The saturation in this makes it very rich feeling, but the values are out of this world. . . or above it. I very much like the effect in this case of reining in the values and color because it creates a special atmospheric effect as with the detail one might see in a very light fog or through a telescope at great distance. And the image is really cool beyond the analysis of the effect.

I really like the fun of a maid servant having to clean the moon dust. Very tidy for that which works the tides. And it's a pity that she rarely has gotten her due credit for her work, this one. Talk about Upstairs/Downstairs. I love that BBC show, by the way. Just been watching the whole series for the first time, hahaha. Great timing for me with this pic.

Brava! :):):)

If there ever was a dream wish that one might hope could
come true, "Dusting the Moon with Stardust" would be that
dream. The soft palette of heavenly blues that accent the
stars and moon adds to the celestial beauty and theme of
this enchanting painting. :)
