    Hello, Shirley. I love this. Can you tell me how you did the dome and the pic inside, please? This is great!

Thank you both so very much! The dome was created from one of my photos of a marble. I removed the lower half and used selective transparency for the inside. The city is a combination of several variations on a single cityscape that I have. I warped some of it and cropped and cut and pasted and blended until it looked the way I wanted. I reduced the contrast of the city quite a bit. I added a large rainbow colored flare to the dome, which I spread over half of the picture, then I added the smaller, brighter flare.
