More of the "Mother Nature Series"
This photo has the addition of a fractal application (vector images created using Apophysis) The use of lighting techniques and masking are used extensively in these photos.
Mother Nature creating stars uses smoke brushes to obtain this effect. More masking and manipulation was used in this piece.
This approach was a bit different than the others as I used glowing lines that were created in photoshop first and then applied to the photo. Lighting effects again were utilized.
