Great photographers are not great because of their technique; they are great because of their passion.

Wonderful capture, Michael. Love the perspective and the lighting. Use of the pear flood is an added bonus. #9661413

Did a lot of processing in PSE8 here. Started with RAW file, ran several Topaz filters and extended the canvas to run the Flaming Pear Flood filter. Added my own stars and moon. A lot of tweeking.
