"Starry Starry Day"
Starfish Point, Grand Cayman
The star effect from the sun, and reflected on the water, was achieved by shooting with a small aperture, not Photoshop.

Happy Hour fun, this image had one friend holding a boom with slave flash and video lights up high, one holding an iPad to make the capture through a Camranger, and one to hold the 15 ft. pole that pushes the boat.. my wife thinks I have a problem..
