Solar - 001

This shot is made up of a combination of shots taken during the recent lunar eclipse near Newcastle.


The starry object is actually the moon exposed for 20sec at f22 to give the starry effect.


The two planets shown are both the moon but taken at different times during the eclipse.


The space debris or dust is the cloud around the moon before the eclipse began.


All images were combined in PS CS5 using simple layer masks and positioned to create the impression of planets orbiting a distant star.


This may what you would see from a moon around Mars looking back towards the sun.
