The rainbow spindrift is the original unretouched photo. The dome and city were added to make another in my sci-fi series. All work done in Microsoft Picture It.

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.
