Reraven, if you (or anyone else) is curious how I made your middle shot screensaver with the reflecting water, I combined two art effects on LunaPic. See Post 17 on my PF Photo Editing Tutorial thread here; it has fun photo examples.

In your case, I first used the Space Effect under the 'Art' tab. This gave the photo the starry look. I saved it on my desktop, then re-uploaded the starry version. This time I went to the Animation tab and selected Reflecting Water. To get a copy of this, I used the snipping tool (See Post 2 on tutorial thread) and saved that on my desktop too.

For combining the two photos, just see Post 17 again. It sounds complicated but if you're comfortable with Adobe Photoshop, with some practice it doesn't take that long.

The longest thing is trying out different photoshop art effects to see which one makes any photo look most appealing. Some work great on certain types of photos but not others. For me this relaxing and fun seeing the various creative results. I hope LunaPic never closes down!
