    Space, or the middle east?

    Studio shot with black foamcore background, a light behind it, and pinholes for stars.

    I had been thinking about doing this for a while, so I gave it a go last night.

    Ha, nice idea. I like it a bunch. Agree that the glare on the globe is a mild distraction.

    This is pretty original Matt. I like it! Did you color the "stars" digitally or use some kind of colored tape or something on the back?

    Thanks everyone :) The glare is a problem yes, but hard to avoid with a very shiny surface on the globe. The problem was, I don't have a light that works just perfect to light it. A flashlight is too narrow of a beam, and the light I used was a bit too wide to control.
    I think of it as clouds :p

    The color of the stars happened naturally, most likely from heat on the sensor. I think this was a 3.2 second exposure.
