Composite 2- Sam in the Moon

I'm not sure what the time zone cut off is for this challenge so I'm posting it early today just in case! Boy, was this fun! Since I could not actually take the full moon thanks to the arrival of Hurricane Riley, I had to wait two days before the skies cleared enough to get a moon shot. But at least it's the current moon. I used the profile of my grandson Sam from the archives (and converted it to black and white to incorporate it here). There are 5 different layers of texture here- a bokeh and swirly effect from one program, stars from another, the silly Mystery Science Theater guys, a light flare and another current picture of the snow on the trees after Wednesday's snowstorm. Lots of painting, erasing and fading took place and who knows in what order!
Well done, Ann.

Thank you Wendy, Kathy, Kerri, Diane, Milanie, Connie, Babs, Sheralee, and Haskar! Thanks so much for the views, comments and favs! Just found out we're having some surprise dinner guests so I'll be catching up with you later. Some folks are still without power around here so we're glad to be able to be a good neighbor.

@henrir Did you mean the Composite 2 Voting list? I checked the TT but it wasn't there. It did make me smile to see Sam in the vote.
posted March 11th, 2018  
A great result - you fitted Sam perfectly into the moon and all the other layers add well to the final image.

@helenhall Thank you Helen! The trick with these composites is finding a shot that will merge the right way. Glad you liked it!
