this is! there is something quite unreal and magical about the way the sky looks rather like a water surface reflecting the moonlight beautiful:)

Yes, I agree with Rhondita, there is something magical about this photo!

but we are so crazy to ask you the secrets on, seriously I would love if you will unveal the techniques behind this photo....

its a windlight masterpiece, I think all the community could learn from it....

:-) Thanks Pier and Rhonda! Sure will tell!

I did several things here - first I set the angle that the water reflections from the moon appear in the flowers ( there`s water behind them ) and got a first light white glow on them. Windlight setting was Desert sunset, yeah lol , modified and colors changed in clouds, sun color and almost everything - I use this setting very often ( as well as Gelatto ).

I made a layer from the background, as well as from the flowers - blurred and darkened the back several times, then lightened the flowers with addition ( when I remember right ) until I liked the contrast feeling.

I added a slightly scratched texture on the background layer, it`s hardly visible but it adds to the structure of the clouds around the moon. I changed and adjusted bright and contrast several times too, as well as the color depth, seperate on background and flowers layer.

Last I added a very bright light effect in the left corner to the flowers, to get more moonlight glow there. And that was all :-)

well it still is breathtaking even after reading what you did with it:) there is something very satisfying about working on an image and ending up with something so different from the original, but it is a challenge to make the end result look solid and without seams, in a manner of speaking...I can say you have achieved that to perfection:) if I could add it to my favourites again I would *giggles
