This is the photo I am going to use this month.
I liked the stark split of dark and light and decided to work with that. I cropped it and then used the power box controls in Sagelight to blend the light, added a soft focus, because I like it, and played with the tone blender controls. To give more balance to the composition I used the dodge and burn to darken the lower right quadrant. I intensified the blue and adjusted the other colours aiming for a nice balance. Using the vignette controls I practically blacked out the lower left quadrant and declared it finished, for this week. For me there is the sense of looking into the blue beyond, into a hidden galaxy.
