Chris Budny level-deluxe May 02, 2006

What a remarkable creation, Melissa! Very eye-catching! I love the red cast to the sky; it has a very mysterious or perhaps ominous mood; the punch of colors in the boat seems so out of place in this landscape---which just adds to the surreal feel. #2718300

The only real photos in this image are the sky and the boat. The rest I created using several software packages and filters. I had posted one similar to this and forgot the moon's reflection. I have rectified this and added a little something...the boat...for interest.
