[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the entrance of my brother's garden, I took this shot with a tripode and sitting on the ground. The sky was absolutely dark, but 20 sec. of exposure pulled out these blue & violet.
The only HPP effect is the creation of stars with GIMP 2.6, "supernova" effect, because the lot of little stars in the original shot (5184 X 3456) was been lost reducing the image.

I like the long exposure result for this scenic location, Elena!

The idea was indeed productive and you got amazing results.
The sharpness and POV are excellent and love the color tones of the sky.
A beautiful composition.

Have a nice Sunday!

Kind regards,

Goor Monring Elena,
That image simpley gave me one word in perspective "Romance". Super nova effect on starts was intelligent decision, lovely deep blue sky and luminosity on the gate is interesting. A beautiful atosphere, wonderful shot, thanks for sharing.

A simple but magical image with your PP work adding so much to the whole composition. Strong POV and great colors.
Very Nicely Done.

PS: I used to use GIMP for my PP before finally getting PS. GIMP is very good and always getting better - and its free!
