken with the intention of adding them to my photos ..
very interested to hear about this one .. :)


hey Girish .. thanks so much for showing me what you have done ..
it all makes sense now .. congratulations again on such an awesome image .. love what you did to it .. you really made it pop .. :)

Love the light, and those scratches in the sky are intriguing. Lends a whole otherworldliness to the image.
