Hang in there--you will get your shot! When you do, it sounds as if it will be beautiful, almost surreal.
As for Photoshop...it is a good way to exercise creativity and enhance a picture. I'm still learning how to use Photoshop to enhance my pictures and help fix some problems. But this image was actually done using Powerpoint for Mac. I just imported the various pictures of the moon, and then saved the final product as a jpeg file. I used Powerpoint instead of Photoshop because I'm not good at using layers in Photoshop yet.
I am still playing with the placement of the different moons, trying to come up with the perfect arrangement.
