Having looked at the last post I realise that it really isn't very good, to the point that I may delete it. However I still like the basic idea of fading and, maybe, composition. This is a further development of the idea with some photoshop work but this is only on the background, border and vignette. The composition is not particularly unusual as I was looking at a more commercial illustration. Background smoky image is actually a photograph that I took of a recent solar eclipse.
