As a rule I don't reveal where such pieces come from. But this one is so odd, I'll make an exception.
I came across these leaves in a shallow puddle, lying on a very brightly colored outdoor playing surface (blue and yellow) in a local park. (It was for marbles!) I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, but thought it had potential.
Back home, I adjusted the colors a bit, changed it to monochrome, inverted the blacks and whites, and then made some final adjustments in contrast and brightness.
I'm quite pleased with the result--especially with how what used to be blemishes became key features in the illusion. For instance, what looks like the planet's atmosphere was where one color was painted over the other. And that line in the background that looks like a comet or a rocket was a dark guideline showing through the paint. Neither were particularly pleasing or artistic in the original.
Sometimes things just work out.
