Here is my edit of +Liz Caldwell's image Mt Rubidoux.

Edit was done in Photoshop. Extracted and darkened the silhouette of the bridge, bushes and tower and overlaid it on a star trail image I took last year. I then used a photo filter to slightly change the color warmth of the star trails to match the original image of the tower. I finished up by fading the colours and adding a vintage 35mm border in Alien Skin.

Thank you. Lucky placement on the rotational axis then, though it is Sigma Octantis, the southern pole star due to my location in the southern hemisphere. The only time I can shoot stars is when I go home to Australia. They are almost never visible here in Indonesia.

Edit My Photo, Please  - 
 
Ok guys and gals, here is my first submission for editing. Doesn't look like much but I'd love to see what everyone can get out of it. I will also post my own edit.

You can use the jpeg loaded here, or, if you really want to get into it, you can download the raw file here: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/62725215/DSC_3353.NEF

One of the perks of my job, getting to "play" (photography) fire.

Love all the suspended droplets of water.

Here is my edit of the image I posted earlier.

Initial editing in Aperture - Levels, Curves and burning of the hills in the background.

Second round of editing in Photoshop - Selective hue & saturation changes to bring out the sky. Copied the hill and the boats in the water onto a new layer and used motion blur on the sky, beach and ocean. Went through and carefully removed the blurred sections of the hill and boats as best as I could so that the copied layer remained sharp.

Third Round of Editing - Nik Color Efx Pro 3 for color contrast.

Final touches in Aperture - slight curves tweak after color contrast in Nik and the addition of vignette.
