Default Festive Lighting, Inspired by saly

I think that saly's globe is just SO cool! Can't thank her enough for posting about it. Just had to try it myself, and came up with these - they are all from the same photo, one of the ones I took at Pismo a week ago (see my other festive lighting thread for a different picture of the Pismo pier, taken in the dark, to get an idea of how the original picture would have looked). It's amazing how you can get different effects depending on what you put in your original square selection.







I am having so much FUN with this - there's so many possibilities, so many things you can do with it.

Nice job, mtngal! Each is unique and beautiful in its own way. I did warn you that this is addicting, right?

It sure is! I'm having a great time playing with it. Can't thank you enough for providing the directions to make these.

VERY cool - just tried it in Paintshop and I can see how it can become addictive. Yours and Saly's are excellent... I need practice.

Nice job. You must be a quick learner. They look like a huge sousaphone bell.

Don't know so much about a quick learner, the process is simple. The trick seems to be to pick the right picture and place on the picture (not everything works, for me it's still a matter of trial and error). This photo just happened to work really well, and it's SO much fun, I've been spending a fair amount of time playing around with it.

Wow. Better than the images I last saw in 1973 after ingesting a dangerous and illegal drug. Speaking of drugs, I wish I hadn't learned about the existence of this technique because I already spend more than enough time playing with PP.
