  1. please enplane how did u move the moon behind the deep horns this step its not clear when i do it i keep the moon in the front

  2. Great technical work, but PS has carried us to the unreal, to the detriment of the art of photography. Give me natural images. I’m ok with color enhancement, a few added clouds, etc, but creating this bizarre stuff and calling it art cheapens photography, and takes us backward to the days when ours was not seen as a legitimate form of art. Sell things like this on street corners out of the back of a panel truck along with Elvis paintings.

    1. You can have as much fun or be as conservative as you like. You don't have to do any of these types of manipulations if you don't want, but sometimes it's fun to just play around with the capabilities of PS. No one is suggesting that you sell something like this as a "real" image, but good grief lighten up. If one is a true purist, as you seem to be then they shouldn't be using any post processing nor should they be using any auto settings on their camera. In fact they shouldn't even be using a digital camera since it has the ability to improve a shot without the shooter's input. Total manual on film is where you seem to be most comfortable; not eve sure why you bother looking at this type of article.
