Sorry Andylea and PKS!!!! I deleted the old one, but honestly, don't you think this is better Smile ?

Hi EPZ'ers,

Hope you are having a good time.

Errrrr OK, I admit. I really didn't have this Scene! But pretty much of scenes are real or I took them in different frames Smile Do let me know if you want to know anything about the editings. I might make a video and upload it to YouTube for you.

We spent the night in remote mountain area again. We made a fire, but it was too cold! It might not be as cold as where you are. But no one except me was prepared for the cold night since we had a morning mercury of 28'C but we had an overnight mercury of 7'C, plus nippy strong winds. My companions were all wearing T-shirts...
The moon's face, I brought it from another shot with higher shutter speed, while I had to remove the blurry lights of REAL moon. Stars added, not mine, I took it from Google. Clouds HDRed Smile Since I have done all these editings, I was capable of removing the person standing or the light and firelight on the right side. Don't bother to mention it Wink hmmmm that should be it I guess. O' I had a bit of struggle with Quick selection tool's Refine Edge!! The leaves to the right and the bush on the mountain to the left gave me a real pain with quick selection! I had to separate the clouds from both ends top and bottom to HDR them separately.

Bless you all and enjoy your time.

Regards
Astyag

I'm going to add that Youtube tutorial to my favs on Youtube.

You are a braver soul than I - and I think you've done a rather nice job on this. I thought it was real, until I read the commentary Wink You could have fooled me.

Nice one.

Happy New Year to you,

Anne
