Chuck,

I had the privilege of seeing the Kennedy Space Center last December, and I really enjoyed it. I just wish I would have had the opportunity to see a launch as I am sure it is spectacular to see.

Here is my little attempt for your image. Just tried to lighten it up somewhat without killing the details. Thanks for letting us look and play.

Conrad.

Software Corel PP

Using Corel software....duplicate layer, click layer to select "distort mode" > grab one corner node and drag to opposite corner node. Repeat three more times on alternate layers. The clouds were just cloned in as usual.

A mesh warp tool could also be used with this. If you are using Adobe software it should be similar to this procedure. I am just not sure if Adobe PS has this feature or not.

I could check but I dont know what software you use.

Hope this helps.

Mike
