Moonrise over Twillingate, Newfoundland
It's amazing how a photograph comes to be when you're in the middle of a strange town and have to pee so badly, but....with nowhere to go and civilization all around (one doesn't want to get arrested!) and the shot that lay before me must be taken NOW! Trying desperately to mount the camera on the tripod, I simply rattled off a couple of exposures and to my dismay they were blurred (somewhat expected). Photoshop to the rescue to create something interesting and here it is. And, yes, I found a corner to hide and pee ;)
This photograph consisted initially of the bible and interior of the small rural church that I came across in the middle of nowhere, unlocked and empty. I'd taken the image and concentrated on the book but at the same time rolled the perspective to the left, throwing the architectural lines off, vertically. In photoshop I corrected it and also found a few good tutorials on sunbursts, which I added, and added some color to the blown out highlights of the windows.
This old house has 3 layers added to get the effect I wanted: The background mountain with the moon, the light over the porch, and the ray from the light.
