Tim - I had a guy that used to work for me that was great at doing this and he used nothing but PhotoShop. It was pretty cool watching him. I'm afraid my limitation is lack of artistic talent. I really admire you guys that can do this but at least I can take pictures.

That middle picture reminds me of my 401k account this month!

Ok, so this thread gave me an idea for a birthday card for an upcoming 18th in the family.
The moon photo is one of mine as is the portrait but the rest is photoshop brushes etc.
The kid in the pic is the birthday boy and his nickname is Moonface.
Some solid C&C would be appreciated as it is still a work in progress.

I like the idea, but I think that star(?) in the top right corner is too bright; it distracts from the main subject and the other images. If you could put this together with only shots you have taken, I'll bet it would be really special to the birthday boy...

Thanks for the input. I tried a number of variations using only photos but they all seemed to be lacking something. Without the lens flare in the top right it just looks a little flat, I thought but you may be right about it being too bright I will try toning it down a bit.

Yeah, I like it being there (looks a bit like a spotlight on the person), it's just too bright...

Have you tried making your own brushes?
Make your own lens flare, spiral galaxies, globular clusters etc, then define as brush.
You can make your own variations on star spikes, and you can even add color in various ways for different effects.

Well if spacecrafts could be considered astronomy related, and on a lighter note...there is a sale on spacecrafts coming up in a couple of days. Flea market sign seen last weekend.

Ron for the sake of continuity and comprehensiveness of the thread, may I suggest you change the Rule number 4 and allow a LINK (Not piracy) to a good image, that one finds on web and feels is good fit for the idea (That is BTW great) to add more interesting images here to satify the viewer?

Just a thought (Just left click on "Mike R" ^^^ on my above post to see why I say this).

Samsen , unless moderators change forum rules I cannot change my #4 cause that would be inviting problems for this thread from the forum moderators eventually . But a LINK can be posted to such an image .
