That's a very unusual background, WD; how did you produce it?

Its Paint.Net thing.combination of tools,Blur,Ink sketch,Black& White,Cyanotype, Not in that sequence.Its off the cuff,Your going like the Aurora I'm still working on.But you know artist can't reveal any previews.It takes time on digital canvas which I call Photoshop & Paint.net. which I enjoy working with.I have about dozens TC images in the making that are semi finish.I work on them little at a time.With nice jigger of J.D. ;)

Thanks for the look over and your opinions always are important to me,I tried to think outside of the box when I make my creations which are out of the norm to some.

Brad: Mostly working on images that are composites.And still learning as I go.Today I found out to make Sparkles in Paint.Net which took three uses of tools to get to work effectively.

Henry: Indeed its useful to unwind in the evening along with some TC and little classical music in the background.Works for me. :)

Don C : No not my shop just image I put a twist on.

Craig: I must say you have a keen eye for detail I didn't think any one would pick up on the white metal.But it came to my mind after utilizing the chrome that came in TC's collection of materials when it didn't produce the chrome I was expecting.I could of made separate chrome material,but I tried toning down the lighting which didn't do much. Found a brief article on white metal which isn't uncommon in pillow blocks.The process is interesting to read at the following link
