Four photos, some imaginary objects and a bunch of editing; but not the whole bunch as I only had a limited budget to work with; went into the creation of this image. Naturally I choose a night with a fullish moon to shoot the base image which caused some lighting issues on the side of the house that interfered with the back lighting provided by street lights. Then just to confuse matters added a whole other moon into the wrong position in the sky.

Enjoy and your comments welcomed.

This is a very cool manip Wendell with lots of moving parts as far as your editing is concerned. A great contender for the current competition. Bravo.

The thing that goes the farthest, towards making life worthwhile, it costs the least and does the most, is just a pleasant smile.

Very nice piece of art work and love the colours in the smoke and the stars plus moon add a nice effect to this photo too.

Where there's smoke, there's fire, Wendell.
This low budget piece will end up in Film (digital) Noir history.

how can one use letters, words or prose against its own institution? is it not to say that this accepted alphabet can portray intolerable thoughts against itself; the reflection of these words represent the meaning of ones mindless inquiry, generalizing became this text. . .read the marks behind a letter of assurance/ freedom is jailed within. . ." _ EaB
