Hello, Shirley. I love this. Can you tell me how you did the dome and the pic inside, please? This is great! #200804

Yes, please share how you created this magnificent image ... I like it. It stirs the imagination! #1006669

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. #1007803
