Spectacular! How did you do it?
Dave Carrington: Hi, Larry. If I told you, I'd have to kill you! smilesmile

It's a shot taken directly into the Sun then much 'Photoshopped': I use CS2 with a kind of 'Let's see what happens if...' serendipitous approach: sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't..!

Interesting shot. Looks much like a contemporary painting.
Dave Carrington: I like painting: if I'm honest that's what I'd like to be doing, but, for now this floats the boat!
Hubble bubble! Amazing what you can do with a mistake!
Dave Carrington: Hoy, you! Not a mistake, more a happy outcome: serendipity, as you have expounded, can produce some very interesting results..! smile
no idea how you did this but it does have an outer space quality. Clever sod!
Dave Carrington: I haven't been called a clever sod for ages: well, not before I finished the 'Indy' crossword for Margaret! smile

wow - great effect! Can I see a join in the middle or is that my imagination? However and whatever, it is a great shot
Dave Carrington: There shouldn't be a join, Paul: it's a single shot!
Looks like you have been in space smile
I see some parts of some planets from another solar system.
Dave Carrington: I often travel to outer-space, Paul. Only trouble is I feel crap the day after! smile
