In the Still of the Night
This is a composite of two images, the scene itself and a sky taken on an overcast day (that's the sun, not a moon but I hoped it looked like a moon). Lots of hue and saturation changes. The tree is just strings of lights that go from the peak down to a semi-circular skirt, so if it looks "flat", it is :) . I made a snow brush to do the snow - first time making and using a brush and I know it's not completely natural looking, but it was fun. Many thanks to my friends in the FFFP Club here at BP for their advice on this one.

Love it Nikki! I think the snow looks natural, but I do live in So California, so I'm not sure that my opinion counts, but the photo is very cool!

I like it a bunch. I am woefully ignorant about using brushes. I'd really like to try it though. You must enlighten me one of these days. :) I think the composite works very well.
