This is probably pushing the boundaries of what is considered photography, but the only real alteration is the burning-in of a pattern that could be produced in a darkroom. For this, I'm placing it in Digital Darkroom Photography instead of Photo-manipulation Digital Art; aside from the star-chart pattern image scan from an old textbook, the image is pretty-much unchanged.

The image was taken at St. Mary's Lighthouse, in Whitley Bay. I The clouds were surreal that evening, as is shown in this image; they themselves looked like mountain tops breaking through cloud cover. The tones were most interesting, too.

The post-work occurred almost at-random. The star chart itself is from public domain.

Do you make the constellations (stellar map) or where do you took it?

It was an old scan I took from a textbook that I previously used in my old school art projects, so I presume it's in the public domain else my teacher would have said something. I've edited the description to make the source more clear. :]
