Glass Planet

By sooty 36  
It`s amazing what can happen when you`ve been Christmas shopping. I bought a Glass paperweight for my Step Daugther and loved the colours and patterns so much, that I had to take some pictures of it. Here is the result of me "messing about" I cut out the background and the only other thing done, was to add some lense flare. Then using the pen tool, added some other `stars and planets` then added a little more flare to the larger ones....Hope you like the affect.
Dee has taken a different closeup macro shot of this. You wouldn`t know it was the same item. have a look.

Stunning! very unusual and definately caught my eye. Is that the true colour of the paperweight or have you played around with lighting effects?

Oooops..sorry Dee. I forgot to mention that I placed a sheet of coloured paper behind the paperweight with a spotlight behind the paper. I tried different coloured papers and cant remember what colour was used on this shot. I think i used a redish` colour. The base of the paperweight was purple in colour.

Thanks Chris, excellent use of cheap tools that most of us have to hand. It looks much more complicated than that though which means you did a great job. Thanks for the instructions.
