The picture that could never be, and its source

Challenge #21 in the variable subjects I series. Hosted by Lext123.
Challenge has finished
Thanks to modern image editors it is possible to alter existing -, or even create complete new images that could never be captured as a picture. Show me a composition split in two areas with on the left (or top) your source material and on the right (or bottom) the final result after processing. Voters should take every aspect into account: final result, difficulty, originality, artistic ability and composition layout. This will be a weekly returning challenge. Have fun.
