The sun image was taken from a second floor, through a window screen; this enabled the setting sun to take on the 4 sided glows from the center of the sun-ball. Then, I cropped the image to the tilted version. Then, that was saved in Photoshop. The flying geese were on their way home for the evening. The background of their flight was the plain sky, also with a slight tipping. Their image was merged onto the saved sunset. The geese had to be lightened a bit so as not to display them as silhouettes...( even though silhouettes are a favorite to show form without distractions). This finished product seemed more graceful with the geese lightened rather than darker. Thank you.
