Outer Galaxy (Postcards from the Moon) – From the Mind of George – George Christakis
This image made me think of a postcard from the moon. If Richard Branson gets his space ship together this could be sold in the moon gift shop. George does a great job putting together this alien world in Adobe Photoshop and has several more images beautiful images here http://www.flickr.com/photos/57081806@N04/. Please read his story below then check out his sometimes outlandish but always entertaining images on his website above.
“Outer Galaxy” is an image based on a photo manipulation method, montage work in Photoshop. It was created using several different photographs, in different time, place, hour. I used some stock parts for the Crater, a star shot, and clouds shots. The Galaxy was created with software by twisting all the cloud photographs, and I gave it perspective to look more realistic. The main project was to give an extra-terrestrial feeling to the viewer. I like the result and plan on making more in the future.
