Nick Carter
using Photoshop 6.1
1] Was not going to do this Challenge at first, until an idea occurred to me.
2] First, using the magnetic lasso I selected the bike very, very carefully.
3] zoomed in, until I could select the spokes in detail.
4] Saved selection into a new document.
5] Opened a new working document with transparent background at size I wanted.
800*1100 pixels.
6} Selected bike in its document, and dragged it into the working document.
7] Using the transform tools, I re sized the bike until it looked more side-on.
8] Furthered the illusion by selecting and moving the front forks closer
together, then moving, re sizing and repositioning the arm.
9] Found a photo of the moon, selected it and dragged it into the working
document.
10] Re sized it, opened 'omni' lighting filter and positioned glow on the moons
face.
11] Found a poster with E.T. on, selected, dragged, re sized and positioned it
on the bike.
12] Flattened bike and E.T. layers, then re sized and positioned against the
moon.
13] Looked through my landscape portfolio, found one with the trees I wanted.
14] Masked and selected out the trees, dragged into the working document,
positioned, re sized and scaled to fit.
15] Used the sponge tool to finely delineate the trees and branches.
16] Open the 'Starbits' program and made myself a star field.
17] Copied it, then pasted into a new level. Rescaled to fit.
18] Positioned the layers to give the correct order for viewing.
19] Went into each individual layer and fine tuned, I hope, to give maximum
effect.
20] Opened up 'channels', green, had the most information, so I used that to
'greyscale' everything.
21] Saved into JPG, and E.T., finally goes Home, with a faster mode of transport.

What a unique thought and cleverly done.
