Thank you for your comments.
"Cool" indeed.
A little photo play makes something opposite.
I reckon not to everyone's taste.

Without the moon, I quite like it.

However, having the moon in front of the clouds is a step too far, for my taste.

Clarence, I think your artwork is very interesting. I like the 3D effect of the moon and the trees. Its very unique. Nice Job.

Very cool..

Clarence,

Again you have WOW'd me... This is a very intriguing picture... I really like the effect you gave it.. I like all aspects of it, including the moon and the fog around the horses...

May I ask how you did it.??

Started with a morning shot of horses in the fog and snow....orange color, dark foreground.

Lightened it until horses stood out more which blew out the sun.

Did a gradient map black and white banded giving it a negative image look

soft lighted with gold colored overlay

inverted the whole thing

kicked up the exposure until it was pleasant

grabbed a moon shot, snagged the moon out and inserted it in place of the sun and to give it a surrealistic look, did a slight bevel and emboss with a drop shadow.

Basically, just playing until I got something I liked.
