Late last winter, we planted up a strawberry tub full of violas. I am quite amazed that throughout the heatwave they have not wilted and died. Anyway, the above photo was heading for the rubbish bin.

Then I clicked on a Preset I have and grew to like what the Preset did to the viola. The flower behind the viola behind started to appear to look like a moon in the background. Sometimes, it is worth processing an image that is destined for the bin, just to see if you can create something with it.
