My first composite image

Daily photo - Have a sit and relax

Today I would like to share different version of this photo. What this scene missed for me were stars. So what I decided to do was to manually add them using one of my older star trails photos. It means it's composite image (as I used two images to create it). Actually it's the first ever composite image from me. For the first attempt the result is quite good I think :)

Although I prefer not to add or remove any elements to my photos in this case it was necessary to achieve image I had in mind. I hope you like it.
