Default Seeing Double - Moon Flower

The flower was one I'd photographed by candlelight, and the moon was photographed a few days ago at dawn. Anyone who knows what the moon is supposed to look like will detect that something's wrong with this one, so I've posted the original moon below my concoction.

Default Very Cool

Barbara:

Very Cool, besides creating the composite image you copied the moon shot, flip it then blended it to create a full moom - let me howl - too cool.

Image editing software opens a whole new creative composite world for the amateur photographer.

I like this! It does look as if the moon and flower are reflecting each other's inner light (both of which have none).

I noticed the same thing about the light, Vito. I considered fixing it, then thought about the time involved, then promptly unconsidered it.

I noticed the moon right away. I used to dabble in amateur astronomy and I know my moon! I figured it was a moon of a planet in a galaxy long long ago and far far away!

You could have saved a lot of effort had you just waited for a full moon. :-)

Even with the alien moon I'd hang that picture on my wall. I like it!

I might have had to wait for months. First of all, it always seems cloudy here when there's a full moon. Second of all, we're so surrounded by trees that we rarely see the moon unobstructed, and when it is, it's at 3 a.m. I'm dedicated, but not THAT dedicated!
