Feet on the Ground, Head in the Stars

“Feet on the Ground, Head in the Stars,” animated GIF by @aforgrave

The Daily Create #tdc1973 asks us to “show that your feet are on the ground, or that your head is in the sky. Or visa-versa for that matter. Or both if you can?

It was an overcast day here, with rain, so I didn’t have any success getting an image until late in the evening, when I tried a shot from the floor with my head backlit by a ceiling light. In the end, I cropped out my feet and legs, removed the ceiling and the backlight, tried to compensate for the poor front lighting with the blue overlay, and stuck in a night sky GIF.  I guess a bit of creativity kicked at the last moment with the meteor flash, which was achieved with a few extra layers of the blue, sequenced to match the movement of the meteor.
