A bird of a different type today LOL
this is a shot I put together for a model. Just something simple, but I wanted it to remain tasteful.
What I really want to know is does it work as an image, similar to the "waiting series" I would be happy to see any modifications or suggestions to improve it.
Personally I don't think it needs an adult classification, but if a mod thinks it does I am perfectly happy for that to be done

Thanks guys, started with a blank black canvas, cut and pasted the model and moon on to seperate new transparent canvases, applied flood filter to the two images. copied and pasted the images onto the black canvas. desturated for this version, added a blue tint, and played with it until I got it to the right brightness.
added a few stars to the sky.
jobs done Wink
