In my photography I try to represent the world as I see it, but as a one off I thought I'd offer something totally different, the above the result of my tinkering around in Photoshop yesterday.
I see an Alien Eye: Mrs. RonnieAG thought of a supernova: I wonder what you will see.
Please don't ask how I did it as I am not at all sure.

My thanks to all who commented on Winter Mooring, your remarks are always interesting and most welcome.

Ronnie.

Looks like Darth Vader reflected in the eye Ronnie, not sure if that is how you spell it! The colours are awesome and makes a great abstract photograph.

Yes, it's definitely the Extrude Filter - Helenlinda has used this a few times on her uploads, but I've not found any suitable subject to use it on!
A great creation Ronnie, quite different for you, but a fine piece of work! Wink I see it as an eye exploding in space Smile
