Epic Cosmic Stuff - Harvest Moon

Epic Cosmic Stuff - Harvest Moon

I wanted to capture a shot of the harvest moon as it became full on Sept. 10th. As it turned out, I took this picture on the 9th. If it is not a full moon, I certainly cannot tell! As it turned out, I’m glad I took this picture when I did because we were completely cloud-covered on the 10th and I would have missed getting a picture of the harvest moon at all!

My process:
  1. I opened the solid black paper in PSE15.
  2. I added the patterned paper and added blend mode Luminosity.
  3. I used the invert filter to make the flowers in the patterned paper appear as stars in the night sky.
  4. I added my moon photo and added blend mode Exclusion.
  5. I cut out (erased) a circle in the patterned paper behind the moon to get rid of the flowers showing through the moon using a hard round brush at 100%.
  6. From this point, I duplicated the photo, returned it to Normal blend mode, and added the required elements around the original copy of the photo.
