|Artistic Cutout Filter applied in Photoshop CS5|
|NASA Image of Reflection Nebula Applied|
Photo Notes:The original photo was taken with a Sony Cyber-shot digital camera. For the cosmic version, I added a blue Photo Filter to the whole image. For the stone and flowers I utilized effects: Inner Shadow, Outer Glow, and Drop Shadow.
The cosmic background photo is from the Spitzer Space Telescope Collection. That image of a reflection nebula is gorgeous and can be seen here. Credit goes to NASA/JPL-Caltech/R. A. Gutermuth (Harvard-Smithsonian CfA).
