Wanted to pick a recognizable classic and had to alter my vision a little to fit the advanced editing rules. Had originally wanted to clone 21 other images of the cricket ball but realized that would be a faux pas. Got creative and used my refrigerator magnets as proxies for the ball with a red color tint. Hope it's not too cryptic :-)

this is actually quite intriguing for all its literalness. You've created a putative sky with stars and moon... and man reaching for it.

I'm hanging this in my fantasy art gallery

Cute idea. Unfortunately, the shadow gives it away. Perhaps on a lightbox?

The harsh shadows give away that this ball isn't in the air so kinda ruins the effect... shame
